Cat Carried To Safety On Portland Police Officer’s Shoulder (PHOTO)


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The particular cat. In the bathroom. On the officer’s shoulders?

Nope, not a game of “Clue. ” But police say one orange tabby wanted to be closely involved whenever officers responding to a burglary survey searched the cat’s home in southeast Portland. Sgt. Pete Simpson says police were called Monday afternoon when a woman returned home from work to find her house burglarized. When police entered the house to search for a suspect, Officer Sarah Kerwin noted broken glass on the floors of the basement and a restroom.

Because the resident kitty was walking around on the floor, the official picked up the cat to make sure this didn’t step in the glass. The particular cat happily climbed onto Kerwin’s shoulders and stayed there as police finished searching the house.

No burglar was found.
