Boston’s men in blue are feeling very blue these days. A sweet little calico known as SWAT Cat has been missing for three weeks, and the Boston police want to find her. She was adopted by the department in 2013 after she started hanging around the station, according to local news station WHDH. The officers became fond of the little female cat and had her spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. They also built her a heated shelter near the station, The Boston Globe reports. SWAT Cat is a beloved member of the force known for snoozing on motorcycle seats and greeting officers with a friendly purr or leg rub.
“She had become part of the family,” Officer Evon Burroughs told The Globe. “But it’s sad, she’s not there. It’s like going to work and not seeing a well-liked coworker.” Anyone with information on SWAT Cat is asked to call the Boston Police Department at (617) 343-4520.
