Update newsletter preferences. I need an update when the rat is found to mend my broken heart. How could someone do this? Only a truly heartless person could steal a beloved pet. Shame on whoever did this. We know who took Lucy We understand you may have thought Lucy was abandoned or needed help. Please just call us and we will meet you somewhere, collect Lucy and return her to her loving owner, Chris.
The police have returned her unharmed. The story shared is that Chris had gone to the bathroom and during this time a woman walked past who was not a local, saw the domestic rat and feared it was abandoned. She believed she was rescuing it and took it home and cared for it. Obviously at some point she has become aware of her mistake and contacted police. Happy ending this time around with no apparent malice involved. Surely though if she had just made an enquiry in the closest shop as Chris obviously has a table and chair set up they could have let her know Lucy's story.
Whether she is lying about her intentions or not Chris has been reunited with Lucy. They found her! The police and community worked together and bought Lucy back to her human- friend. I had a pet rat when I was little and he was so sweet and smart.

He doesn't even want to press charges he just wants her back. Someone should post a reward for it in hopes the scumbag comes forward. Rats are underrated, but who would actually think stealing one was worth it? This poor man I hope he gets Lucy back :. It's not about the rat. Speaking from experience, when you're homeless some people just take utter delight in stealing or destroying every meagre possession you have. I once returned to my hideout where I kept my tent neatly folded and stashed, only to find while trying to pitch it that some hilarious people had carefully and discreetly slit the tent in dozens of places, then put it back in my hiding place.

Lucy was returned to Chris. Apparently, Chris left to go to the bathroom and a lady saw Lucy all alone and thought she was abandoned. She took Lucy home to care for her. This just infuriates me!
