The mysterious disappearance of cats in the district of bad kissingen

The mysterious disappearance of cats in the district of bad kissingen

"It is simply mysterious", says ursula boehm. She is the director of the wannigsmuhle animal shelter and is currently making an experience that she had never heard of before: "cats are currently disappearing in hammelburg and bad kissingen, and now there are also more reports of missing cats than usual from bad konigshofen."

"An insane amount"

There are "an insane number" reports first received from hammelburg and bad kissingen. She understands this to mean that up to five missing animals a day have been reported – the average is about two cats a day in the catchment area of the animal shelter, which is responsible for the district of bad kissingen. "There are now isolated reports from bad kissingen and hammelburg that the animals have been found." But now the news came from the area of bad konigshofen.

"We simply can’t explain it", says ursula boehm. "In the past, tens of years ago, there were indeed cat catchers who stole the animals for fur production or for animal experiments. But that’s all in the past: today the fences find their ‘goods’ at low cost in the eastern block countries. So far, no cat owners have reported the disappearance of their pet to the police department of bad kissingen.

Corona-conform adorned: the easter fountain in bad bruckenau creates a spring atmosphere

Corona-conform adorned: the easter fountain in Bad Bruckenau creates a spring atmosphere

Since friday afternoon the fountain in front of the old town hall in bad bruckenau shines in the brightest colors. Garlands of easter eggs entwine along the iron strand, which is covered with buchs. "It is a splash of color that perhaps also cheers people up a bit", says wolfgang friedrich. His wife gabriele stands on a small ladder at the edge of the fountain and attaches the garlands with the easter eggs. He trims the ladder and passes the garlands to her. Decorating the easter fountain is a team effort, as it soon becomes clear.

Last year, the easter fountain decorating fell through due to the corona pandemic, as gabriele friedrich, the 2. Chairman of the fruit and gardening association (OGV) of bad bruckenau, told. "At that time, everything was going smoothly. We couldn’t react that quickly." This year, the decoration of the easter fountain takes place in a "slimmed-down form" instead of. The usual flowering candelabra on the fountain’s border were dispensed with.

Easter fountain decorating usually a highlight for the children

"For the kids, decorating the fountain at easter was always a highlight", says gabriele friedrich. While the joint decorating was otherwise a fun activity for everyone, in corona times it is only she, her husband and gisela knuttel from the ranks of the OGV who – in corona style in a small circle with masks and distance – place the colorful easter eggs on the fountain. But even in the small round, the spab is not left out. The mood is good, there is a lot of laughter.

However, market experts doubt the sustainability of the youngest gains in the dax. Andreas buchler of the borsenstatistikmagazin index radar believes only in a short countermovement.
