April 10, 2:54 p.m.

A man whose cat went missing was convinced that someone stole the animal—without really having reason—according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

The cat's owner called sheriff's deputies to say his cat went missing when he moved out of a residence—and he was certain that one of his neighbors had stolen it because someone had spotted it in the alley near that neighbor's house.

Three different deputies indulged him and got involved in the case, speaking with three different people living in the reportee's former neighborhood. But neither the cat nor any evidence that it had actually been stolen were found.

One deputy closed the case by explaining to the cat's owner that if he actually saw someone with his cat, he could call the Sheriff's Department again with theft report. He reminded the man, "Cats do wander."
