Recently, Brooklyn’s NYPD 60th Precinct welcomed a special new member onto their team. An adorable 6-month-old tabby kitten!
“I told them, ‘I have two cats at home and two dogs, and I don’t have a problem with it, but we got to get a litter box and you have to clean out the litter box,” Deputy Inspector William Taylor explained to Brooklyn Paper.
“I’ll even foot the expense, the food, the water, the treats — but I’m not cleaning out the litter box.’”
Everyone agreed, and the precinct’s newest member is now fondly known as, Martin – named after Officer Martin D. Costanza, one of the officers who had pleaded to keep him.
Martin is now living his best life at the precinct, enjoying being spoilt by all the officers! He joins at roll call each day, “inspecting” everyone and making everyone smile!
“He cheers me up. The guys come by and get a chuckle out of him, the ones who are having a hard day,” Taylor said.
“He’s definitely lifted spirits. There’s not one person here, cop or civilian, that doesn’t adore this cat,” Deputy Inspector William Taylor told the New York Post. “He has the run of the precinct. He took control of the place right away.”
If you love Martin too, please share this story with your friends and family.
