thxs for the replies- without delving too much into the ladies personal life- unfortunately she was moved to her new home under emergency circumstances due to imtimidation etc so i think it may be impossible for her to return to that area herself?
i live very near however so i can drop in a note for new tenants and adjust my usual route walking to town so i do a little wander past and see if he is anywhere about.
Ive suggested the posters, contacting vets, rescues etc too and pointed her over to here as well in the hope he does catch someones eye. closer up (sorry couldnt get the pic bigger as copied off facebook) he looks like hercule Poirot
so im sure he would catch attention if anyone aware he was missing were to spot him.
sadly he is not "done" and with the amout of ferals in local areas i worry about how adept he is if hes gone off on a prowl
