New Zealand’s adorable cat cop not strong in the field, but ‘good at admin’

BY JOHNNY LIEU From Mashable

Cats aren’t the first animals you’d think to join a police beat, but in New Zealand, things are a bit different.

Tia the cat works at Wellington District Police, helping out senior constable Kerry Morrell at its scene of crime office, as per a video posted on its Facebook page.

Look, Tia may only be able to work around 30 minutes at a time, but fortunately she’s pretty receptive to a pat or three.

“She’s also pretty good at admin, paperwork, and the odd bit of light typing. But her favourite thing is nap time,” a police spokesperson told the New Zealand Herald.

“Tia doesn’t come to work very often. Our human officers work so much faster so she tends to stay home most of the time. And she knows our dogs are just a little bit better at some police work than cats.”

Tia isn’t the only feline helping police in New Zealand with their work: There’s also Snickers the cat, who helps out police over in Whangaparaoa, and has his own Instagram page.
