|There are state laws and often times there are conflicting local/county ordinances. An explanation of actions should be sufficient to have the cat returned. After looking over the state law from the state indicated in the question, there doesn't seem to be anything that gives any animal control authority to remove a cat from someone's home except in the event of abuse TO the cat!
Our Mommy got bit on the arm by another kitty and had to go to the hospital (became infected). She told them the truth that she was bitten by a cat but didn't tell them where that kitty lived. We think the kitty smelled our scents on her arm and got excited and bit her. Now, a month later, that kitty loves our Mama and cuddles with her whenever she goes to visit where he lives. Rule of thumb: Less information volunteered, the better.
