The city of Brentwood is asking for the community’s help with finding a stolen cat.
For more than 20 years, the Cat in the Hat has been a holiday fixture at the Christmas tree located at John P. Holt Brentwood Library. On Saturday night around 10 p.m., video surveillance shows a small group of people stealing the cat and the books he sat upon.
The Cat in the Hat was handmade years ago by a local artist, valued at $2,500, and is a community treasure.
Video shows two vehicles — a silver or gray Subaru Outback and a white extended cab pickup truck — suspected in the theft.
If you know anything about who may have taken the cat, email email@example.com or call at 615-371-2275.
