Boston Police in the Roxbury neighborhood have been feeding the same calico cat they've dubbed “SWAT Cat” since she first showed up in 2013. Why is she called SWAT Cat? She's especially fond of sneaking into the department's Special Weapons and Tactics base. But as a police spokesman told ABC News, they grew concerned when the cat disappeared for a few months, only to show back up recently.
So to try and get her to stick around, Officer Jamie Pietroski, a 15-year veteran of the Boston Police Department, decided to stay after work for several nights to build SWAT Cat a house so that she had somewhere to “relax while visiting the police department.”
According to the police department's website, the home features "a spacious studio interior layout, a large deck for outdoor dining and glass sliding doors offering panoramic city views." They added that SWAT Cat moved in without hesitation.
