Last week, officers followed up on a case involving a resident finding their cat on their neighbor’s rear deck, locked in a portable carrier, as reported in our Dec. 31 police blotter. The cat’s owner took the cat back, but had no photos or documentation of the incident. Their neighbor contacted police after officers attempted to serve a summons on Dec. 24. She told officers she took the cat because it had been wandering around the neighborhood and she had been feeding it. She told the officer she put the cat in the carrier to keep it safe, and she wanted the cat back. Officers found no grounds for charges. Paperwork was later filed by the cat’s owner for an anti-harassment order against the neighbor.
