Lost Cat Advice

Check our FOUND cat listing to see if anyone has reported seeing/found your cat. If your cat is not listed in the FOUND cats then we are here to help as much as possible to reunite you with your cat.

If you would like your LOST cat to be listed on our website, please supply us with the following information so that we can complete a profile of your cat on our LOST page. Either fill in the “I’ve lost my cat” online form on the left or phone us on 020 8763 0072 or email lostfound @ croydoncpcats.org.uk with the following information:

Please also email a recent photograph as an attachment (jpeg format)

NB: We do not publish your name or contact details on our website, only the details of the lost and found cats. If your cat is found or returns home PLEASE remember to contact us and let us know.

What happens next?

We will enter your details onto the Branch’s database of lost and found cats. We will then search to see if a match can be found. If we find a match we will contact you and let you know.

There are other things you can do to assist in the search for your missing cat. At Cats Protection we understand how traumatic it can be when a much-loved pet suddenly goes missing. Follow the advice below to aid your chances of finding him safe and well.


Cats are well known for their curiosity and ability to find unlikely sleeping places, so check the following places:


There are several ways of letting people know that your feline friend is missing: Distribute leaflets to local shops, and push them through letter boxes in your street and in the surrounding area. Include photo, details and contact number. If you would prefer to use Croydon Cats Protection's Helpline phone number (020 8763 0072) instead of your own, you may do so. Contact local schools, newspapers and social networking sites. Use local notice boards including a recent photograph of your cat.


You can also let individuals and organisations know – don’t underestimate the power of word-of-mouth communication. Contact:

Offer a reward

If you decide to do this, make sure you say ‘large reward’. The word is relevant and what is small to you might be large to another person, particularly another child. Remember not to include the amount you are offering. Depending on the provider, your pet insurance may cover the cost of this.

And finally...

Please remember that the earlier you report your cat as missing, the more likely it is that he will be found. Also, take note of the following: When your cats is found, inform any people or authorities who have been asked to look for him. Cats Protection recommends that all cats are microchipped. This is harmless and makes it easier to trace the owner of found cats. Cats Protection advises owners to neuter their cats. Un-neutered toms are more likely to roam and unneutered queens are known for finding quiet places to give birth – therefore increasing the chance that they could become lost.
