Missing Cats Anglia has seen a sharp increase in the rise of missing cats over the past 6 weeks, and the majority of these cats are chipped and neutered, and it is not in their character to have wandered off. All attempts to locate the missing cats has, to date, failed and there have been no sightings.
It is a heart breaking sight seeing so many missing, and knowing the owners are distraught at not knowing where, or what has happened to their loved feline friend, and with the lighter evenings we are seeing fewer cats killed by cars, but clearly more of a target for thieves.
If anyone has any information please email us.
If you have an issue with cats visiting your garden that you are finding increasingly frustrating we ask you contact us for advice. We know not everyone is a cat lover, but would ask the feelings of cat owners, some who solely rely on their cats company to consider any inappropriate action you might consider taking when upset about visiting cats.
If you are feeding a cat that you think might be a stray please use a paper collar ~ these can be found at the RSPCA, or downloaded from our Ipswich Missing Cat page on Facebook.
We have had two reports of recent suspicious behaviour.
The first report of a woman on Tern Road IP2, who was caught by the cats owner putting her male cat into her small, red car. There was another cat also in the car which turned out to be a neighbours cat. The woman released both cats claiming she thought they were strays.
After releasing the cats she proceeded to walk down the road looking into gardens.
The woman is described to be late 30’s, early 40’s, white, with dull blonde hair carrying a purple tote bag with a sequin design on it.
A second case in IP3 Pipers Vale, of a couple, male and female pacing up and down outside an owners house, carrying a large bag, and pointing at her cats this week, and had been seen a month earlier doing the same, and only left when they spotted the owner watching them from her window.
The male is described as a tall grey haired, white older man, and the woman a short, larger white lady with dark brown hair tied in a pony tail.
We feel both cases need to be highlighted, so other cat owners can be vigilant of any suspicious behaviour, and report to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, with our very busy lives it is easy to forget the inquisitive nature of our feline friends ~ please check garages and sheds before locking up behind you. It is possible you have an unknown visitor, that might be there for a good few days, or even weeks, desperate to go home.
