The Adams County Sheriff's Office is searching for a food delivery driver who they say stole a family's cat while making a late night delivery to a home in Colorado. 

The cat-napper was captured on surveillance at about 10:30 p.m. on March 9th at home in Adams County. The Postmates driver pulled up to the home in a white SUV with unknown plates and dropped off the food delivery before snatching up the family's cat "Simba."

"The woman drops off the delivery and then picks up Simba, gets in her car, and drives away," the sheriff's office wrote in a Facebook post. 

Simba is an 11-month-old orange tabby cat with a pink nose and an “M” above it. He is not microchipped but was wearing a collar tag with a gold circle on it.

The sheriff’s office has been in contact with Postmates, but still doesn't have any information regarding the driver.

The woman is described as a Hispanic female with brown hair in a ponytail. She was wearing a cloth face mask, gray long-sleeve shirt, black pants, and black shoes.

Anyone who recognizes the woman or sees Simba is asked to call the Adams County Sheriff's Office at 303-288-1535.

This is so awful! What a terrible thing to do to the owners, and the poor cat must be confused and stressed. That horrible woman might just dump the cat off somewhere when she decides she doesn’t want it anymore, or wants to get rid of the poor thing before she’s caught. I hope someone will turn her in and the cat is recovered and returned to his family. Poor thing!


Doesn't seem like they like the cat anyway. No chip on an outside cat. Just letting your cat out is a gamble every time. Raccoons will tear them to pieces, literally. Indoor cats live years longer than outdoor cats. But what kind of idiot steals a cat. They are everywhere, free. You don't even have to look. Talk with any group of 5 people or more and someone is trying to get rid of cats.....


We had outdoor cats without chips for years. Seemed to us that the cat was much happier to go outside.

Maybe it's a quality of life vs. quantity of life thing?

At any rate, that was pretty messed up that the delivery driver just grabbed someone's cat. Shouldn't be too hard to find out who she was and get the cat back -- I hope.


Great retort to stpdraisr.
