PINSKY STILL MISSING

The hunt is still on for Pinsky, the young, black-and-white Bellevue Rd cat who went missing on 21 April (see 'Breaking news', 27.4.10).

Pinsky's owners have now searched from St Mark's Park to Easter Road, and from Northumberland Street to the foot of Bonnington Road. They have had calls and emails about possible sightings, but he's not the only black-and-white cat in Edinburgh. At this point he could be anywhere and they just hope he's OK.

'The only silver lining to this is that we have now spoken to a very large number of people in the Broughton area, and everyone has been very sympathetic and as helpful as they can,' one of the owners told Spurtle.

'There's still a community spirit here that I think might be an increasingly rare thing these days.'

Keep your eyes peeled.
