Lost cat from New Whittington

There seem to be a lot of cats going missing recently and it’s very worrying.  We don’t allow any cats out at night, they are all safely indoors and having their supper by seven o’clock.   There are too many night time dangers, cars going fast and hungry foxes with cubs this time of year. Sometimes cats go walkabout or are taken during the day though.

If you get your cat back please let us know.  This is the latest lost one, if you see or hear anything of her please let us know and we’ll pass the details on straight away.

My cat Squeak went missing on Saturday 30th April, she is longish haired, white with brown tail, ears and nose.   She went missing from the  New Whittington area in Chesterfield.

Any news – please ring 01246 455777 or mobile 0743 2071122.

I’m wondering if you could help me? Yesterday (7th April 2016) my 5 month old black and white cat went missing from the Chesterfield area. She has black legs and white paws, with longish hair. Would it be possible for you to put an advert up to try to safely get her back home? Thank you for reading. 

Please get in touch if you see or hear anything of this cat and we’ll let the owner know right away.  Email via contact page please.

She’s back – dusty, dirty, hungry and tired out.   Thank you for all your help in spreading the word.   This lovely cat went missing last week, the owners have been searching for her. It’s not like her to disappear.  Then they were told that a dog had attacked her so she may be injured.  There is a reward for her return or for news of her.  If you know what’s happened please get in touch.  She is a very special cat, quite large and everyone is desperate for her safe return.

Please phone 07540 427089 or phone Pet Samaritans and we’ll pass the info on.  01246 455777

Lost cat please help find him


cats - merlin

It’s very upsetting when a much loved cat goes missing.  Hopefully he or she has wandered off and will come back.  There’s a possibility that the cat has been knocked down – ring all the local vets just in case he’s been taken in, also take a poster in so they have a record.  It might be the worst news and the cat has suffered fatal injuries, in this case the Council Cleansing Department may have details  so check with them.

Possibly he’s been picked up, perhaps by children, and taken  home.  Newsagents and post offices are places to put up a poster and offering a reward gets attention.   If he’s an old cat Mr. Fox may have grabbed him, foxes frequently attack cats and we’ve seen this happen.  It’s not certain though and some of them ignore our feline friends, while others see them as a food source.

Hopefully none of the above has happened to a cat called Noodles who has recently gone missing.  Please help his owners find him and get him safe back home.  Here is what they told us:

On Thursday 30th April 2015 our 9 year old grey male cat went missing from our home in Breadsall, Derby. He is not chipped or wearing a collar.
He is very timid and a placid cat and a very much loved part of our family. His name is Noodles if you should ever find him please contact me day or night
we love and miss him so much. Thank you

If you have any news please get in touch with us in the first instance – we’ll pass details on straight away.  (The pictures aren’t of Noodles – we don’t as yet have one.)

Pet road deaths

Perro - black & white 2

R.I.P.  It’s so sad when we lose a pet, they are part of the family.   Even worse when we don’t know what’s happened to him or her.   Dogs escape, cats go roaming and if they don’t come back home we will be wondering about them forever.  Up to a few weeks ago there was no requirement on Local Authorities to screen pets who had been knocked down and killed.  They were taken to the Highways Depot and disposed of without being checked for a microchip.   It was then impossible to notify the owner and bring closure.

Now it’s mandatory for the Local Authority to check any pet road casualty and notify the owner what’s happened.    A lady from Sheffield whose pet poodle ‘Harvey’ was knocked down by a car only a few minutes after going missing, has won her battle with the government to make Local Authorities scan all pets and, if not microchipped, take a description of the pet.   If any cat or dog goes missing you can now check with the Council to see if he or she has been taken in as a road casualty.   It’s best to know even if it is the worst news possible.
