Biff is an older Grey and white male. He went missing on the 12th October after moving from the Mount Pleasant area. He is a rescue cat who had a rough start to his life, unfortunately this means he is not very trusting of unknown people, and would be likely to run away from strangers. Any sightings would be greatly appreciated.
Pet name: Biff
Gender: Male
Age: Approx 12
