Cat abandoned in Walmart parking lot

Authorities are looking for a woman they say abandoned a cat in a department store shopping cart.

Loudoun County Animal Services received a call from a Walmart store on Dulles Crossing Plaza in Sterling Wednesday afternoon.

There they found a brown cat in a shopping cart in the parking lot of the store. With the cat was a bag of food, a bowl, and a pillow.

Security video shows a silver, 4-door, SUV pull into the parking lot.

A woman exited the vehicle holding the cat.
