A Portland, Oregon cat owner is filing a lawsuit against her neighbors who she accuses of taking her cat.
In court documents, Donnella Whitacre said her neighbors took her 4-year-old white cat named Merlin while he was roaming the neighborhood. They took him in July and have refused to give him back ever since.
Whitacre said the neighbors fell in love with the cat, and she allowed them to visit Merlin.
When a local news team visited the neighbor’s home, the man who answered the door would not say where Merlin was. He added that Merlin is doing great and he is in the best condition he has ever been in.
Whitacre’s attorney said the neighbors claim that they have spent hundreds of dollars on medical bills for Merlin and they have put a lien on him.
She said that many people, even authorities, have told her to give up the fight for Merlin and just let the neighbors have him, but she stated she will not give up until her cat is back home.
