UPDATE FEBRUARY 18, 2019 Ashes made it home. No details but it was posted on the Facebook thread. The bird is still missing.
This is a stolen pet alert. A beloved store cat named Ashes as well as a parrot were taken from Diane’s Pet Center, 3001 Perkiomen Avenue in Reading, Pennsylvania.
Central Berks Regional Police posted the following on their Facebook community page
“On the morning of Sunday, 2/17/19 between 3AM and 3:45AM, subjects in a small silver vehicle (possibly a BMW) were observed backing into the front door of Diane’s Pet Center, 3001 Perkiomen Ave. It was discovered that the persons involved had then forced the door open and removed a green and red parrot with a white cap in its white cage – as well as “Ashes”, the store’s beloved pet cat (shown here). If anyone can provide any information, please contact Ofc. Matthew Rissmiller or Det. Sgt. Deron Manndel at 610-779-1100, or via Berks Radio at 610-655-4911.”
Let’s get this information out there so these animals can be returned. Poor Ashes must be terrified!
