What to do when your cat goes missing.

What to do when your cat goes missing.

It’s every cat owners worst nightmare. Cats are explorers and will enjoy roaming, which is all well and good until they don’t come back when expected. So, what do you do then? Here is a list of things you can do, but hopefully your four legged, fluffy, friend will be back very soon.

  1. Ensure that their microchip information is up to date. It is vital that you microchip your cat, especially for these moments. Anyone who locates your cat and realises that they ae lost can then take them to a local vets to be scanned and reunited with their owner. If you don’t keep the information on the chip up to date then this job is made much harder, if not impossible.
  2. Make up some posters to display in your local area. Make sure it includes at least one good (colour preferably) photo of your cat and a way to get in contact should they be found.
  3. Get in contact with vets and other animal shelters in the local area. 
  4. Contact your neighbours. Ask them to check in any garages or sheds to make sure your cat has not got stuck inside. Cats are inquisitive by nature and may have snuck in without being noticed.
  5. Check online. Post details on any local Facebook groups to see if anyone has seen them.
  6. Register your cat on a national lost pet database such as https://www.animalsearchuk.co.uk.

Mostly do not panic. Cats do sometimes wonder off, sometimes for a few days at a time. But they usually tend to reppear, acting as if they’ve never been away!
