The Silverwood Drive resident said his cat was an outdoor car and could be gone for long periods of time. He said he wasn’t concerned if someone wanted to care for the cat, but wanted to make sure the cat was ok. On a tip from a neighbor, police followed up with a resident of Laurel Hill Road, who looked at a photo of the orange tabby and said that was his son’s new cat. They had decided to care for the cat after it would not leave the premises. The Silverwood Drive man, upon hearing this, said he was happy to hear the cat was fine.
