I'm thinking of creating a Facebook page for our cat club. Does anyone have any good photos of their cats that I can add plus anything that you want to say about your cat......?Continue

It is worth doing Facebook so that you can message people you may know in the local area, or local businesses, about the cat. But posters on trees, in the library, and messages on mylostcat.org, etc. can be just as good if not better, so please don't feel nagged by me into starting a Facebook account if you don't already have one! - Talking to neighbours, ringing local vets and emailing them a copy of the lost cat poster are all good and will make you feel much better, and you will be doing a brilliant job of helping Lily.
It is clear you love her very much, and I've no doubt that you will get her back. Keep the faith :)
It's great that she's chipped as this increases the chances of getting her back even more. It is good that you have put up a poster. I would suggest putting up a number of posters in the local area, just because this increases the numbers of people who will be aware and will look out for her. And it really is worth knocking on doors to alert people.
If you take time to follow all the suggestions that have been made, I guarantee that you will not feel as hopeless - in fact you will feel that you are taking control of a horrible situation.
Any social media - Facebook, etc. - is obviously worth doing. It may even be worth putting a lost cat advert on Gumtree, putting your postcode in the strapline. I tried that when Puma was missing and got a couple of possible sightings.
It's very challenging, but keep doing 'search' activities every day, and keep believing you'll get her back. She may come back tomorrow, you may be reunited with her through a phone call from the microchip company in a couple of weeks, or even a couple of months. DO NOT DESPAIR. Lily is unusual-looking and people will remember her once they've seen the picture. I know it doesn't feel that way, but the odds are very much in your favour.
Thank you very much everyone.
I put a poster on the tree in the entrance of Maidstone Rd.
She is microchipped and has pink neck charm which says "Take me home" and my mobile number. I just feel so hopeless but at the same time I should be doing what I can do as suggested by you. Thank you so much.
... And to add to what I have just written, Junko, you were one of the kind people who looked out for my cat when he went missing. So thank you again for that. If you need further support, do post on here and people will help. I'm sure you'll get her back :)
Hi Junko. I'm so very sorry to hear that Lily is missing and I hope she returns soon. She is so beautiful! I live very close to Maidstone Road and I will certainly keep a look-out.
I know what you are going through as my cat Puma went missing last year for a whole week. It was horrible, and I'd given up hope, but he did come back. Thuranie and Kathie have given great advice. Put posters up on lamp posts and trees in the local area showing her picture and giving your phone number. You'd be amazed how many people will read the poster and look out for her. She's very distinctive-looking, which will help.
It is also worth knocking on neighbours' doors with copies of the poster, asking them to look in sheds, garages etc. The more people know she's missing, the better. The chances are that she's not too far away.
As well as Animal Search, there is Lostmycat.org, and the lost cat forum on CatChat. org. You could alert local vets and ask them to put up posters in case someone brings her in, and alert Wood Green animal shelter on Lordship Lane.
Is she chipped? If you haven't chipped her because she is an indoor cat, that will be worth doing once you are reunited with her. I would also recommend a product called Cat Tab which allows you to track your cat's movements.
The vast majority of lost cats do turn up again, so please don't lose hope.
You and Lily are in my thoughts and prayers.
Poor Junko, I hope she comes home soon. Meanwhile, have a look at Animal Search UK. They run an email alert service and can alert everyone in the area who has signed up to it. And there are lots of people local to us on it. Let us know how you get on.
