Wylie's mum - my Jazz is just home after five weeks away so i know the pain you are going through now.
Don't worry about putting posters up - I heard that for my area too but the police passed me several times putting posters up and never said anything plus a few people said they had seen council workers putting up posters that had fallen down. My posters were up for five weeks and I was never asked to take one down.
There are LOADS of foxes at my bit - including a very brave one that comes almost up to the door
- as there is a lot of farmland around here. My farmer friend said it is very likely that you would find the wee soul if a fox was the cause of his disappearance so please try not to imagine the worst!
I hope Wylie comes home very soon.
