A CAT that has returned to its owners after spending a week missing cannot recall where it has been.
Black-coated Fizz, who is approximately six years old, sparked panic when she disappeared from her Birmingham home.
After extensive searching of garages and a poster campaign, she returned of her own accord but with no recollection of the intervening six days except a vague sense of menace.
The cat said: “I remember everything perfectly up until last Tuesday afternoon, when I went to sleep on some bags of cement.
“Yesterday I walked into the kitchen, wet and confused. But what happened between those two points, it’s a mystery.
“I get odd flashes of a mountain, and mist, and a very short man in a red fedora hat.
“Also there are three figures wearing helmets, like astronauts, dragging a mannequin or perhaps a dead body across a beach with a purple sky.
“But these could be images from a dream.
“I no longer know what’s real, and what is an illusion.”
She added: “Who can I trust?”
Feline psychologist Emma Bradford said: “I’ve been working with Fizz to unlock those missing memories, but to no avail. Perhaps we will never know what happened.
“Perhaps we are not meant to know.
“She does have a strange seven-pointed geometric design tattooed between her forelegs. Fizz doesn’t appear to have noticed though and I’m not going to tell her because she’ll freak out.”
