This cat looked like it's holding an assault rifle. Police issued a 'warning.'


Apparently, someone snapped a photo of a cat in Newport holding a tree branch that looks a lot like a firearm, and the local police took to social media to calm the waters.

In a Facebook post, the Newport Police Department said they issued the cat a "verbal warning."
