As a publicity stunt and a way to adopt a kitten, the Troy police department decided to adopt a cat nicknamed Pawfficer Badges. Unfortunately, Pawfficer Badges was diagnosed with feline leukemia in May 2018, a serious disease that is easily transmittable to other cats. Then she passed away in February.

Since feline leukemia can be so deadly, get your cat examined by a veterinarian regularly to make sure your cat stays healthy. Fortunately, the Troy police department had adopted Pawfficer Donut as Pawfficer Badges’s replacement. Let’s hope the Troy police department continues supporting cats as they protect society.
