  • Try looking or calling for your cat at night when it has become quiet

I found a cat – what should I do?

This can be a tricky one as cats naturally roam and if there is a free meal on offer they’ll take it even if they are well fed at home. I’m sure we’ve all encountered random moggies in our house eating our cats food only to find out they live a few doors down or a street away.

As a rescue we recommend doing some investigation first to see if the cat belongs to someone in the neighbourhood. You can also post on local Facebook pages to see if anyone recognises the cat as it could belong to someone new that has just moved to the area. If you are able to approach the cat you can put a paper collar around it with your details to see if it belongs to someone.

If you come across an injured cat, and you’re able to get it into a carrier box take it to the vets yourself – do not call a rescue. You will not get charged if the cat requires medical attention. The vet will be able to scan the cat for a microchip and attend to the injuries.
