A Bradley Stoke resident has expressed concern over the “excessive” number of tagged and microchipped cats that appear to be going missing in the Bradley Stoke and Stoke Gifford areas.
The resident, whose current pet ‘Tifa’ went missing last week, said:
“There are always missing posters in and around the area (in the last two months one in Juniper Way, another around the corner in Palmers Leaze and now Tifa) and a Google search reveals a large number of missing cats (many of whom are also chipped and tagged). It seems to me that cats shouldn’t simply vanish without a trace, especially when they are clearly chipped and tagged.”
Tifa: Missing from Palmers Leaze
Tifa is a 2-year-old female cat. She is mainly black with white paws, a white belly and white markings on her face. She has very distinctive long white whiskers and eyebrows and green eyes.
She is very vocal and has a distinctive mew.
She is microchipped, wearing a pink collar with a pink tag containing our details.
Tifa went missing from Palmers Leaze, Bradley Stoke on Friday 17th June and has been known to find herself dry warm places to hide! Could anyone in the area please check sheds, garages, gardens etc?
If anyone does spot her, call 07878 608018 or 07779 069966.
Tifa is much missed and we’d be extremely grateful for her safe return. Many thanks!
The Journal has also received details of a second cat that went missing this month, this time from Ormonds Close …
Charlie: Missing from Ormonds Close
Charlie is 11 months old and has been missing since 8th June.
He is important because he belongs to my one-year-old daughter, they have grown up together and she is missing him desperately.
He sits on the bath panel with her whilst she takes a bath and snuggles up next to her when she is poorly, we are lost without him.
He is a petite ginger cat, 11 months old, last seen wearing a red collar.
He is microchipped.
Anyone with information about Charlie’s whereabouts is asked to contact The Journal.
