Cat Pepsi went missing from family’s back garden

The family of a missing cat have contacted specialist detectives to try and track down their companion animal.

Animal Search were contacted when 11 year old cat, Pepsi, went missing from the family home on December 10.

The team of pet detectives are led by former police officer Tom Watkins, who has over 18 years of investigation experience.

Mr Watkins said: “Most missing pets are found within a few miles of home. The challenge faced by owners, is making sure that as many people as possible know that their pet has gone missing, and encouraging them to be vigilant in keeping an eye out for them.

“Unfortunately, work and family commitments often mean that owners don’t have as much time as they’d like to devote scouring the area looking for their missing pet.”

Pepsi went missing from the family home in Bexley. She is mainly white with some areas of black on her. Her family are desperate to have her back.

Mr Watkins said: “We’ll make sure that we have as much background as possible before we commence our investigation.

“We’ll check details about their normal routine, and their usual patterns of movement in the area.”

Anyone with news, information or who has a sighting of Pepsi can ring the Animal Search UK free confidential helpline on 0800 4 320 340 and quote case ref: 207948 or search on the website for pet ref: ALP207948.
