A family from a Norfolk village fears its beloved cat may have been stolen after it went missing.
Jennifer Robertson, 35, from Church Road in Cantley, said that the cat - a ten-year-old named Tia - went missing between 4pm and 6pm on December 14 last year.
A British shorthair colourpoint, Tia had gone outside for a 'run-around before tea' and did not come back.
The behaviour was unusual for the cat, who normally prefers to sit in the back garden and not approach people, Ms Robertson said.
She has a brown face, ears and tail, while the rest of her fur is cream-coloured.

Ms Robertson said that her two daughters are 'heartbroken'.

'We're starting to wonder whether somebody stole the cat to get some money for it,' she said.
She has put flyers up around the village and further afield and has searched the area for weeks, but there have been no signs of any injured cat and no vets have had any cats handed in.
Ms Robertson said she wants people to know that Tia has a home.
'The main thing is to get her home,' she said.
Another cat belonging to the Robertsons, Stormy, went missing in September, and has not been found.
