It’s tough to predict the future, isn’t it? But I have a prediction I can positively guarantee. For as long as you live, you will never see a police car that boasts having a cat inside.
We’ve all seen the K-9 police cars around town, right? And inside, we know there’s a highly trained dog ready to follow commands, prevent crime, and basically be a super hero. But never will you see a car that has replaced K-9 with Feline.
Can’t you just picture it? There’s a bank robber on the corner who starts running the minute he sees cops on his tail. But instead of a handy German Shepherd who can run like the wind to catch him, you now have a tabby cat who leaps from the car and heads straight up a tree.
Or falls over to roll around on the sidewalk.
Or simply glares at you for suggesting he give chase. Ain’t gonna happen, my friend.
And forget about drug sniffing. If catnip or tuna isn’t in those lockers, a cat will simply sit down and take a relaxing bath.
I will acknowledge one possible benefit. A cat in the car is likely to commence howling, and this could replace a faulty siren. So there’s always that.
I’m pretty sure cats would enjoy my books, however. I mean, cats like mine who have a sense of humor.
