DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Two helpless kittens were trapped between two fences on adjoining residential properties in Daytona Beach when Hurricane Dorian's outer bands were approaching Florida's East Coast on Wednesday, Sept. 4 after pounding the Bahamas.

Two Daytona cops responded to a distress call from a concerned citizen who could hear the cries of the tiny fur balls.

James Bissa, one of the two responding cops, was able to squeeze his hand through an opening in the outer fence and grabbed the tiny felines - one at a time - dubbed Dorian I & Dorian II.
