If you have to bike more than 10 minutes to see this car, I'd not bother.
That is a strong theory.

Car breaks down.
They leave in on the side of the road
Someone comes overnight and cuts the cat out
The owner is super pissed and takes pictures to sell the car.

I can't image the cat got stolen while parked behind the gate in the first picture.
