UPDATE: Here’s video from the Checkpoint programme on National Radio, 12 July 2016:

Ashleigh Hicks’ cat Moses has been missing since the end of January. After posting his disappearance on Facebook, Ms Hicks found that up to 50 cats have disappeared in Timaru in the past few months. She’s asking the Police to investigate.

We don’t know the circumstances, but “disappearance” is certainly a risk with roaming cats – whether they get lost, are stolen or die in a road far from home.

We hope all these cats are OK and will eventually find their way home – and that their owners will take measures to keep them safe at home.
