HURST (WFAA) — When Michaela Brown heard a traffic pole meowing Wednesday afternoon she thought she might just be crazy.
That wasn't the case.
"I originally told the officer I swear it was a kitten because I foster for rescue groups," Brown said.
Somehow, a cat found herself stuck in a traffic light post off Bedford Euless Road in Hurst. When Brown heard her scared cries, she jumped to action and called animal control. That's when a team of city workers joined in to help get the cat out.
Brown took to her Facebook page to share video and images as the rescue was underway.
Animal control officers and a city worker attempted to get the cat from the bottom and top of the pole, but ultimately were able to pull her to safety through an opening in the middle.
"We have HER!" Brown wrote Wednesday afternoon afters crews lightly pulled the cat out to safety. "Meet little miss Traffic Light."
"It's different for a name and makes people ask why she's named that so then I get to tell her story," Brown said of the name.
The cat will be available for adoption through one of Brown's favorite rescue groups, Ninja Paws. However, she said she's first treating the cat for minor medical needs. Anyone interested in Traffic Light can firstname.lastname@example.org.
