if I ever have to leave the car parked up for a long period, I remove the king lead.
Start that you feckers!
As for the cats , we have had similar thefts here (all down to one specific group)
In one instance they cut the cats from a whole fleet parked in a depot overnight.

How can I get in touch with these thieves?

Selling a car is such a chore.

P.S. They used to advertise on postcards in shop windows ...

P.P.S Thieves don't pay a fair price. Even an "it still works init" 240 like mine is saleable, probably for more than I paid for it.
