Lost Cat

Just seen the following post on the local Cats Protection Facebook page

Please can everyone in and around Penselwood keep an eye out for a missing Siamese. She is chipped and wearing a pink collar. If you see her please either contact us or her owner on 0146074890 (from tomorrow) or 07716467099. The owner was on holiday in Penselwood so her cat will not know the area.
