"Whenever an officer would go in or out, he would run back inside real quick," Montgomery told The Dodo. "He wanted to be pet and held. He likes being on shoulders, very much. He’ll climb right up."
In hopes of tracking down the cat's owner, if he had one, the officers posted pictures of him online, but no one came forward to claim him. So, instead of sending the cat to an animal shelter to try his luck at being adopted, Montgomery stepped in to offer him a place in his own home.
