Lost and Found
Have You Lost Your Cat?
Losing your cat can be a distressing experience. However, we hope that if you carry out the following procedures, your cat can be returned safely back to you:
- Contact your local Cats Protection, who will record your cat's details in their "Lost Book"
- Contact your local RSPCA ( tel 01925 632944 ) - who will check if your cat has been admitted to their shelter.
- Contact your local vet to check that your cat hasn't been admitted to the surgery. Ask if you can put your cat's details on their notice board.
- Post leaflets around the area, especially to those neighbours close to you, asking them to look in their sheds and garages. If you have a photograph of your cat, so much the better!
- Post a leaflet in your local shop.
- Place a advert in the "Lost and Found" section of your local newspaper.
- Register your lost pet with Animal search uk, mymoggy.com and http://www.thecheshirepetnetwork.co.uk/lost-and-found.php
We hope that your cat comes home safely, but remember! - If your cat is micro-chipped it has a better chance of being found if it ever strays.
Have You Found a Cat?
- Do not feed or encourage the cat inside your home.
- Leave the cat alone for a few days to give the cat a chance to go home. Most stray cats will have a home and just visit other houses in the neighbourhood for food.
- Take the cat to the vets to see if it has a microchip.
- Contact us to report the cat found.
- Get a paper collar from us. If the cat does return home at night the owner will contact us.
- Report the cat found on Animal search uk, mymoggy.com and http://www.thecheshirepetnetwork.co.uk/lost-and-found.php
- Put up posters in local vets, shops.
- If after a few weeks the cat is still hanging around contact us to put it on our waiting list for re-homing.
If you have found a cat and it is injured or needs veterinary attention, please take it to your nearest vet or call the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999.
