Your brother is a asshole. Or very desesperate. Or both. Ask him to refund your ticket or sue him. He stole your passport so you would pay for his cat's surgery, if you let him get away with it, he can turn worse in the future. And keep your most important belongings (ID papers, car papers ...) locked somehere your brother can't reach. Sorry about your trip.
Reporting the passport stolen could be a huge hassle. First of all, it is a federal crime to report it stolen. Once you've reported it stolen, it cannot be used again no matter the circumstances. A new passport must be ordered, at a cost (in the USA) of $145. The brother would be charged with anything from attempted fraud to terrorism with a lot of other posisble charges in between. Sounds like a whole lot of bother for the brothers actions, which, BTW, were despicable. Just take him out in the country, beat the sh!t out of him, and dump him!
You can't get a cash refund. You still have credit with the airline minus an exorbitant "change fee." Even with the reduced balance, you should be able to buy your brother's cat a one-way ticket to hell.
I'd say that your brother sounds like a narcissistic asshole and needs to be reminded (very firmly and without leaving obvious bruises) that what you do with your life is not up to him to dictate and then take your money back from his wallet. if he refuses to pony up, sue his ass.
