Girl sends letter asking why there are no police cats, gets amazing reply

The UK might soon have felines as officers of the law, after an adorable little girl sent a letter asking why there are police dogs but no police cats.

Five-year-old Eliza Adamson-Hopper wrote to her local inspector about the merits of having cats policing the streets. According to her, they “have good ears and can listen out for danger” and “are good at climbing trees and hunting and could rescue people that were stuck”.

Chief Constable Micahel Barton of Durnham Police replied to her message, saying that it was a great idea and he’d talk to their animal unit on how they can employ felines. As a bonus, he even drew in his cat Joey at the back.

But the story doesn’t end there – turns out the force really did take her suggestion seriously!

Inspector Richie Allen, of the Dog Support Unit, said: “I can confirm the force is looking into recruiting what we believe to be the first UK police cat.

“Their duties and responsibilities have not yet been agreed but if nothing else they will become the force mascot.

“Of course if it smells a rat we’ll expect it to catch it.”
