Boston Police are asking the community to help it find the SWAT team’s unofficial mascot: an adorable calico cat named “SWAT Cat.”
SWAT Cat “joined the BPD in 2013 when she began prowling around the Boston Police Special Weapons and Tactics base, rolling over for belly rubs from the officers, and showing up for chow time with the unit,” BPD stated. “However, approximately three weeks ago, this two-year veteran and unofficial mascot of BPD SWAT went missing.”
Understandably, the team is worried about their beloved pet.
Even Boston Police Commissioner Williams Evans commented on the loss, tellingWHDH Bostonthat as tough as the team is, the cat really means a lot to them.
“Let’s hope they find the SWAT cat,” he said.
