It Was a Bad Day For a Cat Owner in Westport
It was a bad for a cat owner in Westport, not only did she see a bird, she had her cat allegedly stolen by one of her neighbors.
The incident occurred in Westport this past Friday, January 20, 2023. According to the Westport Police Department, a neighbor called in a complaint against Westport resident James Doyle, alleging that Doyle had stolen her cat. Upon further investigation, officers found that Doyle had allegedly been seen trying to lure her cat into his residence on numerous occasions, and had repeatedly been told not to it. The complainant's neighbors allegedly witnesses another attempt by Doyle to lure the cat inside his residence this past Friday, and alerted the complainant.
It didn't go well after that. After being alerted by her neighbors of Doyle's latest alleged lure attempt, the complainant again told him to stop. Unlike my reasonable neighbor, Doyle allegedly picked up the cat, gave the complainant the middle finger, and took the cat into his residence.
Responding officers found Doyle had already released the cat, and arrested him for breach of peace. Doyle was released on a $1,000 bond, and is due to appear in Stamford Superior Court on January 31, 2023.
I had a similar problem with a neighbor in Waterbury, who tried to be a bit too friendly with our dog - feeding him bacon, etc. We didn't agree with his behavior, so we had to have an uncomfortable conversation to end our situation. Luckily our neighbor was more agreeable than Doyle allegedly was.
