Billie came to live with my aunt at Clacton at about six months old. When she died, her sister took her in, and she lived at Manor Park, London. Billie went missing for about four days once, and we found her in the forest and she had hurt her paw. This aunt died in January 2006, so I took on Billie. My old cat, Bunny, used to 'have' a go at her, but they seemed to be used to each other recently.

Billie always came in for her food, but basically she was an outside cat, and was out most of the day.
She has been in during the winter each night, and loved her little warm bed. She got herself shut in a neighbour's shed recently, and has been seen in his garden, which is quite overgrown. I have a fence which backs onto a service road, and there are garages there. I have been round there to look about eight times in case she was shut in,

She had arthritis in her knees, and the vet thought she may have been injured as a kitten. She had her 'flu jab recently, and she coughs and splutters a lot, and the vet thought she suffers from hay fever.

"Billie is important to me as she belonged to a very dear and close aunt."
Could we please ask everyone in the vicinity of Headingly Close and in the surrounding areas, to Please search Garages, Sheds and Outbuildings in the hopes of finding Billie, she could be trapped and in need of help.
