Cramlington’s Missing Cats
July 14, 2021
An increase in the number of cats going missing in Cramlington is concerning a local animal welfare officer.
The most affected locality is the Collingwood Grange area of town.
Northumberland County Council’s Animal Welfare Officer Gemma Fowle explains: “We now have more than fifteen cases. We just do not know what is happening to these cats. No bodies have been found, they have just vanished, which is very distressing for their owners and the increase in incidents is worrying,”
“One family have lost two cats in the last few months. They have had no updates or sightings at all. It’s very strange.“
“Our Neighbourhood Services Operatives are on alert and have been asked to report any concerns or sightings relating to animal welfare.”
“I am also asking members of the public to be on the lookout for any unusual behaviour or an increase in sightings of cats at a particular property.”
“If you have anything to report please get in touch with Animal Welfare on 0345 600 6400 or via the Northumberland County Council website.”
“I would also ask cat owners to remember that if your pet goes missing, update your microchip details and log it as lost with animal welfare at NCC.”
