A teary Murrow woman says she has struggled to sleep at night ever since her beloved cat, Genie, went missing 14 days ago.

Eileen Sattin has been tirelessly searching the areas around Eastwood Avenue - sometimes twice a day - after her furry friend “vanished” on September 14.

“I took Genie to Best Friends Pets March on Upwell Road because, unfortunately, she has conjunctivitis.

“After seeing her, the vet put Genie back into the cat box. I took the box back to the car and suddenly the weight changed.

“The box jerked quickly and then she completely vanished.

“I think she had jumped out and ran over the fence at Eastwood Avenue.”

Since the disappearance, Eileen has travelled to the area every day – sometimes twice – in search of finding her best friend, who she has been with for just over a year.

“It’s the not knowing what’s happened to her that’s the worst thing.

“She always rushes in when it rains and she’s never been out alone at night before.

“I really feel for her. I just want to know what’s happened to her because that would give me some closure.”

• Genie, aged two, is ginger with a partially white face and white bib. She has four white feet, with two short socks at the front and two long socks at the back. Her distinguishing feature is a circle of ginger close to her nose on the left hand side.
