Tiger the cat was reunited with his owner, Michelle Gonzalez, after going missing for over a year. Tiger, now 14 years old, had been spotted by Detective Buddy Masters several times in the area of 400 East Palmola Street as he cruised the area working a case. Detective Masters, who has rescued cats in the past, stopped to see if Tiger was injured and checked with a nearby resident who said that Tiger was without a home. The green tag hanging off Tiger’s collar caught Det. Masters eye as most cats do not have a collar & tag. The tag had Tigers old veterinarian’s phone number on it and with a little good ole detective work, Det. Masters located the owner, Gonzalez, in Orlando, Florida. According to Gonzalez, she had moved from Lakeland to Orlando a year ago and had left Tiger with her brother temporarily as she moved. This was near west Alamo Drive and South Florida Avenue. Within days, Tiger got out and was nowhere to be found. Heartbroken that her beloved pet was missing, Gonzales looked for days to no avail. Detective Masters contacted Companion Animal Hospital and they loaned him a cat crate so that he could try and capture Tiger. On Thursday, Detective Masters returned to the area and spotted Tiger up near a house. With a little coaxing and offer of comfort and love, Tiger went with Detective Masters and he was transported to Companion Animal Hospital were Dr. Patricia Mattson gave Tiger a wellness examination, checked for any injuries and agreed to keep Tiger overnight. Gonzalez was excited about Tiger being picked up and she returned to Lakeland on Friday to be reunited with him. They both had a lot of catching up to do. Thanks for the compassionate eyes of Detective Masters, Tiger will live out his feline years in the comfort of Gonzalez’s arms. SPCA Florida The Humane Society of Polk County, Inc.

It's Gotta Be Illegal to Be This Cute.... Right? Check out this ADORABLE recruit who rolled up to us today just prior to the 2018 #DrMartinLutherKingJr parade. Officer Daylen, who just turned five years old, was crusin down the road this morning when he stopped by to meet Sergeant Rodriguez and compare cruisers. He was very proud of his fully equipped ride, which he had recently gotten as a birthday gift, that featured lights, sirens and a radio. Sergeant Rodriquez was so impressed he offered young Daylen the opportunity to take a peek inside his SUV, even allowing him to turn on the lights and sirens. We think he was a tad bit excited. (LOL) Once they finished, Officer Daylen was off to find his perfect spot for the parade. During the parade Chief Giddens immediately spotted the car and had to come get a photo with the future officer. He told Daylen to come see him in about 15 years as he is going to make a great officer one day! Daylen says he already knows whay he wants to be when he grows up... yep, you guessed it. He wants to be a police officer. We have no doubt you will do it young man!

What a beautiful (cold... but beautiful) morning for a parade. We had a great time meeting so many people along the route. Thank you so much for your support! Every handshake, hug and request for a photo meant so much! Thanks to all of the City of Lakeland, FL - Government departments, especially City of Lakeland Parks & Recreation, Lakeland Fire Department, and the many many volunteers, community groups and participants that make this a wonderful event. Send us your photos from the parade and we will add them to our album.
