Farmer Kjartan Ágústsson in Langamýri, North Iceland, is asking for help to find 8 cats that have mysteriously vanished over the course of the summer. Kjartan believes the disappeareances are the work of a serial catnapper, reports Vísir.

“I haven’t an inkling about what’s happened, they’ve just been disappearing this summer, well since spring. They just started vanishing one, then another, then three, finally four in one go,” said Kjartan who conceded his cats were trusting and affectionate to strangers. “These are just regular house cats, ranging in age from one to, well quite mature. Somehow, they have become the victims of catnapping, if I may be so bold to suggest it.” 

Kjartan asks that anyone with information about his cats’ whereabouts get in touch with him. He is listed in the phonebook and on já.is. 

This is not the first case of catnapping in Iceland, just this spring the Grapevine reported on a string of cat disappearances in Mosfellsbær, a suburb of Reykjavík.
