If your cat is missing

Cats are curious animals and will find the most unusual places to curl up for a snooze. If your cat goes missing make sure you check:

  • all rooms, cupboards and boxes. Under beds are great hiding places!
  • your washing machine, tumble dryer and even your dishwasher.
  • your garden, shed, garage and hedgerows.
  • have you had visitors or workmen in? Does your cat get into your car?
  • check the lost and found sections in your local paper.

What do I do next?

First of all don't panic! You need to inform as many people as possible and there are several ways to do that:

  • print out some leaflets and post to as many houses as possible
  • tell people as you are posting, people remember a conversation
  • put up posters on trees and lamp posts
  • speak to all your local shops, garages and post offices
  • contact local schools, newspapers and radio stations
  • use any local noticeboards in supermarkets or your church
  • try to include a recent photo of your cat

Who else can I call?

If your cat is microchipped inform the company who holds your contact details, also inform your vet and any other local veterinary practises. There are other organisations you can contact such as:

  • local Cats Protection Branches - 08702 099 099
  • local RSPCA -  0300 1234 999
  • local PDSA -  0800 917 2509
  • Pet Search UK -  0121 743 4133

 When your cat returns do inform any organisations you reported him missing to. If your cat is not neutered it may be the reason for them straying.
