Sir Diddymus Missing

Wednesday 12th July Sir Diddymus, owned by Jenna Smith went missing after falling from an open window.

We are asking everybody in the Northwood area of London to keep a look out for him. He is possibly injured from the fall and likely to be very scared. These animals bond to their owners so please if you see him do not attempt to approach or capture him but keep him in view and contact his owner who is desperately following up any sightings.

If you do think you have seen him then please contact Jenna on 07376492196
