Woman 'thrilled to pieces' as missing cat found up tree
A woman is “thrilled to pieces” after her cat was found up a tree five days after she reported it missing.
Sheila Benson, of Red Road, Borehamwood, was distraught when her Pedigree moggy, Snowy, disappeared from her home last Saturday morning.
She believed a cat-napper was at large after finding out her neighbour’s Pedigree tabby kitten, Freddie, had vanished on the same day.
But today a tree surgeon spotted one-year-old Snowy up a tree in Red Road.
Mrs Benson, who runs a property management company from home, said: “We couldn’t believe it. I’ve never seen Snowy climb anything before – I think he was frightened."
Mrs Benson had alerted the police to the potential theft, claiming Snowy’s disappearance was “out of character”.
She said: "I still think he could have been taken and ran away and got frightened because my neighbour's kitten is still missing."
“He’s lost weight but he’s okay. We’re delighted he’s back – we're thrilled to pieces.”
