“It seems incredible that so many cats could simply disappear. They go out and don’t come back. If 108 cats have gone missing, where are the bodies? There are no traces, no sightings, nothing. They just vanished.”
"The Facebook group “Ipswich Missing Cats” last week, has already received 108 reports of disappearances – the majority of which happened in the past month. The mass disappearances coupled with cruel stories of torture have prompted pet owners to keep their cats on lockdown. The site has been inundated by stories of pets vanishing without a trace, others being found dead and buried, and evidence of torture among some of those returning. One pet owner said one of her cats had suffered a catalogue of cruel injuries after disappearing on Sunday evening. “When he came back he was limping, he was covered in faeces and he was absolutely terrified, his whiskers had been burned, there was a large chunk of fur that seemed to have been ripped out and when I took him to the vets they said it looked like he had been kicked around like a football. Other group members had been forced to put their cat down after returning with serious injuries. One owner lost all three of his pets in a single week."
The disappearances began at the beginning of the year but have markedly increased in recent months, the owners said. David Smith, the co-ordinator of Cats Protection’s Ipswich branch, said:
"We hear of cases of cats going missing or being mistreated from time to time but to hear of this number of cats going missing in such a short space of time is astonishing."
Ben Gummer, MP for Ipswich said he was “alarmed” at the scale of the problem. He said:
“I am alarmed at the news that over one hundred cats have gone missing in my constituency in such a short space of time. There must be someone who knows what’s going on”.
Cats are not the easiest animal to catch and keep hold of. Even when tapped in a cage the average cat will make a lot of noise in its frantic effort to escape. Because cats do not wander too far from home the culprit must be close. Does anyone have security cameras or use a tracking device?
It is presumed that the missing and injured cats have been stolen by humans. For a problem this serious maybe people should be thinking outside the square and start employing ideas of the same value to solve it. Remember that what is reflected here is the REPORTED number of missing cats. In actuality the number is likely to be much higher. Has anyone thought about using a pet psychic to tune into one of the returned cats? What I have read here sends chills through my bones. Ipswich residents please get together and do your best to get to the bottom of this distressing issue.
One thing stands out that is different from the usual clusters of cat disappearances.
Now some of the missing cats are coming home. From where?
NOTE - As of 15th October 2014 a further 52 cats were reported on top of the 108 that police were already aware of. The scope of this problem is clearly beyond that of a single culprit.
Pea Horsley, animal communicator, says that a request for communication would need to come directly from one of the guardians of the cats that have returned home, if any would like to do this then please visit the website for details of the information Pea will need to connect. www.animalthoughts.com
