I have sent the Days Inn an email asking for them to keep an eye out for Lia.  (I gave them my mobile number ... so if they catch her I can pick her up and keep her safe).

Sorry to hear about Lia - I hope she is found safe  :hug:

Just a random idea, but Bishops Stortford is twinned with Friedberg http://www.friedberg-hessen.de/ - I just wondered if you could contact someone there that may be able to find some help from their contacts in Bishops Stortford. It would be good publicity for them.

Sorry if it seems a crazy idea, but anything is worth trying and may create some publicity.

Thanks Tan - what a small world indeed - must have been why she was drawn to Purrs  ;)

I do hope Lia can be found - such a pretty cat.

HI Edd hun

I have emailed Sabrina the Animal Rescue site link to get in touch with them. :)

It's a small world, She lives in the same town in Germany that my dad's best friend from his school days (and is still best friend now) lives. I have been there many many times :)

Sabrina has email me and i have her contact number.

Yes Lia went missing Fri 3rd Sept about 4pm

Tan - Trigger's post about getting Animal Search to do a search and rescue of the area was a good one. Especially as Sabrina has no-one in the area that could look for Lia. Here is the lnk again:
http://www.animalsearchuk.co.uk/search_and_rescue.php

Maybe she could contact Tom at Animal search.?

According to the NationalPetRegister Lia has been missing since Friday 3rd September  :(

http://www.nationalpetregister.org/mpi.php?pet=25151
Aah, I really should pay more attention - didn't see a date on this thread so didn't notice the date on the lost notice there.

I'll keep checking - still looking for Baz so I'm on all the lost/found websites most days anyway.

Have emailed the local newspaper.

Excellent Tan.  I have just a quick search and it seems there is a Days Inn hotel at (or very near) to the services.  I will send them an email and a lost poster tomorrow when I get to work.  If I was a missing kitty I would head for somewhere quiet and a hotel has nice quite grounds and lots of bushes to hide in.

Sabrina I have just sent a message to someone who has found a tortoiseshell cat in Kent http://www.nationalpetregister.org/fp/3952.htm

There is no photo but they think it's a female cat and I have asked them to get in touch with you if they think the cat is Lia.

Fingers crossed and big  :hug: to you.

Animal Search would/could  be invaluable in a situation like this

That is a good idea - can't remember how much they charge but it is a full search and rescue service:
http://www.animalsearchuk.co.uk/search_and_rescue.php

Also now you are back in Germany is the microchip details showing your correct details so you can be contacted and Lia registered as lost in uk.

If any help is needed registering Lia missing with local vets/rescues - happy to start telephoning them tomorrow as Sabrina probably does not know the area.  :hug:  Just let me know if you want me to do that.

I hope you don't mind ... I have cross-posted your plea onto CatChat.org asking for people to help look for Lia.

This is the post:  http://www.catchat.org/discus/messages/7/249094.html?1283980746

I've put the post and her picture on my Facebook page so hopefully it will spread amongst my friends.

Oh my goodness how awful for you ... my heart goes out to you.

Do you still have friends / relatives in the UK who can help you with the search. 

What date did she escape?

Do you use facebook.  If so you can put something on there (if you post the link back here we can then circulate via our facebook pages).

I woudl also recommend putting a post on the National Pet Register http://nationalpetregister.org/index.php

You know... I already did that, but nobody did reply so I am not sure if they put the poster somewhere or not... But thank you anyway ;)

You could email a poster (in Word document format) to the Welcome Break service area to see if they will display one for you - birchanger.enquiry@WelcomeBreak.co.uk

The poster could have her photo, date lost, circumstances, your contact details (do you know anyone in the UK still that would be happy to put their UK mobile number on the poster as some people might be wary of ringing an overseas number), chip no etc

I really feel for you  :hug:

Oh thanks I forgot about the title   :innocent:  I was living in Lincoln, I just passed through Hertfordshire to stop at the motorway services.. So unfortunately I dont know anybody there. I have already contacted a few organisations but I cant stop to try everything I can. So your information are really helpful!! Thank you so much!   :hug:

I've changed the title for you  :hug: It must be such a worry with her being so far away and you being unable to look for her  :hug:

Do you know anyone in Hertfordshire that could look for her or were you just passing through?

I would email her photo and chip details to all the rescues on that link (most have email addresses).

I don't know if you would be able to afford this but there is a company in the UK that will make and distribute posters/flyers of her and knock on doors looking for her/asking if anyone has seen her. If Lia is insured it may well be covered under your pet insurance - http://www.animalsearchuk.co.uk/

hi

i am sorry for my mistakes. Yes I meant 'Bishops Stortford´and I meant that I couldn't look FOR her again.. :)  The microchip details are up to date with the company.

I was living in the Uk before I moved back to Germany taking Lia and her sister with me.. On the way to Germany Lia escaped .. Now her sister lives here without her. Its very bad :( I really hope someone find her.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Best wishes

How awful for you  :hug:

A couple of things, do you mean 'Bishops Stortford (rather than Stratford)?

When you say "I live in Germany now so cant look after her again" do you mean that you couldn't look FOR her again (due to being back in Germany) rather than you can't look AFTER her (ie you are not able to keep her if she is found)?  Sorry,  I appreciate that English isn't your first language but the two mean different things  :hug:

Are your chip details up to date with the microchip company so if she is found and scanned can they contact you.

I would advise the local rescues - Cats Protection (CP), RSPCA and independent ones that she is missing in their area so if she is found they will be aware of her. If it's Bishops Stortford that is in Hertfordshire and here is a list of rescues in that area - http://www.catchat.org/adoption/herts.html

I really hope she is found safe and well  :hug:
