Lost A Cat?

Make sure that you have the following information to hand when you phone us:




Losing your Cat can be a worrying time. We hope the following tips and advice will be of help to you

 ~ Please report your cat missing as soon as possible in order to maximise the chances of finding it.  If you have a photograph of your cat then you can e-mail this to us and we will include it in our Lost and Found Register.
 ~ Look in all rooms, cupboards, boxes, large appliances (washing machines, etc), hedgerows, sheds, garages, gardens, lofts and vehicles. Ask your neighbours to do the same.
 ~ Check the "Lost and Found" section of local newspapers.
 ~ Contact all local vets to see if your cats has been handed in.
 ~ Cats do not normally range too far from their home territories so quickly print plenty of "Lost Cat" posters (with a photo and reward if possible) and put them through letterboxes in the local area. Trees and lamp posts may also be used but letterboxes are far more efficient. Also, put the posters in local Vets, Shops, Newsagents, Pubs, Takeaways, Surgeries, Care Homes and other suitable local premises where plenty of people will see them.
 ~  Ring the Street Cleansing Department of your local Council as they keep records of all animals they pick up. 
 ~ Register your cat on these free websites.

When you do find your cat, please inform any organisations that you told about its disappearance so that they know to stop looking.
