Koko-chan, a cat who helped save a man’s life last year, was recently appointed police chief for a day, and she appeared to not enjoy any of it.
The ceremony was held on April 13, where Koko-chan signed the certificate of recognition with her paw, according to NHK.
Coco-chan, who alerted authorities to an elderly man who had fallen in a ditch and aided in his rescue, received an honorary award from police today in Toyama.
Coco-chan: I will never save another human ever

Koko-chan acted as the head of the department of traffic safety on the day of Japan’s spring traffic safety campaign, Says reported.
She attended a presentation about traffic safety with a group of elementary students, wearing a police officer uniform complete with a tiny hat throughout the day.
Her take on the human ceremony? Not pleased, by the looks of it, and possibly slightly bored.
The ceremony has melted everyone’s hearts.

Some were amazed at Koko-chan’s patience during the ceremony.
Poor kitty! He doesn’t look too happy, but he’s keeping his cool and hoping that there’s a nice chunk of Tuna coming.

That is a seriously tolerant cat. Mine would claw faces off if anyone tried.

Did they injected any sedative to make sure it behaves during the whole process?
