“Better hide your cats ... back at it again,” a caption in the TikTok video, obtained by 7NEWS, shows.
An earlier video by the same TikTok account shows a person taking another cat in broad daylight.
“F*** I love kidnapping cats,” a caption reads.
During both incidents, laughter can be heard in the background.
Garfield’s owner Steph Sione has concerns for her pet’s welfare, demanding the thieves “tell us where he is”.
“The look on his face ... I just want him home,” she told 7NEWS, through tears.
“It was heartbreaking. That’s my baby.
“He didn’t do anything to be manhandled the way he was.”
Sione said the cat thieves appear to be youths.
“Some kids think it’s funny to go around stealing people’s pets. Why are you doing this?” she said.
“People work hard for their things. People take care of their animals.
“And these kids think they can come and take it — for what?
“Something has to do done about this.”
