We’ve all seen at least one movie where a cop has a dog for a partner.

Turner and Hooch with Tom Hanks. K-9 with James Belushi. Top Dog with Chuck Norris (ok, maybe we haven’t all seen Top Dog). But have you ever heard about a cop with a KITTEN as a partner? Probably not. Well, not until now that is!

Meet Cody Garrett, a 28-year-old police officer in South Carolina also know as DonutOperator on Instagram. During a late night shift, Garrett received a call about a small animal crying under a dumpster nearby. It turned out to be this tiny kitten.

Garrett brought the kitten back to the station to figure out what to do with it. Since no one there wanted it, Garrett offered to take it home with him and named him Squirt.

DonutOperator decided to adopt the kitten and since then the two have been ridding the streets of crime together. Well, the cop has at least. Squirt seems more interested in staying home and playing. Or pretending to play. While actually guarding the house from burglars. Of course.
