WITH just one of his nine lives remaining, Pippin the cat has gone out for one more adventure. This time though, he has not returned home.

The black-and-white cat went missing from his home in Scholar's Close, Manea, on July 21.

Pippin's owner Kerrie Evans said: "We all know cats have nine lives, and we believe Pippin is on his last one so he'll need all the help he can get."

His nine lives have slowly eroded away over the past few years, with incidents including a run-in with another cat which caused immense damage to his right eye.

Mrs Evans said: "After many trips to Cambridge University Veterinary School, they are still baffled as to why he can still use an eye which is so badly damaged, but causes him no pain."

One of Pippin's adventures also took him to Tipp's End, six miles away from Manea, when his eye caused a man take him to a veterinary surgery. Mrs Evans was contacted after his microchip was scanned.

Mrs Evans said: "His nine lives have slowly eroded away over the past few years, including a run-in with a cat which caused immense damage to his right eye.

"Among the usual near misses with passing traffic and following other cats into their homes at night, he does get up to quite a lot of mischief."

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Pippin should call the Cambs Times news desk on 01354 652621.
