Lost Cats

Tips to help find your lost cat

  • If your cat is microchipped, call the microchip company and make sure your contact details are up to date
  • Ask your neighbours to look out for your cat and check their sheds/garages. Put up posters in the local area. You can download a poster template here: lost cat poster
  • Call local vets and animal rescues to report your pet missing. Advertise your lost pet on Facebook and lost pet websites such as www.animalsearchuk.com. This website is FREE.
  • Shake a box of your cat's favourite biscuits/treats to entice them home

  • If your cat has a favourite toy, try leaving it in your garden

  • Cats have a strong sense of smell - hang a regular blanket or bed, or a tshirt that you have worn, on your washing line to encourage your cat out of hiding

  • You might find your moggy is more active at night, especially during hotter weather. Go out with a friend or family member when it is dark, to call for your cat by name

  • Leave a bowl of water out and some food. A tasty treat such as tuna might be enough to bring your cat home. Microwaving it can make the food smell stronger
