A family pet is safe at home after Ottawa police say it was stolen from the porch of a home in the Prince of Wales Drive and Hunt Club Road area.

A man was seen on the home's security camera taking the tabby and leaving in a Nissan Versa on February 9. 

The family reached out on social media in attempts to recover their stolen cat and after they made a police report, Ottawa Police Service Detective Tim McEwen opened an investigation.

Information from the security video and neighbours led to the suspect being identified as an employee of a delivery company. 

Investigators met with the cat-napper at his home on Saturday, April 3, and recovered 'Sunny,' who was safe and healthy.

No charges were laid.
