Shirley woman claims mystery person cutting her cat's hair every other day
A CONCERNED cat-lover claims a mystery pet hairdresser is shaving her moggy.
Stephanie Warton, 60, of Oaks Avenue in Shirley, is desperate to find the crafty crimper responsible for shearing her beloved Barney.
She said: "It's a complete mystery, whoever is doing it does another little bit every day so they think I won't notice, but I'm not stupid.
"I want to find them so I can shave their hair off and see how they like it."

Mrs Warton noticed her pet was sporting a shorter look then usual eight months ago after he returned from one of his usual jaunts outdoors.
She said: "It seems to happen every other day or so. First his mane was cut short. He used to have a shaggy bob but now there's nothing there.
"Then gradually I noticed his stomach had been shaved, and his legs.
"He used to have three-inch hair and now in places it's barely half an inch long.
"It's crazy. I have done everything; I have asked neighbours if they know anything.
"I've contacted the RSPCA and pet shops, I have even put labels on his collar saying leave my cat alone, but when he comes home the collar has gone.
"I must have bought about eight different collars but as soon as he comes home at the end of the day the collar is gone and his hair's been cut.
"I have even tried following him but I still don't know what's going on."
Mrs Warton is concerned that, as winter approaches, Barney will suffer without his long coat.
She said: "Now that his top coat has been mysteriously cut off, he has no protection from the rain or cold and I am worried about him.
"I want to put a tracker device on him so I can find the person who is doing this. It looks like professional work and I desperately want to report them for it.
"If anyone could help me figure out who is doing this, or think of any way I can stop it from happening, I'd be awfully grateful.
"I miss my long-haired cat."
