FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- The beloved hotel cat that was snatched over the weekend in Fort Collins has been found safe but scared.

Two Armstrong Hotel guests found Oreo on Tuesday crying out from behind an art museum about a block away.

Hotel general manager Nick Gliszinski says Oreo's return marks the end of a citywide search for the famed feline, but authorities are still trying to find the perpetrators.

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan ( ), videos showed two men catnapping Oreo from the hotel lobby on Saturday.

Oreo first came to the hotel in 2004. Since then, she has warmed her way into the hearts of hotel guests and owners.
