sensation after rescuing an adorable kitten that he now takes on patrol with him.
Cody Garrett， 28， of Spartanburg， offered to take the tiny kitten home with him after another officer found the cat hiding under a trash dumpster to get out of the rain and brought her back to the police department.
cop told ABC News he already had a rescue cat named Toothless at home who happens to be nursing four kittens.
When the kitten met her 'adopted mom' for the first time， she went to the bathroom—earning her the name Squirt.
'That’s one of the only reasons I brought her home instead of taking her to the Humane Society，' he said of Squirt. 'She needed a mom so it worked out.'
Squirt is continuing to get stronger thanks to the support of her adoptive family， which includes her new mom， her four siblings， and Cody's two dogs.
Cody later took to Instagram to share photo of himself with Squirt，
More than 1，300 people liked the photo， with people from all around the world singing his praises.
Since he brought Squirt home with him， photos and videos of his new pet.
