Southeast Boise Residents say Cats Disappearing
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Residents of a southeast Boise neighborhood say at least 25 cats have disappeared from the area in the last few months and are concerned missing cats could be a problem throughout the city.
Cat owners tell KBOI-TV that felines started disappearing last July and then again in the last few weeks. Erin Liedtke says five stray cats living in her garage for eight years all vanished in the last nine months. Humane Society spokeswoman Allison Maier says predators are a big concern and a reason cats go missing.
But Liedtke and Kristi Dohner, whose cat disappeared months ago, says predators would have left carcasses. They suspect a person is responsible, and Liedtke has started a "Catch the Boise Cat Napper" page on Facebook.
