Have you seen this cat? Ipswich family ‘heartbroken’ after Tiddles disappears


A family in Ipswich are pleading with the public to help them find their missing pet cat, Tiddles.


Owners Dominic Baldwin and Amy Clarke were taking the eight-month-old black and white cat to Vets for Pets in Handford Road on May 7 so the cat could be microchipped.

Due to social distancing rules the pair had to wait in the car for a member of staff to collect Tiddles and take him inside.

During the visit Tiddles got spooked and managed to dash from the car park – and has not been seen since.

Now the family, including seven-year-old Nevaeh and three-year-old Preston, are devastated.

“We are all absolutely heartbroken.”

Tiddles is black and white, last seen wearing a blue collar with gems and a bell attached.

His two front paws and back legs are white, with a white patch around his nose and neck.

The family spent day and night searching for Tiddles without luck.

It is believed he could be anywhere in the IP1 area or may have moved further afield.

Ms Clarke asked that people in the area check their gardens and sheds for Tiddles.

Anyone who sees Tiddles should contact Amy Clarke on 07927596459.
