A cute kitten seems to have the power to halt everything going on around it, including in a Sheriff’s office.
A small black kitten wandered into Alameda County Sheriff’s office, California, and the officers couldn’t help but bring him inside for some cuddles.
The whole black cat superstition can go straight out the window when it looks this cute.
The department posted on their Facebook:
This little kitten has been loitering around our Eden Township Station for the past 2 days. We think he was trying to walk on as a K-9 unit and refused to leave until he got into the building for an interview.
Once in the sergeant’s office, he took over the printer and had a little nap. He’s got a big attitude but is super cute. We are happy to say he was taken to the vet by Deputy Scalise and she is going to adopt him.
Now, he just needs a name?
This isn’t the first cop who’s fallen in love with a kitten they rescued on the job.
Turns out it was a tiny kitten, queue the awwws. They decided take it back to the station, but were a bit unsure what to do with her. However, no stranger to cats, Garrett, 28 – who has four of his own – decided to name it Squirt and take her home.
Speaking to The Huffington Post, he said:
Police officers aren’t the enemy. We have families, we like rescuing animals and playing video games. We’re not just out doing the crazy stuff people see on the news.
In one tale of a uniformed kitten saviour, the kitten took more of a back seat in the story!
Cue Lieutenant Nick Grimmer and Tigger the kitten, who he rescued after a 300-mile journey.
Tigger was discovered in Nick’s bumper after he left Birmingham Airport, on Monday, and drove to the Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose in Cornwall via Bristol and Bath.
During the drive home, he heard a purring sound coming from his car and looked all around the vehicle, but still couldn’t find what was making the noise.
Nick, 32 – who flies submarine-hunting Merlin helicopters with 814 Naval Air Squadron, known as the Flying Tigers – finally discovered what the source was the following morning, after help from his colleagues.
I called up some of our air engineers who came and helped me to start dismantling my pride and joy. On taking off the rear bumper we were greeted by a tiny tiger-striped kitten. He must have had a long journey but remarkably is unharmed. I am never late for work and was left with no option but to take my new friend in with me.
Nick added that the only place the kitten wanted to be was in his flying helmet and loved sleeping in there. Too. Damn. Cute.
People on the internet were far more concerned with the pilot than the kitten!
In most cases though, the kitten always comes first.
