Thank you janiejewel, I passed your message to Cosmo owners who have left a message with Cats Protection. They have seen Cosmo a couple of times but not been able to catch him so they will follow up again to see if Cats Protection can help with trapping. They have also managed to have the other cat, Gizmo, scanned & now have his microchip number so we are looking to assist with Petlog in the hope that Cosmo's microchip number can be traced as it is believed they would likely have been chipped at the same time x

Thanks Lisa. If you think it was Cosmo who was sighted, and you still need to self isolate, I would now contact you local Cat Protection. and ask if you could borrow a cat trap. Explain to them that Cosmo`s owmer has auitsm. They should be able to set it themselves of course. Believe it or not some people will take a fancy to someone`s cat, and try to hide it in their homes. I have known this happen until the thief saw the owner and let the cat go. Paws xd.

The number you need to phone for Cat Protetion is B14. is 0345 371 1854. If no one is there leave a message, and they shoud get back to you when they can. Keep us posted xLast edited: 2020-05-15 11:44:34 by janiejewel1649

It seems someone is feeding him. Also when leaving Cosmo`scent out also put his brothers scent out as well. As I have said in another post, best not to leave litter trays out as other cats may use it and it could confuse and upset Cosmo Paws xd.

Thank you both, Cosmo's owner isnt sure if he is microchipped, they rehomed him & his brother before Christmas but due to an unfortunate series of events their vets hadnt been able to scan him to confirm & organise if he wasnt. If his brother is chipped it is likely Cosmo is too, however due to vulnerability the family is self isolating & this cannot currently be organised to check. There are some possible reports of him in the vicinity & scent has been left outside in the hope he will be encouraged to find his way home if this is him. The family are not on social media but I have checked some local groups & other sites x

Yes it`s always best to check FOUND page, as sometimes a microchip can slip. Check other sites too. Such talent. Fabulous drawing:-) Paws xd.

Good he is neutered, as he shouldn`t be too far away, unless he has climbed into a vehicle. But the two most common reaons why a cat may go awol is first of all, they maybe trapped in an outbuilding; cats can survive without food; sometimes for weeks. They will lick on relevant items to keep themselves hydrated, such as an opening on a freezer door. Cats also like the smell of wood which is why sometimes they are attracted to sheds etc. Another reson why a cat goes awol is if someone is feeding them. One cat posted as LOST for THREE MONTHS was found by the owners brother only ten minutes from his home. A woman had been feeding him fresh chicken every day. Another cat that was posted as LOST for SIX MOMTHS had decided to move in with an elderly lady not too far from his home (Presume she had been feeding him) He was reunited with his owner after the lady died. Cats can be very elusive. And cats have a very strong sense of smell which is about 20 times stronger than ours, and can smell quute a few streets away. Leave no stone unturned. Paws xd.Last edited: 2020-05-06 17:24:55 by janiejewel1649

Assume neutered? Check aLL outbuuildings inludibng empty houses, and cellars THOROUGHLY as some cats will hide in or behibd an object within especially if timid. Cats can stay very stil, and quiet in certain circumstances. They are renowned for it. Bear in mind too that cats have very flexible spines which rotates, so they can squeeze into very small spaces (About 2"/3" wide 7/7.5cm) So has he managed to climb into a partially opened window, and is now trapped? Exit can be difficult; depends on the drop. Check trees; any deckings too. Empty contents of the hoover onto the garden as his scent will be there; litter tray contents too. PLEASE DO NOT leave the litter box/tray out as other cats may use it, and it could confuse, and upset the cat. Put some tuna/sardines or chicken in his dish, and call him; night/early morning is best. Rattle some treats too. (Just because you can`t see a cat, it doesn`t mean they aren`t around) Place his UNWASHED blanket into a clean continer along with your scent too. Leave in the garden in a sheltered spot, or hang on the washing line if dry; used towels too. Wipe his scent on your garden fences,gates, doors too; anything leading up to the garden. Try a squeaky toy as it may attract his attention. Take a good walk around the area, hoding an object with his scent on, and rattle some Dreamies, someone maybe feeding him. (Common problem). When it`s nihtfall, and you are searching use a strong torch as the light will reflect a cats eyes. Poster around the area, an post flyers through doors too. If possible post in shops; post offices too. And is there a dominant cat in the area? As sometimes they will chase a less confident cat out of their own territory. And the chased cat will not return until they think it`s "Safe" enough for them to do so. Post a LOST CAT ad in a National newspaper in case he has climbed into a vehicle. which isn`t that uncommon for cats to do. If Cosmo isn`t neutered he could have gone seeking a mate, and they will sometimes stay away for days, and days. Paws, and fingers xd.Last edited: 2020-04-21 16:27:16 by janiejewel1649
