And Then the Salem Police Tweeted, “Salem Police Would Appreciate Everyone Moving Their Cats …..

SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS – Salem is a city which is unafraid to embrace its mystical history, with a downtown thoroughfare full of psychics and gift shops like Crow Haven Corner, and historical tours chronicling the Salem witch trials from companies such as Black Cat Tours.

So it wasn’t completely shocking when, for a brief moment the morning following the recent snowfall, it appeared the city had an excess amount of cats, thanks to an errant tweet from the Salem Police Department.

While attempting to inform residents that the city was about to end the snow-fueled parking ban at 10 a.m. and people needed to move their cars, the Salem Police fell victim to the modern black magic known as “auto-correct.”

Naturally, the jokes poured in.
