Mogla a 3-4yr old Neutered DSH male with Grey eyes.
Tabby with Grey and black stripes & spots
Hi Sue,
Mogla came back!  he returned 9th July, very thin but otherwise healthy so either he lost his way or was trapped somewhere, I guess we will never know.   We went out to get him on the back of a hoax call (All other calls were full of good will I might add) and when we returned he was waiting for us starved of food and affection.
Me and my partner are thrilled.
Many thanks, his section on the website looked excellent.
Best Wishes

RIP 'Edward' 19th May.2007 - 3rd Jul.2007
c1763

Edward a 10yr old neutered DSH male with Green/Yellow eyes
Completely Black with just a bit of White hair on underbelly.  Long whiskers
Hello, Thank you so much for supporting our efforts to find Edward after he went missing on 19th May in Weybourne, Farnham. Sadly, I received word from a house further up our avenue on 3rd July that a cat's carcass had been dragged onto their back lawn in the night. It had been dead a long time and was all but decomposed, but it was definitely a black cat of his size. The microchip was missing, of course, but as I had known Ed well, I believed that I could still identify him from what features there were remaining and we buried him at his favourite spot in the garden. One ID that was clear was an old tattoo in one ear, going back to when we first found him abandoned in December 1996, and took him in to a vet for a check-up & neutering. In life, the mark had become blurred and was ignored as unreadable on later records, but I have just found some papers going back to his origins and sure enough the tattoo matches. It was Ed. We still don't know what happened or where he had la in all that time. There were no clues from his remains. We have to satisfy ourselves knowing where he lies now. Live on in our hearts, Edward.

"spectacles". Distinctive White feet, White muzzle and Pink nose.
Missing from the area of the Bollington Veterinary Practice on Grimshaw Lane...
dear sue,
He has come home! i can't begin to tell you how overjoyed I am, though I expect you know already. he looks a bit thin, and was very hungry, and ate 2 packs of felix straight down in one go. I can't believe how clever he is to have got over the canal, and a road, mostly in the pouring rain. i spent hours walking around calling, and my husband even came back from london, where he works, overnight on tuesday to help look for him, and my son came over from nottingham to make posters. but i knew he would never come out for anyone, not even for me, or the dogs, so i was very unhopeful.
he is so nervous, and always has been since a kitten. we walked around all possible directions in the hope it would leave a scent trail, especially the dogs, who smell terrible! i would love to know what route he found home. it was the middle of the night when he arrived back.
everyone has been so nice to me, and they are so pleased that he is back, even people who put the posters up who don't know either him or me, and people on the other end of the phone.
your website was a great source of hope, so thank you for doing it.The worst thing is not knowing what has happened to them , and fearing that you will never know. I didn't want to go on holiday, even though there would have been someone in the house if he came home. I think he is even more special to me now than he was before, having almost lost him.
thank you so much for your help and encouragement. i will keep looking at your website to see if i can help anyone else in the same situation, as i know how awful it is, and i will be sending another donation too.
thanks again,
yours, Jo.

'Bruiser' 11th Jul.2007 - 23rd Jul.2007
c1855

Bruiser an 18mth old Neutered male with Amber eyes
Black and White . He has White whiskers, White back legs, White front paws, a White bib, and unusual markings on his nose (like a Battenberg cake)
Great news Sue, he is back safe and sound at 1.30 this morning.  have just taken him to the vets for a check up, his ears are covered in flea bites, so we have had that sorted, and he has now  been microchipped.  this is what i posted on the forum, i had postered the area and also hand delivered posters through 300 doors, people have been great, when i went out looking i was always bumping into people who were or had been looking too.  this also genereated a few phone calls but, had loads yesterday about him in the country park.

after a couple previous possible sightings in the area, got a call tonight to say he had been spotted over the country park, as you can see from the map it is quite a distance, so i bolted over there with his tin to rattle.  when i got there i couldnt see him, a couple were there already looking as they had spotted him, we heard meowing (but i thought could be wishfull thinking) but still couldnt see him.  so i rang the lady that had called me and she came down with her hubbie.  Bruiser then made an appearance but wouldnt come near me, and ran away when i tried to get close.

i was frantically trying to get hold of other half but couldnt, he was walking the dog around the country park at the time, so  i left and bolted back home for tuna/biscuits etc.
when i got back he was there again bold as brass sitting on the fence having a wash next to the entrance, but wouldnt come when i called him and again ran away.
got hold of the CP lady who said when i got hold of other half to send him round to get a trap, but she was understandably concerned the trap would be stolen, but we told her we would replace it if it did.
so we have set the trap in a secluded area where he was baited with tuna, no one can see it, and it is in an area people dont walk
just 0.23 miles from his home to where he is, as you can see the country park, called stanwick lakes, is a massive complex.
the road you can see is the very busy A45.
 
you arent going to believe this he just jumped on the bed!!!!!!
i just cant get over it, my other half woke me up and said Bruisers back, and I was really confused, I said what???? he said put the light on, so I did, i thought I had dreamt it, i frequently have spider in the bed dreams where I do the same thing.
and there he was, he is fine. last thing i did before i went to bed was shout acrross the field louder than normal, i suppose that is what brought him home. there is no way the cat earlier was another cat, Bruiser is very distinctive and I got very close to him.

will still get up at 4 and go get the trap. i know i went against a lot of advice, but i did cover the trap against the weather.

thank you all so much for your support, it's been great.
his poor sister Missy must be getting a headache from all the furry headbuts she is getting. needless to say, his collar is back on now

'Milo' 7th July.2007 - 24th Jul.2007
c1849

Milo a 5yr old Persian male with Blue eyes.
Hi Sue, 
I'm really please to tell you we finally have Milo back!!! We received a phone call yesterday from animal search uk to say a couple in Dunster Rd (5mins away) had called to say they'd seen him in their garden a few times and had fed him. The bloke had gone to the post box yesterday and saw a poster and realised it was him. He said I never use that post box so it's very lucky!!They rang us when he appeared last night and we went around there. He was so scared he didn't recognise us and legged it. We had a small domestic in there garden about whether we should try and go after him but didn't want to scare him any further away. Mark went home to get the cat trapper and I stayed, he was crying & meowing, so I edge my way forward & got close enough for him to recognise me and he finally ran over and I picked him up. He's a little skinny, smelly and very tired but seems ok apart from that. We didn't get much sleep as he was wanting our attention all night and just purring!
I think I might take him to the vets in the next few days for a check up but apart form a couple of scratches he's seems fine. Luckily he'd only recently had his inoculations.
Thanks for all your help.
Kind Regards  Stacey

Sue,  Great news, had a call from the RSPCA this afternoon, a lady living 1 mile away had found my cat! I left work straight away to collect her. She had been missing a week, the lady found her hanging round her garden on Friday & had been feeding her, and because she had a collar on thought it would be best to contact the RSPCA who i had registered my cat missing with.
Thanks anyway for your help, your website had kept me positive reading stories of found pets so I never gave up hope!

Dunfermline KY11
Found 18th Jul.2007 - 23Jul.2007
c1857
  • An All Black cat found in the area of the Bank of Scotland branch on Bothwell Street in Dunfermline. KY11
  • In excellent condition. Friendly and affectionate cat.

    Hi Sue,
    We have found the owners of this cat. Someone who lived just a few streets away from where she was found saw some of the posters I put up and phoned me today. The cats’ name is Jess and she has been reunited with her family and her sister Gizmo.
    Apparently she has been missing since mid-June and has previously ended up in the car park of the bank but this time the owners search didn’t find her. They had given up on finding her and assumed she had been hit by a car on the nearby dual carriageway.
    So, happy news for Jess and her family!
    If you still want a photo to put in your ‘home safe’ section, Iet me know and I will send you one. In fact I have attached one and you can use it if you want.
    After having Jess in our home for five days we are a little sad to see her go as we had gotten quite attached to her and she was a very loving and affectionate wee cat, but we are happy to see her back home safe.
    We are hoping that there is such a thing as karma and this good deed done brings our own missing cat home.
    Thanks,
    Richard

Dewey a 10yr old Spayed DSH female with Green eyes
All Black - a few (4 or 5) white hairs on chest.
Hi Sue
We got Dewey back this morning.  We had an early morning phone call from the new occupants of Irene's old house - only about 5 mins walk away.  She had apparently come in through the cat flap and they found her hissing under a bed late last night.
She looks fine, her coat is a bit open but she doesn't appear to have lost any weight during the 12 days.  For the first time ever she didn't grumble or struggle when we picked her up, and she hasn't stopped purring yet.
Many thanks for your advise and emails, I can bring my socks in now!

Hi Sue
Fantastic news - we've found him!!! I got a phone call from my other half at 5pm last night to say that he had turned up in our garden and was hiding under our shed! This was about half an hour after I registered on My Moggy! H is fine, a bit skinny and fragile but we're taking him to the vets tonight to get him checked over. He slept on the bed with us all last night and its great to be all re-united.
Thanks again, looking on your site really gave me hope yesterday.

RIP 'Sam' 8th Jul.2007 - 10th Aug.2007
c1852

Sam a Neutered and Chipped DLH male with Yellow/Green eyes.  All White, no other markings.
Hello Sue,
Sadly we found Sam's body a few hours ago. My neighbour who lives just a few doors away cut back some of her trees & bushes today and this revealed Sam's body in a 12" gap between her back fence and the tall wall behind this. He seemed like he'd been there for a while - possibly since he went missing just over 4 weeks ago - so it's possible he crawled into this gap to hide due to being injured. We had to remove my neighbours fence panels to get Sam out of there. It's doubly painful because my husband was saying weeks ago that we needed to get access to that gap as Sam would regularly be seen running through this - a long very narrow passageway that runs behind several gardens. Not wanting to disturb my neighbours too much though I'd told my hubby "we can't do that" and so this small gap remained unexplored until today. I can't dwell too much on what may have happened to my poor baby - it's just so painful - I'm trying to take comfort instead in the fact that he's now at peace and back home in his garden with us where he belongs.Tomorrow I'll be looking for a white flowering plant that's as sweet and beautiful as my darling boy was and plant it in his memory. 

If you put this update on your website PLEASE tell others looking for their cats to explore every single nook & cranny no matter how odd it may seem. If it means annoying your neighbours and having them think you are completely mad just do it anyway! I spent weeks going on wild goose chases, walking miles & miles, when all along my baby was lying less than 50 feet away from me. 
Many thanks for your great website and the good advice you gave,
Julie

He came home!!!!!  At 6am on Saturday so he was away for 11 days.  He stank to high heaven and his white bits were yellow and he had lost his collar but other than that he was shiny and bright, healthy and happy!  I gave him a bath and he has not stopped eating, purring and sleeping since!  Beautiful boy.  Anyway, please put his success story up if you like!  I would love to know where he has been!

All black ...

Hi Sue
Thanks for your email.  I'm extremely delighted to tell you that Billy has been found safe and well in someone's front garden not too far from here (although he crossed a busy road to get there).  Because we have only just moved here and he doesn't know the area I really thought he was lost forever but thanks to the kind lady, herself a two cat owner, for taking him to the local vets, and also valuable advice given to me to contact them as well as the local RSPCA to say he was missing, we have been reunited.
Billy is now living the life of Riley, eating like a king and sleeping wherever he chooses, despite previous prohibitions.  I am so, so thrilled to have him back, as is the rest of the family, and it has shown us all just how precious he really is.  Needless to say, we've blocked up the gap he crawled through, he has also now been chipped and I've bought him a collar which surprisingly enough he doesn't mind wearing.  At least if he ever goes wandering again people will see that he belongs to someone.
Although I didn't manage to put Billy onto MyMoggy thankfully, your website is a fabulous idea and I'm sure really helps people to find their precious pets, though of course some of the messages when they do are really sad.
Best regards,

We'll keep him in a few days, build up his strength and have the Vet check him over, but we're both very happy and also completely at a loss to know what happened -probably will never know. His pads are not worn and he smelt slightly musty, but that's all!
Thankyou so much for your time and support, he's curled up on the sofa with twin brother right now!

He was very quick to I suspect he had sneaked out of the house following the other cats then got lost. My cat (Fluff, very fluffy ginger tom) wasn't very impressed with the kitten so it's best his owners contacted me, although it's surprising how fast you get used to having them around. Well lol he had travelled to the end of his road when I found him looking scared and hiding in a hedge. He was only 14 weeks old according to the vet...

'Misty' found spring 2007 - Aug.2007
c1787

'Misty'  found in the area of Grand Avenue.
A 'tuxedo' cat, Black and White with Green eyes
White socks and nose, classic 'dinner jacket' white front, black chin.
Just to let you know, 'Misty' as featured on your website, has been REUNITED with his owner this month. He was actually found a new home when after several months the owner couldn't be traced, but this lady had a holiday booked and so it was agreed that rather than uproot him twice, we'd wait until the end of September to re-home him.
In the meantime, he was reunited with his rather emotional owner, and the lady who was going to have him (and who had called him Roger) agreed it was better for the original owner to have him back, even though she was upset at the thought that he could have been hers - and he so reminded her of an elderly cat she'd had to have put to sleep a year ago.
So Harry (for that's his real name) is home, safe and sound, and we have a happy ending!
Thanks for the great job you do - we did have contact from a lady in Norfolk who was hoping he was her cat - and I notice 'Bootsie' is still missing. Let's hope his story too has a happy ending.
With all good wishes

I got a call from one of the vets practices this morning, a lady who was in with her dog saw my poster, and thought that Elmo might be the cat who had been visiting her garden over the past few days.  She feeds stray cats and foxes, and was surprised to see a Persian cat arriving at feeding time a few days ago.  She could see that he had a collar and tag on, however every time she tried to get close to him he would run off.   So she told me to come to her house tonight at feeding time, to see if the cat would appear.  Anyway I received a call from her a couple of hours ago to say that the cat was in her garden now – so I dropped everything at work and dashed up to her house.  By the time I got there the cat was gone, but had eaten some of the food which she had put out.  There were trees and undergrowth behind her house, so I just pushed my way through and started calling on Elmo.  I got no response for a minute or so, but then I went further back and called again, and heard a little ‘mew’ in response.  I called again, got a louder ‘mew’ and then he came running out of the bushes towards me!  

He is a bit thin, matted and his underbelly was absolutely covered in dry leaves and twigs, but apart from that he is absolutely fine!  He went straight to his scratching post and scratched the life out of it, before running downstairs for a feed.  He wouldn’t stop talking to me and rubbing against me, purring like crazy!  I have left him on the rug in the living room where he is stretched flat out on his back with his paws in the air! 

 I simply cannot believe that my boy is home, I still feel as though I’m in a dream - it just goes to show, you can never lose hope – I had imagined all sorts, that he had been caught by foxes or stolen.  I was beginning to think I was never going to see him again.  He was missing for 2 weeks, a fluffy home-loving Persian with no teeth or inclination to hunt, and he survived!  I hope that this gives some hope to all of the others out there who are still hunting for their missing kitties, I truly did not believe that he could have survived for so long on his own.

 Thanks so much for all your help and advice, we did everything you suggested and it just shows that perseverance does work.
Thanks again and well done on such a fantastic and worthwhile website

Tawny a 4yr old spayed female DSH Tortoiseshell with Green eyes. Tawny has tortoiseshell markings which are Ginger and
Brown intermingled
Hi,

Just to let you know Tawny has now been found, 3 and a half weeks after she went missing.  Although she has lost a lot of weight she is now happily reunited with her owner. 
A very kind person on Warndon Villages spotted a poster in the Local Post Office and linked the picture of Tawny with a cat that had been in her garden and she didn't recognise.  Once she managed to catch Tawny she found the contact details in the canister on her collar and was able to contact my sister who went and picked her up last night.  Tawny was very pleased to see her owner and of course, to get a proper meal!  We will probably never know how Tawny managed to stray so far and what happened to her, but we are just glad she is safely back where she belongs.
Needless to say she is now getting a lot of attention and cuddles!
Many thanks,
Leighanne

'Pepper' missing since 3nd Aug.2007 - 5th Sept.2007
c1920

Pepper a 16yr old spayed DSH female with Yellow / Green eyes
Brown and Tortoise shell coat
 
Home safe and alive after four weeks away is our little cat Pepper who disappeared on August 3. She was found alive and well (but decidedly thinner) on September 5.
Pepper who is 16 years old had managed to cross a railway line and a busy trunk road in her travels before turning up over four weeks later by walking through the cat flap of a house about a mile away. It was a remarkable coincidence that the house happened to be the home of a family of a cat lovers who are also involved in the Cats Protection League. The lady of the house Rowena works at a local vets.
Via the Cats Protection League we were contacted on Friday September 7 th by e-mail from Haworth Cat Rescue which we had visited in our search for Pepper.
That evening we went to Rowena’s home and reunited with Pepper and brought her home.
Pepper seemed to have switched herself into some kind of survival mode and must have been living rough in the month before she turned up at Rowena’s home. She took a little time adjusting to us and to her old home, but remarkably within 48 hours she had settled back in and had become her usual affectionate and chatty self. She had lost a lot of weight, worryingly so, but is now eating well and regularly so we expect her to be back to her previous weight in a few weeks.
In our hunt for Pepper we had leafleted our community, and contacted local vets. We would like to thank all the wonderful people who we know kept an eye out for Pepper on their daily walks and travels to work, and our neighbours who helped with the search. Our thanks also go to the Cats Protection League and Haworth Cat Rescue. We will now be having her identity chipped!
Thanks again
Joan

You might like to add a bit to Pepper's story - finding her owners has been a remarkable set of coincidences.

We had an unwanted tortoise shell cat passed to us by our vets.  The cat was found and handed in Huddersfield but because we use the Hebden Bridge branch of our vets she was transported there and we took her from there.  Shortly afterwards, one of our volunteers was chatting to someone at her keep-fit class and mentioned that her sister had found a stray cat, to which the person who she was chatting wondered if the cat found was her sister's lost cat from Todmorden, which is near Hebden Bridge.  Our volunteer's sister's found cat was ruled out (due to age and colour) but our vol remembered the cat we'd taken from the vets at HB and assumed it was a stray and from the local area, so told her friend about this cat, and she in turn told her sister (Pepper's owner) who came to visit the cat.  Needless to say it wasn't Pepper.  Earlier this week, however, Rowena, who is a volunteer both for us and for the local CP, and coincidentally works at our vets, emailed to ask us to put a found cat on our L&F register.  Remembering Pepper we managed to get her email address from the above-mentioned sister and suggested that she contact Rowena.  The rest, as they say, is history.

Quite amazing really, but I am pleased they are going to get her chipped.  The coincidences wouldn't have been quite so necessary if she had been!

One down, several million to go!

hi sue i have happy news.my concierge was told by a woman about a cat living in the drains in the walls of our flats so he checked it out and it was Mack!!! he is very skinny but after 8 weeks and surviving after being so ill he's amazing.
At the time he went missing he was on steroids and 2 other antibiotics twice a day for his damaged liver and was due to be weened off
I took him to the pdsa and they just said he seems ok just malnourished you'd think he'd be over his fussy eating habits
Im so happy and emotional thank you for caring so much

'For over a week now we have been regularly visited by an unneutered male black kitten/cat, possibly about six months old who has no collar and is very skinny. He is very long-limbed, like a model - and looks like he will grow into a big cat eventually. He is very good-natured. We've named him Skinny Dude...'
We didn't have the pleasure of his company for long, but we'll always be glad that he chose to come and stay with us. Who knows what life he had led before, but in his last year he found good food, a warm place to sleep and lots of love at numbers 40 and 42.
He died peacefully at the vets on July 24th 2007 after a short illness which he endured without complaint.
We'll always remember Dude.

Black with White. Jack looks very much like the Felix cat, with all Black tail, White paws, White bib and strip down his tummy.
Hi Sue, Jack was found three miles from home in a country park. He smelled very strongly of curry. A kind man had seen him around his house and took him to Temple End vets in High Wycombe. They scanned him and hey presto we were reunited. Thank goodness he was chipped. I'd never have found him otherwise I'm sure. He's now safely settled up north with my other half where he is always very contented. And we've also updated his chip record of course!
thanks for your website, I'm sure it reassures many people who are worrying about their pets.

Tribble a 10yr old spayed and chipped DSH female with Yellow eyes.  Ginger and Black Tortoiseshell
Hi Sue,
Great news !!!!
A kind family found Tribble in the vicinity of St Annes Cricket Club.  They took her in and fed her.  She had obviously become quite thin over the last three weeks. 
The family then took her to the Cats Paws centre who immediately scanned for the microchip and got our details.  The family then brought Tribble to our house where she was reunited with our family.  I had just left to attend a week long course in London so have only just seen Tribble since her ordeal and hence the update being a week old.

My family and I would like to thank you for your help and advice over the last month and to also extend our gratitude to Cats Paws and particular thanks to the kind family who brought her back to us. 
In the emotion of being reunited we did not get their name and address.
 
( If these people are looking, please get in touch with Moggy)

Black - Some hair thinning on base of tail and belly. Slight
brown sheen in areas. Very slight build.
Hi Sue,
I just wanted to let you know that after 11 days missing, Senor Vivo came home last night!!!
We heard miaowing just after midnight and went downstairs to find him sitting in the dining room. It was a wonderful sight! He is very thin and has an injured leg, so we're wondering if he was hit by a car then got trapped somewhere afterwards. He has been eating non-stop since getting home and slept next to us all night. His brother, Elvis is very pleased to see him as well!
Your website has given me hope throughout these past 2 weeks, and I read over Home Safe stories every day to keep me positive. I hope this is another story you can add to the list so that someone else reading it doesn't give up.
Thanks again,
Jane

Hi Sue,
He came back. early hours of Sunday morning. on the 11th day he was missing. Dragging his back left leg and very thin but purring and as happy to see me as i was him. He's with the vet today under local,having a proper x-ray. Thank you  very much for putting his details on the site and thanks on behalf of all cat mentalists for running such a worth while website. you're a very good person
Love

leg missing you can see a patch of White on his lower abdomen, he has very long White whiskers and eyebrows
Hi Sue
Please to say BENSON has been found safe a long way away, a young lad rang me on Saturday I just thought it would be another upset of not finding him, but I went along to the area I was told and there he was, he had been there for some time sleeping on a chair that had been thrown out, people got use to him being there, he had got to southend seafront, a place I would not have thought of looking. A person who lives there had gone along to a friend that lived in the area Benson had gone missing, seen the posters that I had put up, and then seen him, I can't believe i've got him back, his meow for some reason is different and he on the thin side, but so pleased to be back. Just a couple of questions seeing as he went missing at my daughter's, i've brought him back home now in Romford how long should I keep him in,? and should I leave him to get back into being home before I take him to be castrated? he has never been in a cattery, but will be going from now on, how will he adjust to it? thank you very much for your support.

Hi Sue,
Sorry for delay in replying, but...great news, Natasha was found yesterday! She'd apparently walked 4.5 miles through woodland and was found by a cat lover!! He'd been looking after her for a few days and his mother worked at one of the shops were Natasha's poster had been displayed!
 
My friend (Natashas owner) is overjoyed!
 

Thank you for your support please let others in the same position know this happy ending, its worth also letting them know that where Natasha ended up there were loads of cat owners and someone had previously said to me that if cats poick up the sent of lots of cats in one area and they are scared they will go there re safety in numbers, it seems that this may have been the case with Natasha, the main thing is she's home now and seems well dispite her long walk!
Thanks again

'Dwight' 2007 - Sept.2007

Now

'Dwight' (he's dirty & white !) a DSH male
All white male cat, no markings.
Quite thin, very dirty, has a gash near the top of his front
leg-has a bit of a limp.
Hi Sue,
Thought I would give you a little update on Dwight. 
After posting his details on your website, we also registered him with the RSPCA & put a collar on him asking any owner to contact us.  Unfortunately no-one got in touch so it appeared our Dwight was well & truly all alone !  Anyway, we kept feeding him, treated him for fleas, worms etc, put a shelter up for him & just kept any eye on him.  It turned out that his gash under his arm looked pretty bad & decided that it was time to get him to the vet.  Things were looking pretty bleak for him, the vet suspected he had FIV & she told us his gash could take multiple surgeries & cost thousands to be fixed.  As things turned out, he tested negative for the FIV & we decided to have a stab at getting the leg fixed.  After keeping him in a cage for a couple of weeks (to make sure he could do absolutely nothing to give the leg the best chance of getting fixed).  Turns out, the leg fixed up first time !!  He’s now been neutered, vaccinated & chipped & is a permanent member of the household !  He’s loving his new life so I think his details can be removed from the website....he’s not lost now !  I’ve attached a more recent picture – I’m sure you’ll agree he’s looking much happier !!

Thanks for your help & also for putting me in touch with Haworth Cat Rescue who have offered me no end of useful advice.
Claire (& Dwight)

...
Yes it’s been a happy ending alright...I couldn’t have wished for a more lovely cat, though I did wonder what on earth I’d done at first especially when our existing cat took one look at him & threw up !  They seem to be getting there now though.

I’m glad we gave the leg a chance now, the vet said the other option could be to cut it off, so lucky for Dwight he healed so well.  The vet was really good though & made sure it all didn’t cost too much.  The vet thinks the injury was caused by him getting his leg trapped in his old collar – I’m amazed a collar could do so much damage.

Yes, put him on the home safe pages & spread the happiness !!

Oh I’ll give Dwight a hug alright, he gets plenty of those nowadays – he’s the worlds biggest lap cat!!

Thanks again....

Hi Sue
Firstly she was actually my next door neighbours cat, but it was easier to put my details in as Sally her owner is an call nurse Well we targeted the area with leaflets and got a phone call yesterday to say and elderly lady had taken Mia in, she's home safe and sound now :-)  thanks for all your tips though, I wouldn't have thought of the vacuum cleaner although we had put out her bedding and a couple of pieces of clothes. And your right about the access, our houses have high  back yard walls and Mia is now unable to climb them, hence she couldn't get back in. Sally has fixed this and put a cat flap in the yard gate this morning Sorry should have let you know sooner but I've only just got back from visiting friends, huge thanks for your help and your wonderful site, it was the first place I headed as soon as I knew she was missing
