A CONCERNED pet owner is appealing for information after he cat went missing in Chester almost a week ago.
Owner Gemma Droughton, of Pine Grove, Hoole, is hoping her male tabby, called ‘Bazza’, will be returned as he needed veterinary treatment at the time of his disappearance.
Bazza is described as being brown/black, quite small but stocky, between eight and nine years old with a bushy tail. He was wearing red/black collar bearing the words ‘stay well’.
He went missing during the evening of Tuesday, March 16, and was suffering from a “runny eye”.
Miss Droughton, who has searched gardens and local areas, said she was worried about Bazza’s welfare and that show would be grateful for any public assistance.
“He is usually in for at least three meals a day and spends most of his time cat-napping on our bed or next to the catnip in the front garden so this is very out of character for him,” she said.
“There have been reports of two cars in the area around the time he disappeared, a black VW Golf and a dark blue/green Vauxhall Vectra. If anyone in those cars, or anyone else who may have seen him, has details of Bazza’s whereabouts I would be most grateful.
“The local vets have his picture and details but it’s possible he has been picked up and taken further afield.
“He needs veterinary care for an eye infection so I am anxious to get him back as soon as possible. He is microchipped which any vet will be able to scan to check his identity.”
Anyone who may have information about Bazza can contact The Chronicle on 01244 606413.
