Someone stole my cat!?

Someone stole my cat!?

Me and my boyfriend got a cat together and it was living at his house as an outdoor cat. He did have the choice of living inside, but he chose outside. I would bring him inside at night and he would just sit at the door meowing to be let back out. He would leave the house for a week at a time but would always come back. About a month ago we noticed he had been missing for awhile, Even thought he was missing we still put food out everyday for him. They have 25 acres of land but yet everyday after work (6am-6pm) my boyfriend would go out looking for him. We then found out my boyfriends brothers girlfriend (she's 16) and her mom took the cat from my boyfriends backyard without telling anyone because it was weak and had fleas. We knew it had fleas and had been giving him medication for it. And it was weak because he had left, on his own choice, awhile ago and probably didn't eat much. They live in the country and there's a house down the road with 20+ cats so thats where he must of gotten the fleas from. Since then we've found out they took him to the vet for shots and got him fixed. The only reason they got him fixed is because they already have 10+ cats and didn't want to end up with kittens. We've contacted her, and her parents by the phone, email, text messages and even talked to the girl in person saying we want our cat back but no reply! What can we do to get him back? I have written proof from the girl saying she took the cat and I have pictures of me and the cat together. Also the cat had a collar on him with his name and my boyfriends phone number. We care deeply about out cat, Mr.Eves. And did not neglect him! Also, my boyfriends mom is a dog breeder. Our cat and all the dogs would play together. She was outside 3 times a day to make sure the cat and dog had food/water and took them for walks. How is that neglect?

It IS petty theft but do you really want the hassle of small claims court over a cat? I love animals and all but you have to calculate how much stress you're willing to bring upon yourself.

So you deleted your previous question after all 8 people that answered it said that you were wrong and neglected the cat? You are still wrong. A male cat that is not neutered will wander and will get fleas and diseases. He will get in fights and end up with abscesses and other wounds. He will father dozens of homeless kittens. He will not eat well and he will become sick and weak. Cats that are properly cared for are spayed or neutered. If you had done that, the cat would stay home and would not become "weak". You did not care for the cat properly. No matter how many times you ask, the answer's the same. You can sue them for the value of the cat. But no court will order the cat to be returned to you. And no police department will bother with this.

Well, you DID neglect your cat. YOU stated the cat has fleas and is weak, well, YOU should have taken the cat to the vet instead of allowing it outside all the time. I am assuming that YOU did not even take the cat to get his shots? (neglect) That cat is better off where it is. You better be glad that they did not call animal control on you for neglecting the cat. However, you can take them to small claims court. BUT, be prepared to possibly get into trouble because of neglect. You can say whatever you want about not neglecting your cat and caring deeply about him. Well, if it was all true, you would have taken the cat to the vet, not allow the cat outside, etc.!
