Makes a nice change to the usual sort of violence after an england game
Yes, some group other than England fans being fucking stupid and violent is always a 'nice change'.....
So a smashed up pub window is a "nice change"? What other violence occurred after the game?
It’s the other set of dickheads.
Have come home this evening to a very endearing young cat hanging out on my doorstep (my neighbour has left out some food and I've added some water and biscuits). He/she is very miaowy and is also very thin (very pointy sticky out spine).
I can't take him/her in because of my own old lady cat but this is a shout out to see if anybody is missing him/her. Shall also post n the other forums as well as WN forum. If anybody has any leads please let me know.. thanks.
PS am on Probyn Rd nr Tulse Hill station.
PPS he/she would also seem to possibly be deaf
Ooooo there were three cat missing posters half way down Josephine Avenue today. And one was definitely black and white. I can’t go back and look right now though.
A bit of a trek from Josephine Avenue but it wouldn't be the first time a lost feline is found miles away from home.
Brixton Hatter needs a cat
I have two myself but any vet will be able to scan for a chip and hopefully reunited with its owner.
Just had another look and definitely not the Josephine Av cat.
Has anyone taken the cat to be scanned? Hopefully it's home and mastering over its owners.
Cat went missing again but I am in touch with her owner and we think we may have found her behind a locked gate. It's a waiting game.
PS thanks all for your input and suggestions.
My phone won't upload a picture of the poster but there's one on the tree outside the car sales yard at the Palace Road/Leigham Vale junction looking for this cat. Same descriptionyou've given. Tel no is 07401103118. Her name is Poll and she's deaf and hyperthyroid so needs to get home for medicine. Friendly and fine to be picked up.
oh - just seen your post above! Dammit - I was all excited too!
Bill Posters is dead - 26/06/18.
I noticed that too yesterday, further on up Palace Road. I got all excited, only to see that he had found her and her owner.
Still, it’s great to have some element of community in this often anonymous city.
Thanks GG and Smick.
Actually we haven’t yet found her. The story is that the owner found a cat down Perran Road behind a locked gate that he was convinced was his (it was dark and difficult to see). We couldn’t entice her out.
Then somebody on West Norwood Facebook Forum posted a tweet with pic from a website called petslocated.com. Found on Elmcourt.
So, one of the cats is likely his, I registered with petslocated last night so I could message the finder. Seems like an RSPCA connection. I’m now waiting for a response from them....
The plot thickens
Really hope she turns up or is found.
Polly is now home safe with her owner after several days of searching.
Turned out she was not the cat behind the locked gate after all. But we got the lead from another forum and eventually tracked her down to the RSPCA hospital in Putney where she was very well looked after.
Been quite a rollercoaster for her, but a very happy ending.
Thank you all for your good wishes and input.
Surely we can't be that far away from affordable tracking devices small enough to fit on pets' collars? A trackable microchip would be even better of course, but that is much more of a challenge and not realistic for many years yet.
I know there are some products out there already (iTiles I think they're called) that you can attach to valuables, but I suspect they're not very weather resistant and they run out of juice in months anyway and you have to buy a new one. But surely we already have the technology to develop something suitable. Imagine how much grief and anguish could be avoided if owners of lost pets could open an app and instantly get a fix on their missing furry friend.
The problem is the battery life. The gadgets can be made quite small but it'll be a ballache for owners to keep charging up the things,
They should invent a thing the same as a microchip. That they can inject into the animal. Now that's an idea. x
With an aerial up the kitty's botty.
Yeah I guess you're spot on. Still, I would consider buying a USB-chargeable tracking collar (I guess they could sell them in packs of two so you keep one charged at home, and swap it with the other when needed) if such thing existed.
I considered buying an iTile when I first heard of them but you couldn't even recharge them- once they're depleted you need to buy another.
This one can only manage 2-5 days.
Interesting. Not cheap though, and perhaps a bit on the large side to put on a cat. And unless you got them used to it from a young age, knowing the crafty buggers I'm sure the device would last about five minutes on their collars
And the smaller they are, the worse the battery life
