It' a Christmas miracle!
That adorable two-month-old Siamese kitten who was snatched from the city's animal shelter has been found. KTVU delivered the great news this morning, saying the stolen kitty, who goes by Arizona, is headed back home with her adopted family, and is reportedly looking forward to seeing what's under the tree.
Deb Campbell, spokeswoman for the San Francisco Animal Care & Control, told the news station that a hotel manager found Arizona after recognizing her from news reports. He called the shelter and the cat is waiting to be returned to her happy family.
On Thursday, the newly adopted kitten was waiting to be spayed at the shelter before heading home with her new family when she was stolen. The Animal Care & Control released video surveillance showing two women who were at the scene of the catnapping.
Here they are:
