Found: The missing Norwich moggie who was hunted by psychic

The owners of a missing cat – who enlisted a psychic to help find their beloved pet – have been reunited with their travelling tabby.

The Green family from Sprowston were overjoyed when their nine-year-old cat Mini Max was found in a garden in Upper Hellesdon this week, three miles from his home.

He was discovered on Tuesday nearly two months after he went missing on June 16 and is now recovering at home with Linda Green, 53, and her children Daniel and Rachael, as well as receiving veterinary treatment.

Rachael, 25, a veterinary nurse, said: 'Everyone's so pleased that he's home.

'He was found by a lady and then she contacted her neighbour who's a vet nurse at another clinic. She took him into her work where they then saw his chip.

'They phoned my brother because Max is his cat. He went rushing down there, mum went down there, I left work and rushed down there, and we were reunited that morning.'

Mrs Green added: 'I'm just ecstatic. I haven't stopped looking for him, it's brilliant news.'

The family, from Chenery Drive, who have three other rescue cats, became so desperate to get Max home they called on psychic medium Dominic Zenden to help try to locate him a week after he disappeared.

They also put up more than 400 posters around the St Margaret's estate appealing for people to check their gardens, sheds, vans and cars and set up a Facebook page for their pet to help their search.

More than 230 people joined Max's page on the social networking site, which has now been flooded with messages from well wishers happy to see him return.

But Max was in a poor state when he was found, having lost more than half his body weight. Rachael said he was able to stand for the first time to eat his breakfast yesterday but added that he had a 'long road to recovery'.
