    Kitty kidnappers get community service

    Kitty kidnappers get community service
    Florida couple snatched neighbor's cat and left him in the Everglades

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Maybe Mr. Kibbles will know better the next time he's looking for a litter box.

    Christopher Cortes, 33, and wife Iris Zuckerman, 33, were sentenced Thursday to 100 hours and 50 hours of community service, respectively, for snatching the black cat from their neighbor's home and leaving him in the Everglades.

    Police said Cortes was upset the cat used the back of his pickup truck as a litter box and scratched it.

    Cortes, a firefighter, drove the cat 15 miles into the Everglades and left him there to fend for himself in February 2005, police said. The couple had pleaded no contest to petty theft and declined to comment after the hearing. Police said Cortes told them he took the cat.

    Maggie Leonard, the 12-year-old owner of the cat, said Mr. Kibbles made his way back to his Coconut Creek home two weeks after being left. At first her kitty behaved "weird," but was quickly back to being his own self, she said.
