CRUEL hoax calls have left the owner of a missing cat broken hearted and still searching for her beloved pet.

After Chrissie Henry put up reward posters around March, she had a variety of calls - one claiming her dead cat had been put in a pizza box, and another falsely claiming to have found her cat and inquiring about the reward on offer.

She even gave a £10 reward to two lads who thought they had found her black and white cat called Bo - but Chrissie’s hopes were dashed when a test on the microchip showed that the cat belonged to someone else.

“Those lads were smoking dope and thought it was funny to give some to the cat,” said Chrissie, who moved from Northamptonshire to her home in Nene Parade at March back in June.

“The cat was quite sleepy, but looked like my cat. But when it refused to eat prawns I suspected it was not Bo, and a test at the vet showed it was not him.

“My cat was really settled for the first four weeks we were in March, but then seemed to disappear into thin air. I have had him for seven years, he is neutered, has white socks on his back feet, and a distinctive white smudge on his nose.”

Chrissie, who reported one hoax call to the police, loves her new life in Fenland. “Losing Bo is the only thing that has gone wrong. I have found people very friendly,” she said. “But I was very upset and disappointed by the hoax calls.”

Chrissie added: “I really miss Bo, and just want to know what happened to him. If he has a new home, I would like to know he is safe and happy.”
