A DUNFERMLINE woman who has raised around £7,000 for animal charities has issued an appeal for her missing cat.

Gill Dall has not seen her pure black cat, Jet, since Tuesday morning after he went missing from the Russell Court area of the town.

Jet is three-years-old, castrated, chipped and has green eyes, and will not be wearing a collar.

Gill has asked anyone in the surrounding streets to check any "sheds, garages, porches or outside storage areas" in an effort to find her missing feline.

"He never really goes that far from the house and garden, and he would usually hang around with my other cats," Gill said.

"That's why I think something may have happened to him. This is very unnatural behaviour for him. He may have been locked in by mistake somewhere as he'd always come home."

Over the years, Gill has found better lives for both cats and dogs and has donated thousands of pounds to animal charities – both local and abroad – through fundraisers and her impressive abstract paintings of local pets.

She currently has five cats and one dog, and has taken in many others in recent years during time spent living in France and Spain; two countries she has continued to adopt black cats from.

Gill has raised £2,700 for Spanish charities through her paintings, with the Blue Cross Animal Charity receiving £4,000 in 2018 after her £2,000 of fundraising was matched by her former employer, Ingenico, Dalgety Bay.

Another local rescue charity also benefitted from donations in the past few years.
