Lost and Found

Lost Cats

Cats are less likely to go missing if they are neutered, and are kept in at night.
If your cat is missing:
Thoroughly check your property, all rooms, cupboards, boxes, household appliances, sheds, garages and vehicles.
Put some posters up on lamp posts, trees etc. and place in shops, garages, post offices.
Walk around the neighbourhood and ask everyone you see, including the postman, the milkman, paper delivery boy etc.
Place an advert in the local paper.
Contact Veterinary practices, your local Cats Protection Branch, RSPCA and the Police Check with the Cleansing Dept. of your local Council.
Ask the local radio to give details out on air.

If your cat returns don't forget to notify the relevant people.
If possible post to Colwyn & District Facebook page & complete details on AnimalSearchUK. (Link on this page)

Found Cats
Firstly ensure that the cat is indeed lost.
Ask your neighbours, especially any new people to the area.
Advertise in the local paper, put up some posters.
Ascertain if possible the sex of the cat & estimate its age, it's colour and whether it has a collar.
If possible take to a vet to see if it has a microchip Notify vets, RSPCA, Cats Protection, Police, giving as much information as possible.
Please give the cat food and water, and some shelter.
Do not expect organisations to collect the cat immediately as most are full to capacity. 
If possible post to Colwyn & District Facebook page. Place details on the AnimalSearchUK (on this page)
