A stolen kitten that captured the hearts of Waterloo Region has been found, is safe, and will make a full recovery.
As local cat rescue agency, Pet Patrol, said on a social media post, Wednesday, “Crosby’s big adventure has been a whirlwind.”
The post said the 10-week old kitten lost a bit of weight, and caught a cold, but was going for a check-up.
Regional Police sent out their own statement stating they were told by the agency the kitten required minimal medical attention and is expected to make a full recovery.
Police said they were told “a member of the community had contacted [Pet Patrol] and returned the kitten.”
Crosby was allegedly stolen right out of his crate at the Pet Valu store in Waterloo at Weber Street North and Northfield Drive on the evening of November 24.
Staff tried to chase the man down but he got away.
A 58-year-old Waterloo male was later arrested and charged with theft under $5,000.
Pet Patrol thanked everyone who shared Crosby’s story on their own socials, handed out flyers, or made a donation.
The agency wrote, “We are all relieved and looking forward to seeing Crosby’s bright future.”
