Cats: Big and Missing

Posted by: Nick Redfern on May 2nd, 2013

CFZ Mystery Cats

There’s a new Lair of the Beasts article from me at Its subject is a thought-provoking one: namely, how there is often a rise in the disappearance of pet cats in the UK when their larger and somewhat mysterious cousins – the Alien Big Cats – are around. The subject is one that spans the decades, but for space reasons I have focused on one year: 1976.

Here’s an extract from the article, in the form of a quote from the Center for Fortean Zoology’s Jonathan Downes:

“Cats were disappearing from Redruth, Falmouth, and Penryn over the summer. According to a representative from the Cat’s Protection League, abnormally large numbers of cats were missing from their homes. The spokesman for the charity claimed that they were being sold to vivisectionists; but that is a common story used to explain such spates of missing creatures, and is, I feel, unlikely to be true.”

And here’s the complete article.
