Mews and Nips: Feline Police Department Veteran, and More
I always enjoy stories about working cats. Earlier this week, Catsparella reported on a cat who’s a 14-year-veteran at the Victoria Police Department in Canada. The white mitted grey cat was brought to the communications center (hence her name) as a kitten, and has been manning emergency phone lines ever since. When asked what would happen if a prospective employee was allergic to cats or otherwise not thrilled to be sharing an office with a cat, a police department spokes person said ““If you don’t like cats, well then apply for a job somewhere else. You can stay out of the room, or you can take anti-histamines, but the cat is staying.” Read the full story on Catsparella.
Last week, we reported on a paralyzed cat who received a wheel chair custom built for him by local high school students in Pennsylvania. Now a nine-month-old cat in Colorado, who was born with a spinal defect that left her back legs partially paralyzed, got a new lease on life, courtesy of a high school robotics club. It was almost instant happiness for Flipper when she received her new set of wheels. Read the full story, and watch a wonderful video, on Mousebreath.
The cat in today’s video is one smart kitty! I wonder how he knows?
