The women are described as white and between 30 and 40 years of age.

Pc Sandra Wiggins from Suffolk Police said: "This has been a very distressing time for the lady in question. Spice was a present from her daughter who bought it for her after her previous cat died of cancer. She is particularly concerned as Spice is primarily a housecat and only goes outdoors with her owner.
