What to do if your cat goes missing
If you cat goes missing, please register it on the Pets Located website. This is an online resource that will automatically match lost pets to those which have been registered on the site as 'found' - every animal we take in as a stray will be added to this website, so please make sure you register your missing cat on there to help you locate it sooner.
You can also:
- Contact local RSPCA branches and animal hospitals.
- Check sheds, allotment buildings, barns, building sites, garages and attics.
- Put up posters (with your cat's photograph on) and deliver leaflets tp houses in neighbouring streets. You are welcome to bring a poster to Millbrook, which we will display on our notice board.
- Put adverts or notices in local newsagents, shops, local pubs, community centres, church halls.
- Contact vet surgeries within a 20 mile radius of your home, as most of them will have a lost and found register.
- Call animal rescue organisations within a 50 mile radius.
- Write to local and free papers, enclosing a photograph of your cat.
- Contact your local council's cleansing department and ask if they have come across any cat corpses.
How to reduce the chance of your cat getting lost again
