The mother of a young boy with autism is appealing for help to catch and return her son’s beloved pet cat, which has been missing for more than two months.

Suzy Burnett and her family recently moved house from Newton near Sudbury to Lavenham and they tried to keep the cat indoors for the recommended two weeks after moving.

But the adventurous feline, named Anakin after a character in Star Wars, managed to escape and high-tailed it back to his old home in Newton.

There have been numerous sightings of Anakin in the past few weeks, but because he is nervous of men, no-one has been able to catch him.

Mrs Burnett said that her son Morgan has been devastated about losing Anakin, who is a grey and white tabby with white patches.

“Morgan has Asperger syndrome and he and Anakin are inseparable,” Mrs Burnett said.

“The cat usually goes to sleep next to Morgan with his head on the same pillow and they were always playing together. Morgan even bought Anakin a cat bed out of his pocket money.

“He has been getting very distressed since Anakin disappeared so we are desperate to get the cat back.”

Mrs Burnett, who cannot drive, is appealing to anyone in the Newton area who sees the elusive Anakin to catch him in a basket and call her, so he can be reunited with Morgan.

She added: “We know Anakin is alive and well because he has been seen by our old neighbours. We just need to catch him and bring him home.”

Anyone who can help is asked to call 07951 624038.
