Has anyone seen Squeak? Missing For 2 Months! Has anyone seen Squeak or know where she is please, I’ve just learned that she has not been seen by my house/cat sitters since just after I left in late May. Near the bridge in Puente don Manuel, by the track which runs to the olive press at the back of the shops and bars. Have you seen her? Have you “rescued” her thinking she has no home? Have you adopted her or taken her in? She is 3-4 years old, spayed but not ear clipped and no chip. I need to know where she is and whether she is safe or even dead. If anyone has her and she is happy, she can stay although I’d love to see her again. ANY information urgently sought, (incomplete email deleted) or text me +447976 715409.
