A woman and her cat were stopped by officers because of an “obvious license plate violation,” Massachusetts State Police reported

The officer who pulled the woman over also made sure to make on the woman's cat, which was “friendly and happy” as it sat in its carrier on the front passenger seat. 

Both were then taken to the Millbury barracks for booking. The police made sure to emphasize that the cat was not booked at the station. 

After the owner of the cat was released on bail the two were reunited.
