Police have a dangerous and often thankless job. Fortunately police in las Vegas got to help out a stray cat that had gotten its head caught inside an empty soup can.

While one officer held the cat down, a second officer carefully twisted the can off the cat’s head. After the cat was freed, it ran away, but at least the police officers did a good deed by rescuing a cat.

So the next time you see the police, thank them for being around. If you’d on’t need their help, perhaps a cat might one day.
