A family pet cat has been missing for two months in the Greenfield area of Saddleworth.
Ted, a four year old pedigree British Blue Short-hair has been the Huzar’s family pet for three years and went missing on 7 October 2015.
The British Short-hair is the pedigreed version of the traditional British domestic cat, with a distinctively chunky body, dense coat and broad face.
He has distinguishing features, a short hair coat which is grey and he looks very fluffy, chubby cheeks and piercing bright orange eyes. However as he has been missing for two months now he may look thinner and fragile if seen on the street.
Ted lives with Alex, 21, and Joe, 23, Huzar who are brothers and Ella Clarke, 19, Alex’s girlfriend. Diane, 48, and Stephen, 53, Huzar are living in London at the moment for work but are deeply saddened by Teds disappearance.
The whole Huzar family have been getting involed looking for Ted. Diane Huzar has traveled 1200 miles between London and Greenfield to help her children look for the family cat.
The last sighting of Ted was around Berry Brow, which is five minutes away from the Huzar’s house off the private road of St. Mary’s Drive.
There had been a few sightings of a cat that met Teds description in the middle of October around Grayson Way, which is fifteen minutes away from the Huzar’s house. However Alex and Ella set up a cat trap the day after they heard news of the sightings, but there was no luck.
Shortly after this Greenfield encountered some torrential rain and gale force winds, Alex Huzar said: “Before we knew it it was bonfire night so we suspect that someone has taken him in. Probably a resident around the street where he was last seen.”
Diane Huzar added: ” Someone please keep an eye out for my best friend.
He won’t scratch or anything like that and unfortunately he doesn’t have any details on his collar other than a wee bell and a grey Loc8tor box.”
Ella Clarke commented on this and said: “As far as I was aware he could have been tracked down with this locator we had that Diana got but we soon found out that it was a pretty useless bit of equipment.
The tracker wouldn’t pick him up anywhere in the village and only had a 300m radius on it. If I would have known about that I would have made sure he was chipped.”
The family told us that he likes sitting in the washing machine and boxes, as well as pushing things off shelves. Diane Huzar added: “We can’t have ornaments around as he just swipes them off for the fun of it”.
Flyers have been posted around the town but despite their best attempts they keep getting ripped down. Alex and Ella have gone door to door with over 1500 flyers, costing over £60, to keep Ted on peoples minds and hopefully get him back before Christmas.
With Alex and Ella both working full time, accumulating 70 hours between them weekly, they are struggling to keep up with work and looking for their beloved cat.
Alex Huzar said: “We’re doing as much as we can outside of working hours but it is all taking its toll now.”
Since the beginning of October there have been six cats reported missing in the Saddleworth area.
