  • So the alleged thief has no idea what happened to the kittens he allegedly stole?

  • Break him on the wheel.

  • Oh geeze, I really hope they find those kittens and he didn’t do something awful to them. :/

  • Good news and bad news

  • Keep checking craigslist!

    • I Dont Get It

      Sadly, no doubt they were on the street once the perp realized he had feed them and you know, provide a litter box.

      • HaileUnlikely

        That is probably a second-best-case scenario. Best-case scenario, he gave them to his girlfriend or his mom or something, and they’re taking good care of the kittens. Worst case scenario: food and litter box might have been irrelevant to his intentions all along.

  • It would be helpful if the police at least identified where the suspect lives so that in the event he let the cats outside we could help look for them.
    It is going to be very cold these next few nights.

  • “The only person that is to blame for a home invasion, a mid-gas-pumping car theft, or an abduction of a child walking alone, is the criminal and not the homeowner, driver or parent; no matter if we leave our doors open, or allow our children to walk alone to the park.”

    Wow. We’ve actually gotten to the point where people are seriously saying “don’t protect yourself, we need to teach criminals not to crime!”

    You may have seen a similarly ridiculous concept expressed that stereotypes men.

  • Oh stop. This is stupid fear-mongering. It is much easier – and sensible – to steal a few steaks from Safeway to feed a Pitbull. Two little kittens have very little- maybe 8 oz. – of useful meat between them. This just seems like a sad and stupid guy who probably stole them for a child/mom/girlfriend.

    Hopefully there are some smart/compassionate/savvy cops working with him to find the kittens and sort his sorry-ass life out without abusive incarceration.
