Maldon district: Missing cats spark snatching concerns
An alarmingly high number of cats have gone missing across the Dengie, sparking fears a cat-snatcher may be on the loose.
Concerned residents have been posting about their missing cats on Facebook, with some suggesting it might be more than just a coincidence.
Over one weekend four cats went missing in the Dengie area.
Glyness Rowell, of Southminster, said: “Four cats went missing this weekend it sounds awfully weird don’t you think?”
Nikki Poyntz, 42, of Hall Road, Asheldham, has been missing her ginger and white domestic cat, Henry, for three weeks.
