Cat owners of Dublin are being warned that there has been a spate of catnappings recently.
The trend appears to have originated in Newry and Belfast but a number of cases have been confirmed in the Dublin area in recent days.
Newry-based pet shop Pet Connection have created this handy map which tells users when and where cats have gone missing as well as their names.
Pet Connection is urging anyone whose cat goes missing to get in touch via its Facebook page
Spread the word, folks.
