No matter what part of the world you may live in, there will always be crime. That’s why five-year old Eliza Damson-Hopper wrote to Durham Police chief Mike Barton, suggesting that if police use dogs, why not use cats as well?
Eliza’s letter read: “A police cat would be good as they have good ears and can listen out for danger.
“Cats are good at finding their way home and could show policemen the way.
“Cats are good at climbing trees and hunting and could rescue people that are stuck.”
If police do you decide to use cats, you can expect them to sit around and nap most of the time while letting dogs and humans do all the dangerous work.
