Kitten Thief Strikes Dearborn Backyard

The following information was supplied by the Dearborn Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

Three housecats–two kittens and one adult–were stolen from their owner’s backyard around 2 p.m. Saturday, according to a Dearborn police report.

Two males in their late teens stopped in front of the victim’s house on the 6100 block of Hartwell Street in a light green GMC or Chevrolet minivan, according to a 12-year-old witness. Both suspects exited the car, walked up the cat owner’s driveway and returned to the car with the three cats, she said.

The lost cats include the following: Oreo, a white and black kitten; Boo, a gray and white kitten; and Mich Mich, a gray and white adult cat.

it worries me that three teenagers would steal the cats - i hope they don't hurt them. we never leave our cats outside alone tho if anyone tried to steal my Daisy, they would find themselves in the emergency room when she was done with them.

In the neighborhood where I live, NO cat would allow a human anywhere near close enough for them to get snatched. You see...most of the cats here where I live are either semi, or 100 % feral. I tried to give a handout to an adolecent kitten of one of the pride. It would not accept it. They are used to fresh kills their mother brings to it. About the article. Why would these people try to steal cats? I have heard of stealing pure bred dogs, but not run-of-the-mill cats. Could it be that they had evil reasons?
