A blind kitten stolen from its owner is home free but the teenager who allegedly took it isn’t.
Ming Pao Daily is reporting that the 19-year-old man was taken from his home by the police who think he has a theft case to answer.
That’s despite the owner’s decision not to press charges as long as the pet was returned.
It was handed to the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals four days after it was taken.
The cat’s owner, a bookstore operator surnamed Chan, collected it shortly after.
Chan said it has minor scratches which might have been self-inflicted, possibly during a struggle with the catnapper.
Police pinned the suspect after a CCTV camera caught him walking away with the cat from Sum Kee Book Store in North Point.
The cat is one of more than 20 Chan keeps in her bookshop.
She found it missing during a morning feed and recalled last seeing the pet when a frequent visitor was holding it.
