Swat Cat Is Given A Home By Her Friends At The SWAT Unit
A Calico kitty going by the name of Swat Cat recently found a home thanks to the Boston Police Department.
Swat Cat decided to move in with the SWAT unit of BPD back in 2013. She mostly liked to receive meals and belly rubs.
Swat Cat has won the love and admiration of an entire SWAT team. She holds an entire team of tough-as-nails cops in her little paws.
Last year Swat Cat suddenly disappeared for three weeks and they were concerned that she might never return. So they decided to find her a home of herself, one which doesn’t encroach upon her independent spirit.
The BPD SWAT team built a lovely home for Swat Cat, their mascot. The corresponding Facebook post went viral and won thousands of likes and shares.
However, they went further with the construction of the home for Swat Cat. The department wrote:
Yesterday, on Friday February 10, 2017, officers assigned to Mobile Operations set up a new kitty condo for their team mascot, affectionately referred to as SWAT Cat.
The officers in the unit have been caring for the adorable stray Calico since she began prowling around the BPD Special Weapons and Tactics base back in 2013.
Officer Jamie Pietroski, a 15-year veteran of the Boston Police Department, stayed late after work for several nights painstakingly preparing Swat Cat’s new home.
The condo features a spacious studio interior layout, a large deck for outdoor dining and glass sliding doors offering panoramic city views.
Swat Cat moved right in and looks very happy with her new custom kitty accommodations.
Swat Cat first started moving around with the SWAT officers at their Roxbury base.
Swat Cat doesn’t embark upon missions herself, however she stays for the moral support. All she asks for in return is a little bit of belly rubbing. The SWAT team loves her.
To quote BPDNews,”This stray Calico kitty joined the BPD in 2013 when she began prowling around the Boston Police Special Weapons and Tactics base, rolling over for belly rubs from the officers, and showing up for chow time with the unit.”
Swat Cat also likes to assert her independence which is why she refuses to become a domestic pet. She never moves in long term.
As a solution to the problem, they built her a home all of her own, so she could have her own crib, in the garage at the SWAT base.
Jamie Pietroski spearheaded the entire mission to build Swat Cat a home.
They built the Swat Cat condo outside of the station. Like this, Swat Cat always has shelter, someplace dry to call home, and she can come and go as she likes.
She disappeared for three weeks in January 2016 though. This concerned everyone. She has quite the wanderlust.
The SWAT team was really worried about her and so they even set up a search party and advertised her disappearance.
When Swat Cat returned she was a little more sickly, but her nature hadn’t changed.
Swat Cat was met with an abundance of love from her SWAT friends. That’s when they decided that she should always have a home she can call her own.
Swat Cat moved into her new crib as soon as it was all set up. She seems thrilled about being able to stay close to her friends.
