If your cat or kitten has gone missing, don’t despair. Most return of their own accord, sometimes several days later. However, here are some steps you can take to try and help:

Look in…

• all rooms, cupboards, boxes and household appliances, eg washing machines
• gardens and hedges – he may be hurt, frightened and hiding nearby – keep calling him, particularly at night when it’s quiet – and put out his used litter tray and a familiar blanket as cats can smell these from a long distance
• sheds and garages
• vehicles
• the lost and found section of your local newspaper

Inform…

• your microchip company
• local veterinary practices
• neighbours, using leaflets – or even better, talk to them directly to ensure they check garages etc – or better still, ask if you can check there yourself (pay particular attention where neighbours are away, as cats can get locked in by accident)
• your local branches of Cats Protection and other local cat charities
• the cleansing department of your local council
• your postman, milkman and newspaper delivery person
• websites such as animalsearchuk.co.uk  and Facebook groups such as ‘Lost and Found Pets in High Wycombe and Surrounding Areas’, ‘Harveys Army South’, ‘Lost and Found Pets UK’

Advertise…

• posters on trees, distribute leaflets to shops, post office, garages.
• in local schools, newspapers, radio
• on local noticeboards, including a recent photograph of your missing cat
• offer a reward

Finally…

• the earlier you report your cat is missing, the more likely it is that it will be found
• when your cat does return, DO inform any organisations who have been asked to look for it
• have your cat microchipped!

Have you found a cat?

If you’ve found a cat that you think matches the description of any here on our site, please email or call us on 01494 448849. You might also consider some or all of the following:

• if the cat is hungry, please feed it
• if possible, take the cat to a vet who will check for a microchip, and you can ask if anyone has reported a similar cat missing
• if no microchip is found, you could produce some ‘Cat Found’ leaflets to be distributed in the area it was found.  You can also try putting a paper collar on the cat, and knocking on a few doors to ask if anybody recognises the cat

Doing these things is often very successful in reuniting a cat with its owners and it is important that these procedures are carried out before Cats Protection takes the cat in for rehoming.
