Boston's 'SWAT Cat' Missing For Weeks Has Returned

The Boston Police Department reports that their adoptee, affectionately nicknamed "SWAT Cat," has returned to her home with the Special Weapons and Tactics team after nearly two months away.

The black, white, and orange female had gone missing at the end of November, and the team posted her picture on social media as part of their search effort.

When the cat wasn't found, it was assumed she was dead or was not coming back.

However, she was spotted Thursday morning, and a police spokesperson has since commented to NBC, "The team is very excited, very happy that she's OK. You never know what could happen in the city so the fact she returned safely is wonderful."

The animal's whereabouts during the time she went missing are unknown, but witnesses note that she appears relatively healthy other than weight loss.

The stray cat first began to linger around the station in 2013.
