Our cat, Sherlock has been missing since Wednesday 4th September.
He has a distinctive white "moustache" and only has one eye (see photo)
He's getting old (12) and has become a bit prone to wandering.
If you've seen him or he has been staying with you, would appreciate it if you could give us a call.

Sorry, afraid not.This one seems younger (and both eyes intact).Hope you find Sherlock.
Following up on this post we still have this very people friendly and comfortable cat wandering in and out of the house. Does anyone know which local vet could scan to see if there is an identity chip?
Any vet will scan for a chip.
Also, if he/she has a collar, attach a bit of paper with your phone number asking owner to contact you - can may be just very sociable... and not lost
Thanks for the reply Anka. Do you know which vet is nearest vet to Stanhope Gardens?
The cat (a he - we are pretty sure from basic inspection!) is not disappearing for any length of time and been in and around our house for a few days and was definitely in need of food. So don't think he is returning home at the moment.
Sorry, i am on the other side of FP I am afraid so no idea about vets your way.
My cats are well fed but are always "in need of food" when some if offered. Often see them coming out of next door's upstairs window, they visit several houses and beg everywhere.
Cats are crafty like that.
He probably has a home but is chancing it anywhere like cats do.
If he does not loo injured or ill, should not really be feeding him as this only encourages him to keep on coming back.
Please just google the nearest vet and have him scanned if you are worried.
