Also, on not a very good note :-
You may not realise that road casualties are usually picked up early
in the morning by Swindon Council to avoid possible distress to
children who may see them on their way to school.
If you have lost your cat or dog, it is worth sending an email to the
Council to see if the animal has been picked up by them.
Send an email to http://www.swindon.gov.uk/environment/environment-animal-welfare/missingpetsk
or you can email Swindon Cats Protection at LostandFound@swindoncp.co.uk.
Please donít ring the Council!
Put notes through doors in your area
Put leaflets or cards in your local shop windows -
with photo if possible
Put a photo of the cat on your gate/in your window
"Have you seen this cat ? "
Say "Large reward". Large is relevant and
what is small to you might be a large sum to another person or child.
The earlier you report your cat missing, the more
likely that he/she will be found. When your cat does return, DO
inform any authorities who have been asked to look for him/her.
