This is a REPOST from our friends at The Tardis Toms (@TheTardisToms). Our aim is to get this in front of as many people as possible. Please, even if you are in the USA, or one of our European friends – please PLEASE share. I can imagine the distress and worry of each and every pet parent in Ipswich today, so can many of you.

We are sorry to report over 200 cats have gone missing from the Ipswich area.  These are much loved pets, some of which are shown above.  Inevitably their owners are heartbroken. A possible cat serial killer is at large, and the person(s) have to be caught.

A REWARD LEADING TO PROSECUTION IS BEING OFFERED OF £2.000, please contact @missingcatseast if you have any information.

A website has also been launched:

If you live in the #Ipswich area we would recommend keeping your cats in, as this seems the only safe option at the moment.

And we have recently learnt that over 25 cats have now gone missing from the #Bath (PEASEDOWN ST JOHN) area with further reports of disappearances from #Radstock , #Tilehurst (near Reading) and #Lincolnshire.  So it is probably advisable to also keep your cats in if you live in these areas too.  We know this is a contentious issue, but in light of the recent spate of disappearances, it is the obvious solution.  It may be something we all have to consider.

Something sinister is obviously going on, and we are trying to highlight the issue as some owners may not read their local papers so may still be unaware.  BY BEING VIGILANT AND REPORTING ANYTHING SUSPICIOUS STRAIGHTAWAY TO THE POLICE AND RSPCA WE CAN HELP STOP IT.  We need to make the perpetrators realise they WILL be caught if they persist in carrying on.  And hopefully if we can keep this in the public domain it will deter them if they know a surveillance campaign is in operation.

Please take the time and effort to keep retweeting this post and any comments you wish to make under the #IpswichMissingCats hashtag. This could happen to any of us. Our cats lives depend on us, and we will get them the justice they deserve.
