    Ok don’t panic, go hang as many of your dirty clothes on the garden fence or door, Freddy will pick up the scent if he is lost.
    Check all your sheds or outbuildings.
    Knock your neighbours as many have sheds and garages open on Sundays.
    Go out every 30 mins calling him, shaking treats packets or his favourite thing.
    Leave smelliest cat food you have by you door.

    He is probably near bynot wanting to come in.

    I have had this toooooo many times, it is frightening, so try stay calm xx

    stay calm hun

    How do you know he’s missing? If it’s only been half an hour?


    You need to go out searching. Neighbours gardens, sheds, outbuildings, garages, it’s been sunny and warm in the day so easy to get shut in.

    He could be having a stand off somewhere.

    Have you done the fork against dish, shaking treats, calling....

    Big lesson in it for me :,-(

    I had opened the kitchen window a little because I had the tumble dryer on just before he went missing. The window is really sticky and hard to push open. I didn’t open it without a thought, I deliberately only left it ajar slightly coz I know they can get through gaps. His brothers were outside already coz they go out in the garden. Freddy must’ve jumped up on the worktop and off he went. He has never done it before so I didn’t for a second think he would push it open last night xx

    Big wake up call :,-(. Thank god he’s home and safe xxx

    Oh, naughty Owl Face, what a worry. So glad he's back safely. I know that feeling when you're desperately hunting for them and also that much nicer feeling when you see their little face when they come back. Such a low and such a high. Phew xxxxxxxxxx

    Oh Lord Freddy of Owl Face! Just because your big bruvs go out doesn’t mean you do too. Glad he’s back safe and sound (& hopefully not with a taste for going out!).
