Troy, the Chasewater Station cat is missing – can you help?


Troy is a lovely lad and many visitors to Chasewater Railway will have met him. Image from Chasewater Railway.

An important and somewhat sad appeal reaches me from Chasewater Railway, the hidden gem at our favourite local country park – it seems that Troy, the Brownhills West Station cat has gone AWOL and volunteers are desperate to see if he’s OK.

Chasewaterstuff issued the following appeal:

The Chasewater Railway’s cat Troy went missing recently from his home at Brownhills West Station.

Troy is a very friendly young male cat, and has been chipped.

He has been seen twice recently on the railway line in the vicinity of the Cherry Tree foot crossing. The Chasewater Railway volunteers are desperate to see him back home and appeal to local residents to let us know if they have seen him. It is quite possible that he has found somewhere local to live, and we ask you to check your gardens, garages, etc.

If you have any information, please let us know by calling David on 07770 600502.

If you can help with Troy’s whereabouts, please do: it’s possible someone well meaning thought he was stray, but he’s been patrolling the station and yards for a good while now and seems to love it.

He’s a very affectionate and happy cat who I’ve met on several occasions.

If you prefer, contact me in confidence: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.

    I saw him on Sunday, behind the trucks next to the signal box. Not sure how long he’s been missing for? Sad!

    Hi Bob, long time reader, first time poster.
    I’ve recently moved to the new Taylor Wimpey site at Chasewater Grange, Norton Canes.
    I saw a cat, that looks very much like Troy, walking around the building site last night (17/3/16 about 7pm). He looked in good health, and was clearly just having an explore of the new surroundings!
    I’ll give the above number a call if I seen in again.
