One of the most adorable kittens one is ever likely to see has left rivers of tears in her wake when she wandered off into the big, bad world without leaving any forwarding address.

Six-month-old Snowy escaped with the guile of Houdini from Milnerton Veterinary Clinic on 20 March at about 22:00.

She either overestimated her tracking skills or underestimated the size of the world when she decided to take the initiative and head for her loving home in Woodbridge Island.

“Snowy’s sister is very sad,” confirms Catherine Alexander, before adding that her human family is just as distraught.

The Alexanders have dropped off pamphlets at many houses and flats in the vicinity, but no one has to date given them any hints as to Snowy’s whereabouts, despite a monetary reward on offer.

“We sent her to be sterilised, but she escaped during the night. She was probably a little ‘psychotic’ after the episode,” smiles Alexander.

The public need not fear the temporarily “psychotic” kitten, since she is unarmed and not considered to be dangerous.

Tasty-looking mice should, however, take note that Snowy might pounce expertly when she’s hungry.

According to Alexander, the vet Dr Neville Goldberg, has been very supportive in the continuing cat-hunt and he has even paid for an advertisement in this newspaper.

“She is such a sweet kitten,” continues her loving owner.

“People might not even know she is on their property, or even hiding under their bed! She is white with a black tail and a black patch on her ear.”

Spokesperson for the Mice Action Group, Jeremy Mouse, says there’s nothing adorable about teeth and claws. He concludes by expressing his desire for cheese and for Snowy to be found post-haste.

The Ball of Yarn Association has completely unravelled with the news of a kitten on the prowl.
