She said: "He is too upset to go to school. [The cat] was found with injuries that suggest that someone stamped on her back. It doesn't look like she's been hit by a car."
Mrs Hall said that a few weeks ago a neighbour's cat also disappeared .
Cats In Crisis spokesman Mary Knott said although some unneutered male cats go missing at this time because it is the breeding season, she is worried because "there is no reconciliation" between the numbers of cats reported missing and those that turn up at vet surgeries and animal rescue centres.
She said: "I am worried that just too many are disappearing whose fate is unknown."
A concern among animal lovers is that the pets have been snatched for their fur.
