A website has been launched following a spate of missing cats in Ipswich.

The Facebook group Ipswich Missing Cats, which has been monitoring the lost moggies across the town, has established the website www.missingcatsanglia.org.uk, allowing residents to report their missing pets, donate to the charity’s fund, provide information about any cats they have found, and see pictures of those currently reported as missing.

Users can report cats across the whole of East Anglia, and the site also offers advice to people on how to keep their pets safe.

Deni Parkes, founder of Ipswich Missing Cats and Missing Cats Anglia, said: “I am very excited to say we are now live with our website, missingcatsanglia.org.uk. You can upload your cat’s info and photo in the ‘missing’ section, as well as pledge towards the reward, and donate. We are covering Anglia so please spread the word. We hope this will bring many missing cats home, and bring leads to see where the missing cats are.”

The website comes after 180 cats have disappeared across Ipswich and Stowmarket, although the latest figure is now at 195. The reward for information which leads to the successful prosecution of a perpetrator stands at £2,000.

The group has also organised a cat chipping event in Gainsborough this weekend alongside the RSPCA.

The event takes place from 10am to 2pm at Gainsborough Sports Centre, and cat-owners will be able to get their pets microchipped for £5 per cat. Pet owners do not need to pre-book, and there is no limit on the amount of cats owners can bring.
