Lincoln’s Cameron the Capitol Cat returned after being mistaken for a stray

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Cameron the Capitol Cat is coming home.

On Tuesday, two women took the cat thinking that he was a stray, Lincoln Police say.  State Sen. Anna Wishart said the women were seen by capitol security around 8 p.m.

“He is microchipped, has a loving owner, and a city of adoring fans,” Wishart wrote on Twitter.  “Please bring him back home.”

When the news broke, people on social media pleaded for the cat’s return.  Hours later, Cameron was found.

Capital Humane Society’s Matt Madcharo said Cameron had been placed in an overnight kennel.

The owner has since been notified and is set to pick him up before the humane society closes at 6 p.m.
