A GUIDE TO FINDING YOUR LOST CAT


When your cat goes missing it can be an extremely upsetting time. Some cats do stay out for long periods but if your cat is lost or missing we have added some useful tips below. Please do not give up hope.


IS YOUR CAT MICROCHIPPED?


Please ensure that you contact the microchip company to report your cat missing and check that all your details are up to date. The microchip company will then flag your cat as missing.




THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP FIND YOUR CAT


  • Look around your garden. Check in sheds, garages, in trees and small tight dark places, even if you do not think your cat couldn’t get into it. Use a torch if you need to. Indoor cats lost outside become active in the evening usually around 7pm-5am. The best times for you to actively search is after 11 pm or around 4am when its very quiet. Get permission from your neighbours to look around their gardens
  • Put posters up. Ask local shopkeepers if you can put a poster in their shop window
  • Phone your local vets with a description of your cat
  • Leave an item/blanket with familiar smells on it. Some owners have said that emptying the contents of your hoover bag in the garden helps. Put their uncleaned litter tray outside if they use one
  • Search your area with your cats favourite food that smells strong like tuna

FOUND A CAT?
  • Before you do anything, it is important to assess whether the cat you've found is a stray, a feral or an owned cat. If they appear well-groomed and is a healthy weight, they may have an owner nearby
  • Ask neighbours if they recognise the cat - he/she might be new to the area
  • If the found cat is friendly, you might be able to check for an identification tag - if it belongs to someone, give them a call and let them know.
  • You can take the cat to your nearest vet to scan for a microchip. ALL Vets will do this FREE OF CHARGE
  • Check the LOST CATS page on our website to see if the cat has already be reported to us
