On Wednesday evening, Samuel Forest Evertson let his 8-year-old cat, Mo, onto the porch for some fresh air. Mo is mainly an indoor cat, but Evertson has always felt comfortable indulging Mo's desire to be outside when he can keep tabs on him. But on this day, the unthinkable happened.
Evertson, who was just steps away inside, received an alert on his phone that his security camera had picked up activity on his porch. Upon reviewing the footage, he realized what had just happened.
A stranger had tried to kidnap his cat and carry him to an awaiting getaway car — but thankfully, Mo was able to escape just in time.
