CAT lover Pam Evans has made a further appeal for her missing cat.
Pam said she Fred had disappeared from her Felpham home for three weeks and she feared for his condition.
“I have been everywhere - town hall, police, street cleaners, vets. I have put out 500 leaflets and then followed them up with door knocking, helped by two young girls from St Wilfrid’s Hospice.
“We have all spent hours all to no avail,” she said.
As reported in the Bognor Regis Observer. Pam last saw her beloved Fred at lunch time on February 18.
She was getting ready to host an afternoon event at her home on Mornington Crescent a few days later.
She raised £140 for the hospice in the latest of her series of charity events.
But her guests who went along to see Fred - as well as enjoy the vintage cream teas, tombola and cakes - were disappointed by his absence.
He has continued to elude Pam and all her efforts to find him. She immediately put up posters and handed out leaflets appealing for information about him.
She said: “My granddaughter is only five and is devastated. I would ask people to look thoroughly for him.
“Fred is a very homely cat and now I feel he is locked in a garage or shed.
“He will run and really hide rather than run out when the garage is opened.
“As Fred can’t meow, he has a blue collar and bell.”
She urged people who had checked their outbuildings once to take another look because his shyness could mean he is well hidden.
Pam brought Fred home from the cat and rabbit centre a year ago. He had previously been in an empty house for three weeks.
Coloured ginger and white, he is about two years old.
Fred is micro-chipped which will read as Banjo, his name from the rescue centre.
She said: “If anyone has stolen him, please bring him back or phone me to say that he is OK. He must be very hungry after three weeks.
“So, if he is being fed we would just like to know he is all right and to finally bring him home.”
