The city's Animal Care & Control needs your help tracking down a two-month-old kitty that was snatched from the city's shelter yesterday afternoon.

The newly adopted kitten was waiting to be spayed before going home for the holidays when someone inside the facility swiped the kitten at about 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Authorities have surveillance videos showing two women who were present at the time of the catnapping.

Here are the videos:

The kitten, whose name is Arizona, is described as having a distinctive Siamese lynx point coat with a dark nose and pale-blue eyes. She weighs about two pounds and is microchipped, which means the shelter can easily verify her identity.

The women pictured in the videos above are urged to contact the shelter right this minute. If anyone has information about the identity of the two women, they are also encouraged to call Animal Care & Control's emergency dispatch line at 554-9400 right this minute.
