Cat thieves have stolen our cat not once, but twice. Twice! What completely amoral a-holes I have living down the street from me. The first time we heard Cloud meowing from someone's backyard as we patrolled the street, screaming his name. Those neighbors were merely "providing him a warm place to stay." I call bullshit.
This time, we received a call from a local vet when our microchip number came up during a vet check. It seems these latest cat thieves had the good sense to take Cloud for a little check-up prior to "adopting" him. Yeah, you can't exactly "adopt" a cat that's not homeless. We made sure they got a good look at Olie's little face when they returned Cloud. And that $25 bill they ran up at the vet's office? I hope they choke on it.
