My cat was being held for me by my friend who ended up letting her neighbor hold on to her for a few days because she got scratched in her face. Then the neighbor tried saying that it was her cat that she held onto it for almost a month when my friend did not have the cat for a month she only had her for at least 5 days. Now the lady says that she gave my cat away to her daughter who gave it to her boyfriend. The daughter's boyfriend is starting to tell me I'm not getting my cat back they refuse to let me get her back. She's only a kitten and I don't know how to get her back. Please help.
People who believe their animal is being wrongfully withheld can commence a civil lawsuit (replevin action) to try to get the animal returned and can contact the police (although the police tend not to get involved in pet custody disputes).
