SALEM, Ore. (KOIN) — A 3-footed kitten was stolen from an animal shelter on Monday.

The kitten was affectionately named Forrest Gump by workers at Salem Friends of Felines shelter, where he, his siblings and his mother were left at the backdoor about a month ago.

He even had a family who was interested in adopting him and had gone through the pre-adoption process when the thief took him.

“I just hope they bring him back. I mean he’s still on meds, he’s loved here,” Terri Smith with the shelter told KOIN 6.

Forrest Gump is missing his back left foot and is in need of medication.

“If someone had just taken a black kitten from here it would be very hard for us to identify, but somebody’s going to identify that there’s a kitten with a foot missing,” Melinda Rosso with the shelter said.
