Good news Tubbs(snowball) was reunited with its owner on 31/12/2009. He (not she as I originally thought) had been missing since 2/12/2009 and had travelled 2 miles from his home.
After taking tubbs(snowball) to the vet for a microchip scan the owner was contacted there and then and was very grateful as they assumed he was gone forever.
The owners of Snowball (Tubbs, Frosty) canvassed their area of Ivybridge, and contacted their vets also. But on the off chance they placed a flyer in their original vets (the one I took snow to) and was identified by the chip also albeit a very young pic of snow on a flyer.
With the help of my children and children in the street we canvassed neighbours and placed a flyer in the local shop, for snows owners, to no joy.
Where Snow lives is the other end of the village therefore snow's appearance was a mystery, until the visit to the vets. Chipping any animal is a godsend. We are just grateful that his owners chipped snow and he wasn't abandoned.
Yours very happily

RIP 'Monty' Missing 22. Nov.2009 - 24.Dec.2009
Monty a 3yr old neutered long haired male with Green eyes
Black with White chest / belly and feet..
Thank You for getting back to me. Unfortunately Monty has died. We found his body in the local park on Xmas eve. It appears that he had been intentionally killed by someone, or something. As his body was completely unmarked, but his beautiful bushy tail had been removed. We pray that he didn't suffer too long during his final moments.
We will all miss him so much.
It is thought that this incident could easily have been caused by a traffic accident, however - If anyone can offer any further information regarding the cause , we'd be happy to listen, in confidence if needbe.
please contact us at MyMoggy

Black and White: Mainly Black with White paws and White chest
The BEST news, Milly is back. At 5.45 this morning she just came through the catflap.
She was a little dusty but she didn't look malnourished or anything (I had imagined her wasting away, locked up in a little-used garage within ear-shot of our calling but with no means of escape).
She has been been running about, almost hyper actively, for the last hour, in and out of the house as usual and been for food a bit more often than usual, but doesn't look any worse for wear.
Thank you so much for your support, it meant a lot that you had taken the time to look at the area. It was comforting to know at least someone else cared.
MIlly has just come into the room as I write this and she has got her 'Christmas collar' on.
Thank you so much again, we can now get Christmas back on track.

RIP . 'Terry' missing 27.Nov.2009 - c.8.Dec.2009
Terry an 18mth old neutered and chipped Burmese male with Green eyes
Thanks so much for getting back to me but I am afraid our boy is longer with us. After a week of searching, posting leaflets and putting up posters we had a call from a farmer who said he had found him in his woods. Although we were 95% sure it was him we took him to the 24hr vets and had his microchip scanned. The vet confirmed that it was him and that there were no signs of there being a fight or accident. I guess we will never really know.
I miss him more than words can say and the house feels very different without him. His loss is far more than I can explain and at the moment I just feel like we will never get over it.
I just wanted to say to that the service you offer has been of great comfort to us

Tabby: Black & Grey with Greyish Brownish tummy and some White around mouth
Dear Sue, just to let you know that my cat Bruce who went missing from RG26 was found alive yesterday in the Mortimer area. I think someone had been feeding him on a farm and then became concerned that he had gone quiet and had thought he was local and would wander home. Anyway they took him to a local vet who scanned him and contacted me. He is very thin, dehydrated and full of fleas. I went to see him yesterday and he didn't seem to recognise me but I guess he was in shock and probably exhausted. Thank you for your help.

Victoria an 8mth old entire DSH female with Yellow & Green eyes
Black with white chest...three white paws and one black and white. This is my story about Victoria.
Today is the day i will remember for ever and ever.....
I got up as normal at 5am to get ready to go and look for Victoria
armed with food,catmilk...off i went.
Looking in all the bushes calling softly like Sue told me to.
Walking slowly home so if she was around,she would smell my scent.
I arrived home feeling so down that i had not found any trace of my Victoria....it has been 20days
that there has been no sign.
I went to work thinking must put more posters out....try somewhere new this time... yes thats the way forward
I had a very chat last night with our lovely Sue......We talked about alot of things...i could have spoke to
her for hours...i found her so easy to talk...and she so careing
We ended our chat with me saying...Sue i have done door to door leaflets.....posters and still nothing.
Jan she said have you heard of the word Dowser i replyed no... but i will try anything to try and
get my baby back for christmas....Have look on the web...you must look for one that is for pets.
We said goodbye......I thought Dowser now lets see....so i searched and searched but couldn't find what
i was looking for.....Then my cat called La-tina jumped on my lap...must have hit the keys or something
beacause there in front of me was Dowser for pets GREAT....lets have a go.
I found that you could email...with no charge.
I put a short message that said.....Can you help me find my Victoria who has been missing for so long.
Pressed enter...and thought now you have to wait for a reply.
I checked my emails so many times but nothing
So that takes us back today monday the 7th of December
Checked emails and they it is was the email i had been waiting for.
The email from a man called James asked me to email back with more about Victoria.
so i did.
In the middle of the afternoon another email from James arrived.
It said Victoria will be home in less that a week.
as i read it for the second time...the phone rang....
i think i have found your cat...
you only live 3mins away...please come now and see.
I couldn't get out of the house quick enough.
And sure enough..as the lady open the door...there she was my baby my Victoria.
She was a liitle worried but we cuddled and she started to purr.
I must say the kind lady didn't want the reward.
We are home now one big very very happy family....Victoria is looking good a few fleas..but hey i can handle that
I would like to say a big thank you to Sue for all her kindness while Victoria was missing....i couldn't have got her back without
you Sue thats a fact...........Everything now is PURR-FECT Jan
Seems to me that Victoria is rather pleased to be home

Alex a 10yr old DSH neutered male with Green eyes
Tabby: hes a Golden Tabby colour. he has half an ear this is due to having half of it removed as it had a tumour on it.
Hi sorry ive been really busy in the search of finding my cat and ive hardly been online. thankfully after 4 nights away he has been returned to me
We think he was trapped as he absolutley stank of diesel or oil although when i cleaned him with wipes there was hardly any residue of anything on him so he must have just been in somewhere with a car or somthing. i put leaflets through all the houses around me and i got a pnoecall late at night saying that they thought alex was in their garden sitting on a fence. i could hear him meowing in the background whilst on the phone and my heart sank as i thought Alex doesn't meow he just kind of squeaks. so i asked them to see if they could pick him up and put him somewhere safe and went to see if it was him. i really thought it wasn't going to be him but was so pleased when it was. i was surprised by how much weight he had lost but he is perfectly fine although he is still scared of going outside now. so we go out with him for the time being bless him.

He went out to check his shed and sure enough Eccles was in there asleep on a pile of old blankets!
Thanks so much for the service you provide!

We think she was on her way home she was part feral and very adventurous, and i would never have changed that about our Tilly, she was free to express her self, and though she was a wild little whirlwind at times, she was so loving and warm.
it will take some time for the tears to stop, but at least we found her and she is home.we buried her in her favourite spot, so she is with us always.
i want to thankyou so much for your help and continuous support sue, it is not easy when you love something so much, and you dont know what to do with yourself. now i know what madeline's parents must have felt and still feel, a person is something different and the inormity great, but Tilly was a big part of the family, and me and my family are grateful for all your help.

This is an email to let you know that Ela the Blue British SHorthair has been found safe and well yesterday (03.11.09).
She was found three streets away form where she went missing, she is quite skinny but otherwise ok. It seems she has been trying to fend for herself during the two and a half weeks she has been missing for. She was found the day before we were due to move house which is extremely licky. We are very happy to have her back and she is settling in well in her new house with the other cats.
I would like to thankyou for all the help you have given is in our search for Ela.

Hi Sue...sadly i had to take "bobcat" (which turned out to be an old lady) into the vets on sunday as she was in pain...the vets said she was old,with kidney/thyroid problems and would prob not make it through any treatment so the most humane thing would be to put her to sleep..which was very sad,but for the best i think...thanks for coming back to me,..Sam

Black and White
: White tummy. Has black outline round his eyes. Quite long and big for a cat his age. Very nervous
Thanks for email. I've actually since managed to find him! I put some fliers up and he was spotted nearby. I then went close to where he was spotted and called for him and he eventually came out of hiding and managed to lure him back into his cat basket with some food.
He's been quite jumpy since back home and is miaowing constantly but hopefully he will settle back in soon.
Thanks again for your help.
'Crystal' missing since 27.Sept.2009 - 26.Oct.2009
Crystal a 13yr old spayed Long Haired Siberian Forest female
Tortoiseshell: Shades of black brown and orange but with very distinctive white lower face, bib and paws.Very white whiskers.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all your help, advice, care and consideration with regard to our lost Chrissie (tortie and white 13 year partially blind female lost from Saxilby, Lincoln on 27 September), I am sure you will be as pleased as we are to know that she has been found safe and well after 4 weeks wandering. A lady about half a mile away on the opposite side of the same road rang to say she recognised our photograph as a cat she had seen hiding behind their garage. With a bit of enticing we managed to get Chrissie out and by the time we backed the car into our drive she was purring in my wife’s arms. Chrissie is slowly settling back into her old surroundings and looking for familiar ‘smells’. The other three cats are a little apprehensive. Her brother cautiously sniffs her but seems to accept her, the other (young) male is far more suspicious and keeps looking at her quizzically. The young (previously feral) female is extremely unsure and hisses when they meet; she went from being the subservient female in the house to being the only female in the house for the last 4 weeks and now has to accept an older female back again.
Chrissie is much. much, thinner than she used to be and we will, of course, be taking her to the vet once she has settled in for a couple of days, a) for a general check up and b) to follow up on her blindness and blood pressure conditions. As you might expect her ventures out of the house over the next few weeks will be supervised and very closely monitored for several months to come.
We are extremely grateful for all the consideration shown by almost everyone we have come into contact with over the past 4 weeks and for all the help publicity and advice we have received.
Again, our eternal gratitude and words can not describe the pleasure we get from writing to you with news of a positive outcome.
Our very best regards Reg & Flo Hewitt

'Harley' missing since 27.Sept.2009
Harley a 2yr old chipped and spayed DSH female with Big Yellow eyes
Thick Black coat
I am sorry I thought I had already emailed you. Thank you for placing my advertisement and also all your help.
The good news is that Harley has been found.
My father had been out looking for her at the weekend and found her about 3 miles away.
We are in a built up area but there is lots of farmland around about. We know that she does usually venture to the place that she was eventually found, however we think she possibly got disorientated as the fields had been very full of crops, then all of a sudden, the farmer flattened them, so my theory is that she didn’t recognise the field to come over to get back home.
She seemed a bit lost and a bit hungry but she is now very happy to be home.
Am so happy. Thank you for all your help and all the good work that you do.
RIP Cisco missing 8.Oct.2009 - c.18.Oct.2009
A 5yr old DSH neutered and chipped Tabby male with Green eyes
Typical Tabby, Stripey pale Brown with Cream. White under belly
Thanks so much for the update, but sorry to report that we found Cisco dead a few days ago.
He wasn’t that far from home, but over a main-ish road, in an area where we found out he’d played a lot. We presume hit by a car, and crawled into the bushes to die.
Anyway, we are glad that at least we found him, and he’s buried in the garden.
Thanks so much for your help, and kind words,
Westbury on Trym BS10

'Arthur' Found Feb.2007 - 2009
'Arthur' around 4-5yrs old. An all Black DLH male with Yellow eyes.
Not skinny, but coat a bit patchy (mange??) Very wary at first, now becoming more confident and loving attention, stroking etc.
I did have one reply in response to your notice, and I also informed all the local vets of Arthur's presence in our garage, but on investigation, it wasn't the same cat (cat of the lady who replied was castrated and Arthur wasn't)
After 3 months' living in the garage, Arthur's timidity was gradually overcome- he realised we weren't going to kick him, I think. Eventually he ventured in through the cat-flap and started to sleep in the kitchen. We got him checked over by vet, de-fleaed, de-wormed, vaccinated and castrated. For 18 months he lived in the kitchen while our original two cats were confined to the rest of the house (they hated the new boy and tried to drive him away.) Eventually we were able to let him into the rest of the house, and the 3 cats now tolerate each other with only the occasional growl and hiss. So life is much easier not having to remember to keep the kitchen door shut all the time.
Arthur has grown sleek and handsome. He is the most affectionate cat I have ever had- clearly very grateful for being rescued from a miserable existence on the street. He has a runny-eye problem which the vet has not been able to sort out, and sometimes gets fur-balls, but apart from that has no problems. At about 10.30 p.m. he makes it clear that it's time to go to bed, and follows us around, jumping into my arms whenever he gets a chance, (makes teeth-cleaning difficult, with a purring, nuzzling cat in your arms) until we are in bed, when he snuggles up on the duvet on top of me, or between the two of us, and snores away the night. He has an uncanny ability to spot where the hot water bottle is and then to lie on top of it.
So although Arthur was not re-united with his previous owner, he has gained a good home and two devoted new owners.
Best wishes for the good job you are doing re-uniting lost cats with their owners.
Yours sincerely, Rosemary King
'Scratch' found 25.Sept.2009 - 12.Oct.2009
'Scratch' a DSH male age unknown with Yellow eyes
Black with a few stray Grey hairs. Looks and sounds like a siamese cross.
Very thin, right ear bent over and crumpled, sore front leg and generally looks in need of attention
Funny you should email - I was just thinking about updating you.
I found his owners. He doesn't live a million miles away and is just a bit old. He seems to have managed a good trick of looking like he needs a bit of attention as some other neighbours also felt sorry for him and took him to a vet. He's been fed by about 3 different people!
His owners have confirmed that he is fine and his ear is an old injury.
'Puss Puss' missing 25.Sept.2009 - 10.Oct.2009
Puss Puss a 5yr old DSH neutered male
Thanks for advertising Puss Puss as missing. I just wanted to let you know, He was in a serious car accident on Saturday morning but a great guy found him, and rang rspca. They said they would be upto 6 hours so this amazing man sat with him from 7.30am until 9.30am as he didn't drive and didn't know the area as he was house sitting for his friend. At 9.30am another amazing man walked passed to post a letter and offered to take PussPuss to the vets.
On arrival, the vet said he was in such a bad way that they wanted to put him to sleep but thanks to the men, they agreed to try to save him. I found out this on the Sunday and thank god, I have now got him home.
He is still in quite a bad way, has 2 breaks in his pelvis, smashed bladder and internal injuries but the vet said he is now out of danger,. He is in a cage for at least 12 weeks but is looking so much better already.
Although I found Puss myself, if it wasn't for the likes of yourself, I would have gone completely out of my mind with worry. Thanks for your time and trouble in advertising for Puss Puss. Keep up the good work.
Best wishes Sarah
Everyone - please send get well vibes for PussPuss
& a huge thankyou to a couple of absolute 'saints' out there.
'Gilbert' missing since 8th Aug.2009 - 12.Oct.2009
Gilbert a 12yr old neutered and chipped DSH male with Green eyes
Black and White: with White nose and very big White whiskers.
Wearing his Pink collar with ID when he went missing from Tyne Street.
Possibility of his having hitched a lift anywhere between BS2 and BS16
Just to let you know, we found Gilbert today!!!! He was handed into a vet in Fishponds by someone who thought he might be a stray, and they scanned his microchip (and the rescue place we got him from contacted us). We have just picked him up. He is very skinny and missing a few patches of fur, but otherwise was as happy to see us and as we were to see him. A happy ending!
Thank you for all you help and helping us never give up.
Very best wishes
Just heard that our Gilbert passed away last year (2012)
RIP Puddin' missing 11th Sept.2009 - Oct.2009
Puddin a 2yr old neutered Persian male with Amber eyes
Brown In true light he is the colour of old Copper on his top coat. Underneath he is paler. He has his summer coat which is sleak and shiny on top but still retains fluffy baby fur underneath which is a lilac smoke..
Pudding victim of RTA, now at the bridge - happily waiting...
My husband and the Insurance Company have since rung the chap that originally called in response to the Gazette Advert. He now admits that he did put Pudding in the bin for collection on 14.09.09 and had not called the Council. The description he has given fully confirms it was my Pudding so I have now resolved myself to the fact he has gone. Ive come to terms with it now but its funny how the mind deals with loss, I dream about him most nights but he never answers me when I call him nor does he turn his head round, he just keeps grooming himself in a lovely garden. My husband thinks Ive lost the plot but its my way of dealing with it I suppose.
I would like to thank you for your help and continued support. Please let me know if I can assist you and MYMOGGY in any way.

'Gandor' missing 23.Sept.2009 - 7.Oct.2009
Gandor a 1yr old DSH neutered male with Green / Light Brown eyes
Tabby with Black stripes Brown chin, White chest, White
Thanks for your email.
My cat Gandor turned up on Wednesday morning (7th of October) 2 weeks to the day after he went missing! I am absolutely over the moon and life is all good again. I hate to admit that I had almost given up hope of him coming home, so the morning I heard his big, loud voice shouting to get in, I almost didn't believe it. I was too scared to go back to sleep again in case I woke up and it had been a dream (I had had a dream a couple of hours earlier of that same thing and was devastated to wake up and find it was only a dream).
I think he must have been stuck in someone's shed or garage as his fur was dry, but he was very, very skinny. Since he came home, he has been drinking a lot of cat milk, eating a little canned food and a little dried food, but has been very keen on tuna, which I know I shouldn't give him too much of, but at the moment I want to give him anything at all that he will eat to put some meat back on his bones. He has a bit of a limp, but I think it is because his muscles have wasted away. Any advice you can give to help him build back up again would be very much appreciated.
Now, 6 days later, he is much, much stronger and getting back to his cheeky ways.
I knew he wouldn't have gone to live somewhere else, and by the desperation in his voice that morning, I think he knew exactly where his home was and came running straight home from where he had been stuck.
Thanks again and I hope there are more success stories to come for you.
'Lola' missing since 20.Aug.2009 - 6.Oct.2009
Lola a 4yr old chipped Fluffy female with Green eyes
Black and White: more white on her front half
and belly, black on the top of her head, back and back end.
Wearing her Pink collar with magnet and ID barrel
Sorry its taken a while to get back to you but I have fantastic news, we have found Lola! We had a call from someone in a nearby street (only about 100 metres from home) to say she was in their garden, we went straight over and there she was! She was in an awful state, skin and bones and had a horrible injury where she had got her front leg through her collar and had opened up a wound on her chest. Luckily she recognised us straight away and we had no problem getting hold of her, we took her straight to the PDSA hospital where she had an operation to remove her collar and sew up the wound. There is a small chance if the wound doesn't heal well that she may lose her front leg but as each day passes hopefully that chance gets smaller. So, she's at home now recouperating and being spoilt rotten. We have no idea where she was, if she was trapped or if the injury caused her to lose weight, who knows but we found her just in the nick of time I think.
Thanks for all your advice and best of luck in helping others, if you could update Lola to being home safe I would appreciate it!!
Many thanks and best wishes
'CheekyBoy' found c.14.Sept.2009 - 2.Oct.2009
'Cheeky Boy' a DSH male
Tabby and White with four White legs.On back of one leg has Black mark.
Healthy and very friendly
Cheeky Boy has been reunited with his family.
A lady answered my ad in the Gazette this afternoon. Would you believe they live in Raikes Parade at the other end from me. They moved here from North Shore just over a month ago. They have two cats the other is a female and is chipped but the tom is not.
His name is "Mally" and he was obviously pleased to see them but I expect he will come back regularly so I won't feed him any more until he gets fed up. And I have taken his "tent" down.
They say they will put a collar on him now. Also they say he is 15 years old!
So a happy ending and I can stop worrying about him
Thanks so much for your help. I have told lots of people about your website.
