The cat. In the bathroom. On the officer's shoulders?
Nope, not a game of "Clue." But police say one orange tabby wanted to be closely involved when officers responding to a burglary report searched the cat's home in southeast Portland.
Sgt. Pete Simpson says police were called Monday afternoon when a woman returned home from work to find her house burglarized. When police entered the home to search for a suspect, Officer Sarah Kerwin noted broken glass on the floors of the basement and a bathroom.
Because the resident cat was walking around on the floor, the officer picked up the cat to make sure it didn't step in the glass. The cat happily climbed onto Kerwin's shoulders and stayed there as police finished searching the house.
No burglar was found.
