Paying off a parking ticket is not usually a fun activity — so the Muncie, Indiana police department came up with a pretty heartwarming incentive to get people to finally pay up. For a few days earlier this month, Muncie, Indiana residents could pay off their parking tickets by donating cat supplies to the local animal shelter, Muncie Animal Care & Services.

On July 15, the Muncie Police Department announced the promotion in a Facebook livestream, which has since been viewed more than 35,000 times. In the video, members of the police department and volunteers at the animal shelter cuddled up with a few kittens, and they announced that from July 15 through July 19, anyone with a parking ticket could donate cat food or cat litter (costing the same value as their parking ticket) to the shelter, and the police would waive their ticket. So instead of that $25 going towards the city, it will be going towards helping the shelter's furry residents.
