Local Knockbridge woman Natasha Robinson who reported her beloved cat missing last week has been reunited with her pet
It was thought that the cat was hiding or wandered into a nearby shed or through an open window. Natasha told the Democrat at the time: “My heart is breaking without her, she’s my best friend.”
Tinky is nine years old and Natasha got her as a pet soon after she moved to the Knockbridge area ten years ago.
So she was very distraught when Tinky did not return home last Thursday night.
She enlisted the help of her brother Charles who contacted the Democrat about placing an advertisement for the missing cat in case anyone had seen her. A reward was also offered for her safe return.
However, after being missing for four nights and the worst assumed, Tinky was found late on Monday night much to the joy and relief of her owner.
The poor cat had been accidentally locked in a neighbour’s garage and Natasha had heard some faint meows coming from inside the garage and went to investigate.
Her neighbour had not noticed the new lodger, as due to the recent high winds she had placed the car in the garage and not used it to avoid it getting damaged or scratched. Ironically Tinky has left a few scratches of her own as a result of this logic.Natasha said that she was overjoyed and relieved to have Tinky back safe and sound, and will not be letting her out of her sight any time soon.
