Old Lost & Found register

It is always very difficult for an owner when their cat goes missing, but it is important not to give up hope. The first thing to do should your cat go missing is thoroughly search your house and garden, looking in warm spots (under beds, in cupboards, behind wardrobes). When searching call out your cat's name and use strong food smells to lure him out. Ask neighbours to check their sheds, garages and outhouses for signs of your cat too.

If your search proves fruitless start phoning around local veterinary surgeries (an injured cat may have been handed in), phone local animal rescue organisations. Put up lost cat posters in your area (use a photo if you have one and include a telephone number). You could also consider placing an advert in the local paper, offering a reward could encourage more response. Don't give up, cats can reappear many months after disappearing.

If your cat goes missing, we require the following information please: Your name, address, post code and phone number. Name of cat, date last seen and the address from where you lost the cat, if not from its own home. Colour with any distinguishing marks, male/female, neutered/entire, age, short/long hair, is he wearing a collar, is there ID attached, is it micro chipped? All of this information is very important so we can try to match up your cats details with those found cats already on our register. Contact us on 0345 3714204.
