As i was entering Danis Supermarket this evening, I quickly noticed a "STOLEN CAT" sign up on the door. Sure enough! it was the beloved longterm black and white little cat that belonged to one of the employees at Danis.
You see her outside the store often,getting affection from many as she waits for her mom to finish work! She has always lived with her mom,all of her life,and i think she worries as her mom has cancer, and it isnt doin her really well as she cries so much over the cat being gone,and that the cat is very old and needs her medication as well.

About 2 weeks ago her cat was taken from the front of the store by someone in a Black Mazda 3,with 4 doors. It has been said that these people live up on Tilton Hill in Pittsfield. when reported to the police they said that it was the animal control officer that needed to handle it.Yet she is on vacation!!
It seems so senseless an act, both by the thief and the police to not help return the cat to its owner...
There is a $100.00$ reward posted for the return of the cat! I hope no one really takes it from this poor woman who just wants her cat back, to be together to the end of thier days!
I plan to contact the newspaper tomorrow to put a copy of the posted stolen cat notice in the paper!
and then post them all over town- even at 96/97 Tilton Hill......
Please help share this news so that this wonderful lady can get her cat back!!!!!

What do you think? I hope you all that read this will post a comment....

You should send this into the Daily Sun as a letter to the editor for printing. I would also contact the Chief of Police in case you were speaking to an officer who's clueless. If no luck, then contact the Selectmen's office to ask about who's responsible for looking into a crime like this. I could be wrong, but I don't think that Animal Control officers have any training in actual police work, especially theft. They're typically volunteers (paid/unpaid?) who have nothing to do with investigation or prosecution. Too bad someone doesn't have time to put their donut down to look into this: I'd be disappointed too.

The facts. The ACO is part time and not certified on theft cases. She did investigate. Not one Pittsfield officer is "clueless" but rather taxed with a number of other calls that might take priority over a "stolen" cat. Agreed that it is a senseless act and agreed sympathy for the owner but an officer cannot just burst into a home on a hunch. And, trust me, these guys don't have a lot of time after all the cuts the selectmen have made to the dept. and it has nothing to do with donuts so find a better cliche.

The FACT is someone ( as you put it ) "stole" the cat. They really did steal someone else's property. The person was told before they scooped up the "stolen cat" that it belongs to someone and that it lives right next door! Whether it was a car, a purse, or a CAT it's still "STOLEN"! Budget cuts or not it was still theft. And if the police officers have enough time to sit around town and chit chat with two cars sitting there burning tax payers gas on a short budget, then they have time to check on a hunch! This cat being "stolen" was like a child being taken in her owners eyes and should be handled appropriately NOT ignored and shrugged off because some senseless few think its "just a cat"

Pitiful. I'm guessing that a case like this would be more gratifying than sitting in a running car for endless hours on the cell phone while waiting for traffic violations and DWI's. Maybe actually help someone when they need it, instead of doing what we all see you doing.

Wouldn't it be fun to use a portable sperm scanner/detector in the police cruisers to see what they've been up to? You know, the UV flashlight-type that shows bodily fluids? Bet even the new cruisers would light up like a christmas tree.

Crybaby is home. Her mommy is very happy to have her back. Now let's talk facts again, yes the hunch was wrong but if work had been done correctly the first week this happened the cat would have been found (no doubt in my mind) not missing for 5 weeks. The license plate was EXACTLY what the police and aco were told the woman had black hair and a black mazda, just as they were told. Everything they told the police was right and they didn't feel like doing anything so then they started blaming out of desperation. Anyway we're all very happy that the "stolen" cat is back home with her mama

I am glad that cry baby is back with her mom. I have seen this cat many times waiting out front of the market. As for the help she didn't get, shame on the police, shame on everyone. We are suppose to be a community yet we get no help from paid officials in this town. The police could of questioned the person who was described, after all it is a crime.
I for one am tired of this town and I am ready to move on. Its high taxes and lack of concern for the residents and lets not go there with the school system has me extremely disappointed.
Good luck to cry baby's mom in her fight with cancer. I hope you beat it! I also hope that you have many good years left with you beautiful cat.

I've seen the cat outside Danis market. It is a nice kitty and let's people pet him. I've seen a black Mazda there before. The owner of him has cancer because I noticed a old coffee can for donation moey for the cancer. The coffee can is on the register on the right near the cigarettes.

Who really cares? Honestly, its just a silly cat. Move on to more important things than a furry animal. If its gone, no one cares...if its found, no one cares.

Well that's a mean thing to say. The owner of the cat has cancer and the cat means a lot to her. So CITIZEN that means YOU don't like animals. Go comment on something in your area.
