How to Get Your Cat Back from a Child
1You don't want to go up to a child and get the wrong one.
2Maybe they thought that the cat didn't have an owner or maybe that they could get it for you. (If they're extra nice, they also might give you a gift to say sorry)
3Say to the child how sad you feel, the child might confess of guiltiness.
4For example, get a voice recorder and put it near the child without letting the child know, then say you will give the person who has it a lot of money and the person might confess. Later, if the child gives you the cat and his/her parents assumes you stole it and it had the police involved, show the police the voice recorder and the child might say that he/she is responsible for the stealing in the voice recorder.
5Make sure not to believe everything the child says.
