Thanks to your help, Cuddlebutt has been located safe and sound and is with TCSO Deputies. He will be reunited with his humans shortly.
Oh yeah, the Stolen Nissan Pathfinder was also recovered, but we all know what everyone was really concerned about.
Investigators have possible identities of the two suspects and are continuing the investigation. Arrests are expected soon. We will update when that occurs.

According to TCSO Corporal Chris Barnett, Cuddlebutt does indeed live up to his name, and he provided many kisses and hugs to Deputy Chris Rondeau.
“When we got to him in the car, he needed to urinate badly, that was the first thing he did when he was released from the vehicle,” said Corporal Barnett. “Then he drank all of the water from my water bottle. Then he thanked us. He is definitely a lover.”
