Lost Cat Information
- Don't panic! Make sure you’ve checked all nooks and crannies in the house/garden. Sometimes they like a change of routine just to frighten their owners!- Contact local vets - Foxhall, Kirks, Riverside, Quarrington
- They all keep a list of lost and found andthe cat may be have reported as 'found' to them. People tend to take and report animals to their vet rather than the closest.
- Contact other charities - RSPCA, HART, Lincs Arc, Lincoln Cat Care etc
- Put some of the dirty litter out in the garden - they may pick up on the smell if they’re wandering in circles
- Have someone they love in the family wear an old t-shirt/jumper and get it really hot and sweaty, tearit in strips and tie them round the garden - again they might pick up on the smell (renew if it rains)
- Knock on doors/put slips through doors asking people to check sheds garages etc. Cats travel further then you think!
- Speak to anyone who comes into your area on a regular basis - postman, newspaper delivery, milkman, dog walkers, school children etc
- Posters in local area shops, notice boards, vets, pet shops, newsagents
- Make yourself known as the crazy cat lady by walking the streets calling the cats and making a sound that usually brings them running - shaking biscuits, treats, tapping bowl etc
- If micro-chipped contact the Petlog on 0844 4633 999
- Contact the waste department of the local council- they are responsible for collecting any animals found at the side of the road
- Register missing cat at www.animalsearchuk.co.uk
- Use social media – Facebook/Twitter etc If you aren’t registered as a user, ask someone to post on your behalf
- Keep a list of all those organisations your contacted so that when they are found you can let everyone know!
Cats have been reunited weeks/months and even years after being reported missing so please don’t give up hope!
