A YORKSHIRE woman has made a plea for readers to look out for her missing pet cat Freddie who could have made the 200 mile journey to the Fens inside the boot of a neighbour's car.

Rosemary Gunn believes Freddie may have accidentally arrived in Whittlesey after her former neighbour moved here.

Mrs Gunn, from Filey near Scarborough, lost her pet cat Freddie on April 4 and thinks he may have jumped into her former neighbour's car when he moved to Whittlesey.

"This is my last resort to find him," said Mrs Gunn. "We have looked everywhere for him without success.

"My former neighbour James Coldbeck moved to Whittlesey and came back to clear his garage. Freddie has not been seen since and, if he was here, I think he would have been found by now.

"I have spoken to James and he has not seen him, but he could have just jumped out. But James has been asking people to keep a lookout."

Mrs Gunn said it was not the first time Freddie has gone missing by jumping into a car. Last year Freddie was taken to a Morrisons store 10 miles away from Filey and was found after posters were hung up around the area.

Freddie is about 20 months old and is a brown tabby/Havana cross. He has blue eyes, is quite slim and has a stripy tail, as well as pointed ears and a fairly pointed face.

Mrs Gunn said: "He responds to his name and if very friendly - and that's how he gets into scrapes like this."
