Deputy Harry Guillot is an officer with the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office. As Hurricane Barry drew closer, the deputy responded to the crash and assisted the driver of the vehicle into an ambulance. When he returned to the car he found the kitten, who thankfully wasn’t injured.

Animal Control was called to take the kitten and keep her safe during the storm. Although Barry was downgraded to a tropical storm shortly after making downfall, it was still very dangerous and people. Officials ordered a mandatory evacuation for areas south of Leon Theriot Lock in Golden Meadow, including Port Fourchon.

When Deputy Guillot contacted the driver he learned she would no longer be able to care for the kitten. So he adopted her himself and named her “Crash.”
