Presume neutered? Check all outbuildings, including empty houses, and cellars. ALWAYS take a SECOND LOOK as some cats will hide in, or behind an object, especially if timid, even though their owners may be present. Put some tuna in her dish, and call her; night/early morning is best. Rattle some treats too. Place her UNWASHED blanket into a clean container, along with your scentd too. Leave in the garden in a sheltered spot, or hang on the washing line if dry; used towels too. Wipe her scent on your garden fences, gates, doors too; anything leading up to hr garden, Try a squeaky, toy as it may attract her attention. Walk around the area, holding an object with her scent on, and rattle some Dreamies. Someone may be feeding her, (Common problem) When it is nightfall, and you are searching, use a strong torch as the light will reflect a cats eyes. Poster around the area, and also post flyers through doors too, Ask around, especially those with children as they can be very observant. Hope Matilda is home very soon.

Use Facebook (set to public and tag yourself in your kitty’s photo so you can follow up any leads from subsequent shares) to share your missing cat. It is ESSENTIAL to include a clear photo, colour/breed/distinguishing features, where s/he has gone missing from (district, town and county) and when your cat was last seen. Say if your cat is chipped and neutered or not. Ask people to share/retweet. Share your cat to any local lost and found pets’pages, on national lost cat pages, on the Facebook pages of any local cat rescue groups, on local vetsand larger community groups. The bigger the audience of the groups you share to the better. Always include your post code and a mobile contact number. Ask everyone to share. If you are not on social media, ask a family member or friendly neighbour to do this for you.

Follow up any and every lead you get until you have absolutely discounted 100% that this is your cat. Remember that most people are spectacularly unobservant and quite capable of identifying a tom as a queen and vice versa.

Contact all the local vets by phone to see if your cat has been brought in injured. KEEP DOING THIS at weekly intervals, as you may not speak to the same person every time, plus your cat may have been brought in the day after you phoned the last time.

Contact all the local cat rescues by phone to see if your cat has been brought in injured. KEEP DOING THIS at weekly intervals, as you may not speak to the same person every time, plus your cat may have been brought in the day after you phoned the last time.

If your cat is chipped, contact the chip company to ensure they have your correct and up to date contact details, especially your telephone numbers. Don’t wait for them to come to you. Alert the chip company that he's missing, put him on animal search and missing pet register as both are free

After a few days, contact the cleansing department of your local council. They often record when the street cleaning services picked up deceased animals in the road. While this may not give you the answer that you want, if they have no record, that is hopeful, and if the worst comes to the worst, at least you will finally know what happened.

Keep checking, keep looking, check and re-check, and keep contacting the vets and the shelters. If you make yourself enough of a pain in the arse, they’ll remember you.

Also check local re-homing and rescue sites in case your cat has been found and is now being offered for re-homing.

If your cat is pedigree (or looks like one!!), check Gumtree and other ‘free’ selling sites just in case your cat has been stolen.

Consider offering a reward, as a last resort, but make sure if you do that you set out the conditions under which it will be paid very clearly. The last thing you need is to get into some sort of Mexican standoff with some meathead who has found your cat and thinks he can screw an extra £100 out of you over and above what you have offered before he even tells you if it’s alive or dead...

Finally, keep a record of everywhere you have advertised your cat so that you can take down posters and update all social media posts with the good news. If your cat wasn’t chipped and neutered, please do both when they return home.

Missing cat tips x

Firstly, check your own home, garden, and the immediate vicinity THOROUGHLY. Cats seldom stray far, but some of them have a positive genius for getting shut in sheds, garages, cars, greenhouses. Check also any standing water-butts, ponds or similiar.

Check under all bushes, deckingand in gardens, using a long stick and a torch if necessary. Knock on neighbours doors and ask them to check sheds/garages/outhouses WHILE YOU WAIT in case your cat has got shut in (cats are incredibly inquisitive!). Ask neighbours to prop open doors so if your cat is scared and hiding s/he doesn't miss the opportunity to get out if the door is only opened briefly.

Your cat recognises the smell of home. Spread hoover contents around the outside of your house. Put your cat’s dirty litter try outside too. Hang dirty washing on your line, put smelly trainers in your garden with any cat bedding. Anything that smells familiar will help guide your cat home if s/he has lost their scent.

Go out looking at night to check, when it is quiet and there is less traffic. Work your way back towards home as you call them, so not to inadvertently lead themfurther away from home. Take a powerful torch. Scatter used cat litter outside and leave out food. If possible, make sure there is a way for your cat to get back in the house even if you are asleep (eg, wedge open the cat flap).

Next check all the surrounding streets, again checking under bushes and in undergrowth. If there are fields/woods nearby, thoroughly search these too.Check any empty houses as cats can get through the smallest of spaces.

KEEP doing all these things as when scared cats go into survival mode and may not even respond to their owner at first.

Make posters/fliers and put them up anywhere and everywhere (eg stuck to telegraph poles and similar). Stick one in the back window of your car. Local shops, post office, pub, local primary schools (small children are incredibly observant) anywhere really. Ask local vets to display a copy. Speak to local postman and dog walkers to ask them to TELL you if they see your cat. Consider printing off enough fliers to put them through people’s letterboxes down your street and in the area. Not everybody is on social media. If there are any distinctive physical conditions or characteristics about your cat, make sure you feature them prominently in any fliers, online appeals, etc.

Alert all vets in the area and give them a description of your cat. Ask local vets to display a poster of your missing cat. Even if your cat is chipped, not all vets routine scan for a chip!!! Chips can also fail or migrate to anywhere in your cat. Ring the RSPCA/cats protection and any rescues in the area as any of these places may end up with him so best to give them a description too. Again, not all rescue centres routinely scan a cat for a chip

See if the local paper runs free lost and found pets ads. Check the found and make sure your pet is listed as lost. Again, not everybody is on Facebook.
