Step Aside K9s, This Police Department Is Campaigning For A Cat

Police K9s are a known thing…but have you heard of a police feline? A police department in Michigan is lobbying hard to secure a four-legged friend to join the force, but their quest is not for a dog.

The kitty campaign got underway just a few days ago on the Troy Police Department’s Twitter feed…the humorous posts, which kicked off on Tuesday with the request for a lofty goal of 10,000 followers, have been coming fast and furious in the days that have followed:

The number of department Twitter followers continues to rise as the cat campaign gains momentum – spurred on, of course, by the barrage of feline oriented Tweets.

A couple of kitties have already interviewed for the job – on Friday, the Michigan Humane Society brought in two cats who might fit the bill for a career in covert paw enforcement.

Right now, there are nearly 7,500 followers on the Troy Police Department Twitter feed…with just a few weeks until April (and support for the campaign growing daily), it seems likely that the goal for 10,000 followers will be met, and possibly exceeded.
