Somebody out there has noticed, or will notice, your cat - the idea is to find & let that person know to contact you.

The advice for re-locating lost pets & the knowledge in this section stem from universally recognised guidelines, 1st hand experiences & some very real lost & found cases.

STEP-BY-STEP GUIDELINES for re-locating lost cats can be found in this chapter...

If you truly cannot search yourself, you could enlist the help of others such as animalsearchuk.co.ukThis comes at a conciderable cost, is less of a personal appeal & It is no guarentee, the principles of the search methods do seem similar, however should you pay people for their time do not rely on that alone & our advice is to search using the following guidelines aswell once their time is finished!

"Thank you so much, i went off looking for her & found her. She is now filthy, still hungry, but curled up in bed. I told our vets about your website"

Gemima's family 13/04/10 - Gemima was missing for approx 10 days

Because of her owners quick response with posters & publicity, attention was paid to Gemima in the streets. She was very fortunate to have been noticed quickly by a member of the public who thought that she might match the description in the poster, & who was kind enough to relocate the poster & call the number. She was still wearing a collar & id tag but had gone further than anyone might have thought.

"Amazing news! Milo was waiting at the cat flap this morning (sadly it was locked!). He seems ok however I don't think he has been fed he has lost a huge amount of weight but is not injured in anyway and his collar was still intact with his phone number."

Milo's family 07/02/13 - Milo returned home 2 weeks after his disappearance.

Because of his owners quick response with posters & publicity, people in the neighbourhood were made aware & were asked to check their sheds etc. We may never know for sure but it is probable that on one a particular night of high winds, a little cat panicked, lost himself & sought shelter. The shed, within which he found his shelter (or was hunting a mouse), may then have been battened down against the weather while he was hiding within it. Following the requests on leaflets, outbuildings were being checked & perhaps one of these openings released the trapped Milo. It is of course possible that he simply lost himself & eventually found his own way back - but we can't rely on that potential as it is a rarity, & to do nothing but wait would literally be gambling with their lives!

A cat wearing a collar doesn't automatically mean it is not lost. Please keep an eye our for any animal behaving oddly.

After 6 weeks, Lilly was found near a pub, probably attracted to the kitchen food smells. On her owners 3rd visit checking an unconfirmed sighting but just about to leave again, Lilly emerged from some bushes & ran across the road into a garden...

"I kept calling & then she stopped, turned around & came to me yowling! She let me pick her up! Amazing! She's very skinny & hungry, but home now."
