In Baltimore, Maryland, an Anne Arundel Police officer has a new best friend. According to the Facebook page of the Anne Arundel Police Department, Corporal Hollis had been in a home where an elderly man recently died, and the cat had been left alone. When officers arrived, the frightened cat, dubbed Julia cried pitifully, and had no one to care for her.
It was determined the man who had just died had recently also lost his wife and the couple had no known next of kin. Officer Hollis picked the scared cat up, cuddling her in his arms and transferred Julia to the Anne Arundel County Animal Control where she stayed for the required amount of time until it was confirmed she would be eligible for adoption. And now here is the adorable part of this story for both a beautiful cat and a handsome police officer. As soon as Officer Hollis found out Julia was available to be adopted, he was right there at the shelter ready to give her a life-long home.
In the words of the “Friends of Anne Arundel County Animal Control” Facebook,
“He’d already been thinking about adopting a pet before meeting Julia and just couldn’t get her out of his mind, he said. Have a great life, Julia!”
Thank you for your service Officer Hollis, and thank you for being a hero to those who cannot speak.
