A West Norfolk animal charity has appealed for help to get a missing cat home in time for Christmas.

Officials from Cats Protection’s Downham Market Adoption Centre are searching for the owner of a grey and white cat, named Missy, which was found in Wisbech,

Although Misty does have a microchip, which revealed her name and that she used to live in Watlington, the charity says the owner’s details are out of date so they cannot be contacted.

Centre manager Lindsay Tempest said: “We have information that leads us to believe that Misty has been missing from her owners for several years.

“We really hope to be able to reunite Misty with her owners before Christmas, but if this is not possible we will need to find her a new loving home.

"Anyone who is interested in adopting her if her owners don’t come forward is welcome to get in touch.”

Nationally, Cats Protection reunites around 3,000 cats with their owners every year. But the charity's own research suggests that nearly half of the cats that do go missing never return.

Ms Tempest said: “It is very important pet owners keep their details up to date so owners should check their certificate, which will tell them how to do this.”

Anyone who may be able to help is asked to phone 01366 382311 or visit www.downhammarket.cats.org.uk for more details.
