don't go knocking while THE MATCH is on though :shify:

very good point!

Almost 200 leaflets printed so far, now time to distribute. Offering a reward in the hope people may be more tempted to check for me. Fingers crossed i get a lead and also that i dont get a lot of prank calls. x

:luck: for tomorrow, let us know how you get on  :hug: As it's Sunday a late afternoon door-knock might be best (say after 5pm) as all shops/supermarkets will be shut so more likely to catch people home.

she would just hide in a corner, she has been known to even hide in the flat when peeps are around until i go searching; she does respond to rattling the cat biscuits though.

 :thanks: feeling much more prepared for tomorrows search now.... ive even stopped crying for a while now which is always a bonus! x

If she is a nervous kitty I would ask the owners if you can come with them to check .... don't assume she will run out of an open door.  Often a nervous furbabe will hide in a corner rther than run past a stranger and risk getting caught  ;)

Keeping everything crossed for you ... she looks adorable.xx

Yep, I was going to say the same. Does she come to treats being rattled or similar? If so take a packet with you to shake.

she is affectionately known as "little sod" (thats the polite version!) due to the ammount of mess and havoc she creates.

im hoping she is just hiding out in a shed, she is very timid even when someone comes into my flat. I will definately ask them to check whilst i wait though, having read stories on here that is often where they hide.

thank you for your advice, i appreciate someone taking the time to help  :)

I didn't mean for you not to be worried as it's early days, just that she's likely to be close by so much more likely to be found sooner :hug:

As it's been nice weather then she may have got herself shut in a shed/garage so well worth door knocking the local houses asking them to check their sheds/garages while you wait. Best to take someone with you if you can.

Love that pic of her, she looks very mischievious!  :Luv2:

Thanks for the info  :), im working my way through the list of tips and tricks.

She is spayed, so shes not gone off in search of a man!

I know its early but its so unlike her... she goes out for an hour at a time, only when im in and wont venture further than my court.  :scared:

Even her step sister is missing her and they only "tolerate" each other at best. x

Sorry to welcome you to Purrs in such worrying circumstances  :hug:

Have you seen the long list of hints & tips to help get her back? They really are tried and tested and have helped so many cats be found and reunited with their owners.

I know it must seem like an age but it really is very early days yet  :hug: She is very beautiful, hope you're reunited soon enough  :hug:

My little girl has gone missing and i am beside myself.  :'(
She didnt want to come in thurs eve so I decided to go to bed and leave my window open for her to come in (i live in a ground floor flat)
I woke up around 3am Friday morning and remember seeing her, she then escaped back through the window and hasnt been seen since.

She is never normally out at night and i feel so guilty for not waiting up for her to come back in.
 :(
Ive put up posters around my court and have listed her on various websites as well as doing a wander around the surrounding blocks of flats.
Tomorrow I am leafleting all surrounding roads.
I havent stopped crying since she went and i just want her home, shes quite timid but very inquisitive.
This is horrible- Come home Snowball, mummy loves and misses you loads xx
