Lost and Found


Losing a cat can be a very distressing experience; and finding a homeless cat wandering around can sometimes be distressing too, particularly if the found cat is injured, perhaps from a road traffic accident. We therefore offer a free Lost and Found service for Bedford and the surrounding area (postcodes MK40 - MK45 and SG15 -SG19), whereby we keep a register of all cats reported to us as lost or found, and try to re-unite them with their owner.

Reducing the Risks

The single best thing you can do to avoid losing your cat is to ensure that your cat carries suitable identification. A microchip can be very useful - vets can read them, and we also have a microchip reader. It is also worth considering a collar of some kind, complete with up to date identity tag.
