You could try Colin Burcher who used to work as a police detective in Surrey, where he still resides. He now works as a Pet Detective. he has had much success in finding stolen pets, whilst in the police force. His side kick is in the shape of a black Cocker Spaniel named Molly who has been specially trained at a Dog Detective school to "Sniff out lost cats" and is believed to be the only dog in the UK to ne able to do this with her strong sense of smell, and has helped many cats be reunited with their owners. Although a private company for those on low income/pension etc, money donated by helpers goes towards any searches etc. He is also willing to to give advice over the phone. His details; email is info@thepetdetectives.com Phone 01403 753 463. Just a thought Paws xd.

How nice that Butler plays with other cats. Last edited: 2021-02-23 17:39:44 by janiejewel1649

Each of my closes neighbours have 2-4 cats each!

They are all very friendly though and Butler has been seen playing with them.

We are out calling and all times of day. Neighbours have been checking their sheds and cameras. Some have even allowed us to check ourselves.

We will keep trying and drop leaflets to neighbours when they arrive (I’ve ordered some)

Thanks again for your help

Hi RebeccaW Forgot to say is there a dominant cat in the area? As sometimes they will chase a less confident cat out of cats own territory. However the chased cat will not return until they think it`s "Safe" enough for them to do so. Also when searching for Butler, wear the same perfume/deodorant say that you use on a day to day basis as he will recognize the scent, and your the one he trusts. Sometimes too a person will take a fancy to someone`s cat and try to hide it in their house. I have known this happen until the cat napper saw the owner searching for his pet, and returned the cat. A cat on this site only recently posted as missing for FIVE MONTHS was found. Someone had been hiding him in their house. So keep vigilant; just in case Paws xd.Last edited: 2021-02-23 11:36:12 by janiejewel1649

Thank you for the tips. Yes he is neutered.

Also when checking outbuilding, take further checks as cats can stay very still, and quiet when trapped. They are renowned for it. Ask family, friends, and neighbours to share as well as DL Twitter too. Paws xd.

Is BUTLER neutered? If not may have have gone seeking a mate
Check ALL outbuildings including empty houses, and cellars THOROUGHLYU as some cats will hide, in or behind an object within, especially if timid. Bear in mind too that cats have very flexible spines, so they can squeeze into very small spaces (About 2" wide) so has he managed to squeeze into a partially opened window,. and is now trapped? Exit can be more difficult; depends on the drop. Check trees; any decking too. Put some tuna/sardines or warm chicken in his dish,. and call him. Just because you can`t see a cat, doesn`t mean they aren`t around. Place his UNWASHED blanket into a clean container, along with your scent too. Leave in the garden in a sheltered spot, or hang on the washing line if dry; used towels too. Empty contents of the hoover onto the garden as his scent will be there; litter contents too. DO NOT lave the litter box/tray outside as other cats may us it, and it could upset, and confuse the cat. Wipe his scent on your garden fences; gates; doors too; anything leading up to the garden. Try a squeaky too, as it may attract his attention. Take a good walk around the area, taking with you his UNWASHED blanket, and rattle some Dreamies, Someone may be feeding him. (Common problem). When it`s nightfall, and you are searching use a strong torch as it will reflect a cats eyes. Poster around the area. Post flyers through doors too. Post in shop; post offices too. Consider posting a LOST CAT as in a National newspaper. in case he has climbed into a vehicle, which isn`t that unusual for cats to do. Paws xd.

Postcode incorrect should be RM16 not RH16 so I have changed this now.
