Officer J.N. Rowsey of the Durham Police Department in North Carolina had no idea she’d be on a call that would change her life when she arrived at work earlier this week.
But by day’s end, there’d be two lives that were changed for the better.
Rowsey and her partner were patrolling a neighborhood when they came upon a little cat that was alone, afraid, and in distress. The cops came to a halt, abandoning their duties to assist the cat.
The Durham Police Department reported, “[They] scoured the area in an attempt to locate the kitten’s owner or mother.” “However, they were unsuccessful.”
It became evident that the small stray kitten didn’t have an owner or a home of her own. That, however, did not take long to change.
The kitten selected Officer Rowsey as her new mother after only a short time in her company. And Rowsey had no choice but to accept it.
Rowsey now had the prettiest new companion on the planet.
What began as a routine stop to help an animal in distress ended with the start of a new friendship that will last a lifetime.
“The lucky kitten found a new home with one of the officers,” the police department wrote. “[She] quickly made [herself] comfortable and appears very happy to have found a new home with Officer Rowsey.”
