NYPD’s 60th Precinct adopts kitten as mascot
A kitten walked into the NYPD's 60th Precinct in Coney Island and found its forever home.
"Someone came to the precinct one night, and they brought the cat in, and they were saying how they moved into a new place, and they weren't so pet friendly," says Officer Martin Discostanzo. "They did not really want to throw the cat out onto the street to fend for itself."
As officers debated what to do, many of them decided they wanted to help, but none of them could take the cat home.
So they asked their commanding officer if they could keep the kitten at the precinct building, and he agreed, although some officers now have to take allergy medicine.
