Chantelle Lott, 16, found out that her cat Blue was taken on Monday February 21 at 11.30am after checking CCTV around the neighbourhood.

"The boy is my life," she said, having spent several days checking cameras locally.

"He’s always there to comfort me and my family," she added, saying that her mum has had him for 17 or 18 years.

"I’ve grown up with him, so for someone to take him away like that has left a big hole in the family.

"He’s not like a normal cat, he’s like a baby. I can walk around the house with him on my shoulder and he wouldn’t move a muscle."
