Blunt but to the point:
Did the person who picked up the cats see something in the home that made it unsafe or was living conditions not up to par? (meaning messy, disjointed?).
Was there something that was said that made the rescue feel that the animals would not be well cared for?
Was there rude communication?

My thoughts are this: there are so many cats in the system. Why would the rescue not want to give the cats back as it would leave them room to place two others?

Something is wrong somewhere, but whatever the reason, someone needs to speak with the OP and say why they feel the need to keep these cats. I think if the OP knows why, then perhaps she will understand.

It's not a great deal of money and I can't imagine with so many cats waiting to get into rescue that this rescue would have to resort to stealing cats. On the other hand, it could be as you stated earlier that the rescue is being so overly controlling about what is acceptable living conditions for pets.
