A young woman is distraught after her beloved cat went missing in Largs - just months after her other cat disappeared.
Five-year-old Scout, a male tabby, vanished from his home in George Street around February 29, and owner Kate Crawford is anxious for his safe return.
At the end of last year, s1largs reported that Pepper, Kate’s 10-year-old tabby, had gone missing from Eastern Avenue. Unfortunately, the tom was found dead not long afterwards.
Understandably, Kate is worried sick about Scout’s disappearance. She said: “He is my baby. I’ve had him since I was 17.
“I really appreciate if someone has taken him in to care for him but he does have owners who love him very much and he has been in no way abandoned; he has simply lost his way home.”
Kate added that she had recently moved from Eastern Avenue to live with her dad in George Street and was worried that Scout might have tried to go back to the old house. She also suspected that he might have got confused after she went on holiday.
She said: “I went to Canada for two weeks on February 23 and Scout went missing around February 29 and I am very keen to have him back. He has left the new place and come back before. I just think he may have been looking for me.
“As I said before, he is my baby and I would do anything to have him home safe and well. I am distraught that he is out there alone without me.”
Kate described Scout as “a male, neutered tabby cat with a big white chest, chin and face. He is very soft, cuddly and friendly and doesn't wear a collar. He is a bit chubby around the tummy with a belly that hangs quite low.”
