The official Twitter handle of Avon and Somerset Police shared a picture of dozens of wrapped up powder pouches with a tweet that read, "Forget police dogs, we should start training up cats."
While dogs are often used to detect substances such as explosives and illegal drugs, it is a cat this time who somehow has managed to find a bag full of drugs. The owner of the feline, from St Pauls in Bristol, England, spotted the pet curled up next to the bag it had bought back home the previous night. Shocked, the owner reached out to the police, who then shared the story on social media.

According to a BBC report, while the contents of the bag are yet to be analysed, it is suspected that the bag may consist of class A drugs.
People on social media were quite amused by the incident. While some cracked hilarious ‘cat jokes’ others wondered whether the cat ‘really’ brought the bag home.
