“Her owners have put up missing posters and have been advised to place food and blankets outside, and go out at night to call for her.”

This post has been shared by the Lothian Cat Rescue who are also hoping that the family can be reunited with their beloved Millie.

The posters that have been put up across Morningside say that a reward is available for anyone who has information that will help trace the sweet black and white cat.

It also adds that Millie: “is very thin and does not make any sound.”

Anybody who can help should contact either the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home or Lothian Cat Rescue, or contact the number that has been given on the poster.
