This is Mitzie.
We adopted her Spring of 2018 when my 27-year-old cat died. Mitzie was just a couple of months old. She was happy, loved; well cared for and treasured. She disappeared 2 years ago today. It was a fine day but a cold night and dark as it is now. She had lost her collar and it’s possible someone thought she was stray and has been feeding her or caring for her. It has been a particularly sad searching with very many tears as you may imagine. Please if you can, think about what you were doing a year ago today. The girls next door were having turf laid for a new lawn. I wonder what you were doing. I was stuck in the hospital all day until my return at 9 at night and feel so terribly guilty. Mitzie only usually went a couple of houses up the lane if that and no further but perhaps this day was different for some reason and she became lost. Cats don’t always have great homing instincts but they are territorial. Perhaps she got into a fight with another cat? Perhaps something happened to disorientate her. Perhaps she is no longer with us although she was chipped and her body has not been reported – the council scan – nor has anyone reported finding a dead cat at that time. So is there every reason to believe she is still alive and that means searching. From the moment I wake until I go to bed I search all the sites – deceased cats lost found stolen cats, cats from Rutland, cats from Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and the world! Thousands of cats. I track them all as they are, like Mitzie, lost and not found until they are found through their chips, or lost and found having gone over the rainbow bridge. As well as the loss of my own cat, daily I experience the anguish and sadness of hundreds of other people who are also trying to find their cats. Amazingly, most of them do.
Statistically, it is likely she is still in the village although we search nationally because by now she could be anywhere. It is because of that we would like to ask again if any of you have any knowledge at all of her whereabouts.
She is a distinctive cat and is chipped and spayed. She has a centre black pad under a rear paw; she has a pink nose and white fur up between her eyes to a delicious patch of orange. She has a white bib and white paws. She’s a tiger tortie so a little unusual. She is chatty. She likes to sit by the sink and drink water from the tap. She has a lot of little quirks and we would love to have her back in our lives again.
Two years is much too long to be sad. You can help. Have you seen her anywhere? Take a close look at her pictures and her description. Maybe you have. She could be anywhere in the village – if she is in the village – or she could be in a stable or outbuilding or cellar or she could be anyway, in fact somewhere near you. If you find a cat or have seen a cat that looks like Mitzie please take her to a vet to be scanned or call me to come and have a look. The heartache of this loss is truly awful. I’m offering a large cash reward. No questions asked. I just want to be reunited with a much-loved pet and member of our family.
