A FIVE-YEAR-OLD girl who suffers from an unusual illness has been left devastated by the loss of her pet cat Bex.
Bex, seven-years-old with short black hair, has been missing since September 17 from his home in Hood Drive, Great Blakenham near Ipswich. He is microchipped and was last seen wearing a blue collar with a bell on it.
Karen Jones, Ellisa's mother, said: “My daughter has lost not just a cat, but her best friend. She has not been able to eat normally since she was nine-months-old and is under Great Ormond Street Hospital where she has been diagnosed with a chromosome translocation.
“She is fed by a pump into her tummy and although she has as normal a life as possible, is frail compared to other kids.
“When Ellisa is ill she has a best friend who never leaves her side, Bex. He will sit on her bed all the while when she is ill, he won't eat or leave for comfort breaks and just lies with her and licks her face when we let him.
“Ellisa has been crying herself to sleep. It is really breaking my heart, as I love him too, to see my daughter without her feline carer.”
