Residents of a sleepy village in England are growing concerned as several pets cats have mysteriously vanished over the last year.
The unsettling spate of feline disappearances in Burpham, England have led heartbroken cat owners mystified and fearing the worst.
"They can't just disappear into thin air, but that is how it feels," resident Victoria Holland told the Littlehampton Gazette.
Holland is understandably upset about the weird mystery as she has lost two cats to whatever is responsible for the disappearances.
Another woman who also lost her cat worries that the missing pets may have fallen victim to someone sinister, musing to the newspaper, "is it some mad bird person trying to stop cats?"
