Timmy is a Black and White cat. He is small, about 15yrs old, but is quite fit apart from being a bit stiff when he jumps on chairs.

I inherited him from my father who died in Dunbar, Scotland, and was brought to Preston on 12th December 2008. He was not allowed out of the house until around 1st Jan.2009 and was not allowed out at night until 6th February.

When Timmy went outside he only went around the garden and straight back in, but I am led to believe the night before he went missing he may have been out all night.

He has a very distinctive miaow (whining noise) and does not purr. He is a very friendly cat and settled in Preston very well.

Was last seen wearing gold coloured collar with 2 magnets on it. He is also Deaf.

The frustrating thing is that at 5.00 a.m on Wed 25th Feb several people in Lightfoot Lane heard a very strange sound which I am sure was Timmy.  Also I only heard yesterday that someone who lives at the end of our Lane (which is about 200 yards long) heard the same sound at the same time.  Timmy used to miaow regularly in our garden at 5.00 a.m.  After that the trail goes cold.  A possible theory is that Timmy went through the back of the houses on Lightfoot Lane on to the other part of Lightfoot Lane and on to waste ground beside the golf course.  The waste ground is about a mile long and very overgrown and I think it would be impossible to find Timmy in there.

"Please look for Timmy and check all outbuildings. I am very upset at losing him and I promised my father I would look after him when he died..
