28-year-old Police Officer Cody Garrett was on duty in South Carolina, when he heard an animal crying underneath a dumpster.
It turned out to be a tiny kitten. He took her back to the station and – with a cat at home already nursing four kittens – offered to adopt her.
The kitten (christened “Squirt” after she sh*t everywhere whenCody got her home) was only about half the size of the other kittens being nursed by his cat (Toothless), but she settled in fine:
While she seems to be getting on great with her adopted mum and siblings, Cody is definitelySquirt’s favourite. He recently posted a picture to Reddit(which is now, understandably, going viral) of the two of them together on duty:
By the looks of it, they’re pretty inseparable.
He seems, however, to have found a new best friend and partner in Squirt. You can check out a video of her chilling at home (while off duty, of course) here:
How heart-warming is that?!
