Missing Cat - Possible Sightings near Ashton Gate

Not angry at all, I just don't understand why a thread about a lost cat is on a football forum.

And I don't like your cancer comment.

I reckon few like your comment. Stand by a fellow fan, not tease them.

Again if it was that type of cat roaming the streets of bs3 then the op wouldn’t feel the need to look for his beloved pet

Saw a couple when Hull were down! 😂

Lucy, sometimes mistaken for Kitten Kong, went missing for nearly two months, 5 years ago. I persisted and managed to find her just in the nick of time. She's now 17 and enjoying life with Felix who is 18 and Perseus who turned up four years ago as a stray.

On the minus side, I had a two year old cat go missing in 1991 and never seen him again and will never know what his fate was. Having said that, back in 1991 was before the internet and social media which makes it easier to make people aware. Back then it was just cards in shop Windows and an advert in the Evening Post which attracted comedians with the same tasteless, unoriginal joke about where they'd found my cat.

In searching for Lucy I even came across a couple who said their cat was missing for a year and then suddenly turned up and made himself back at home as if nothing had happened.

And you have neither....so well done! 

I was suggesting most people in this topic aren’t showing empathy.

I just don’t get why people get upset when cats go missing, it’s what they do. A safer alternative would be a goldfish

Oh ....apologies...some cats, ours included have very strict routines and do not roam far from home , males are somewhat different and can roam for a good mile + i would be extremely upset if our cat went missing because it would be completely out of character . 

Goldfish are a poor alternative IMO

You don’t understand?

whats not to understand? A family are trying to find their cat which they obviously care a great deal about, so they extend their desperate search to a wider audience 

...you know, to his fellow Bristol City family 

but of course you know that. You’re just being a tit

On a boring non football Saturday we could have pushed this thread to a new record number of pages if it had been entitled ‘Hunting for pussy in Ashton’?

Hey there. Our cat named Jesse has been missing since last friday 30th. We've heard of a similar looking cat was possibly seen at Ashton gate school. And on wednesday possibly seen near the scout hut opposite ashton gate stadium. They said he was following random people about begging and is very friendly. If you see him could you take him to the local vet to get his chip checked.

If you think you have seen him or do see him could you please call 07967657137. We are going there now to see if we can find him.

He has lost weight since these pictures so may look smaller now.

Could the mods please leave this on the main page for a day or 2 to get as many views as possible?

Cheers

To get 'back on topic,Jesse is quite a handsome fella & an absolute 'spit for Mrs Bruce's feline friend...although im more of a dog man 'meself he's quite a character & I've become rather fond of him..

Hope you are soon reunited.

Thanks very much Major. It is gut wrenching. He is such a lovely cat. We posted letters to every door where we live asking people to search their sheds. Unfortunately heard nothing so far. Thanks again

Fingers crossed for you. I hope you find him.

Partly to bump this, and also because I like animals.

I hope the cat finds its way home.

If you’ve lost something that you’re desperately trying to find, you select what you consider the best method of getting the message out there and yes, it isn’t football related, but they are engaging with people who may be able to help the cause! 

Thanks. That was the whole point of putting it here. The possible sighting was near Ashton Gate so I thought I'd ask on here to see if any fellow city fans who live in the area have seen him.

Been out again looking around another sighting but no luck.

Looking forward to good news once you are reunited.

Ignore the trolls, they clearly don’t appreciate that pets become part of the family, nor how ignorant and insensitive it is to try to make a joke.

Dog owners throw their wrapped up bags of shit in my hedge.  They also leave them on the walls on the approach to a primary school around corner.

Yeah, I've had this a few times now. Combined with noise pollution of barking I am certainly in the cat camp as a preferred pet. Having said that, it's the owners that are ultimately responsible... 🐈🐈🐈🐈

It's on loads of facebook pages. It gets blocked on the buy & sell groups as they think I am selling an animal which is not allowed on facebook.

It's on Hello Nailsea, Nailsea Forum, Lost and found pets in Bristol/South Glos, Bristol cats community, Somerset lost found cats - south west, Lost & found cats in Bristol UK area and more

I will love it if someone on this forum finds the cat. Good thinking posting this on here. Good luck.

Good job it's a cat. If it was a missing dog, how many of us would wander around BS3 calling out "Rover! Rover!"?

I had a card through my door a long time ago asking to check sheds etc. I had been in my bed for three days and thought nothing of it. (I had been in the shed immediately before I got ill) It started to bug me and went and checked. Sure enough a very emaciated cat bolted out as soon as I opened the door. At least the cat had kept busy whilst he was in my shed. The cat had pulled every container out of the racks of screws, nails and bolts etc.  Took me days to sort everything out. 

Worthwhile knocking on loads of doors and asking people to check for you. Cards can get dismissed too easily. 

Good luck.

Definitely....my cat once went missing for two days and we found her stuck in the cavity wall of a neighbour's garage. Obviously a mouse nest in there was too hard to resist.....

If people don’t like a thread, where the title makes it very clear what it’s about then it’s simple, stay out of the thread.

If you can’t be kind, be quiet. 

Could easily apply that to someone else one here 🙄

Hope the cat is found soon, remember what it was like when we couldn't find our dog, went running around local streets for 5/10 minutes before getting a call that she'd just walked into next doors garden to have a sniff around.

@Threshing Red hope he re-appears.

Have you sprinkled some of his litter tray (if he has one) or vacuum contents in your garden, near to where he would have left from? Also, you could try hanging some unwashed bedding/clothing on the line as it will have your scent and can draw him back.

If chipped, please notify the chip company that he is missing. If he's taken to a vet, it will be flagged already when the vet checks. If he hasn't had "the chop", he could be out looking for ladies, kinda like @Rudolf Hucker.

Also, expand the letterbox drop to places near to sightings and surrounding streets near to home that you've not yet covered.

Finally, please phone the local vets (Highcroft, Avon Lodge, The Vet Hengrove, PDSA, Vets4Pets, Rowes, Zetland Road, Golden Valley, Viking Vets etc).

Most importantly, please phone Bristol ARC (Dogs home) and actually go down to check because many times they'll say no we haven't had any fitting the description but actually they have the animal.

 

Edit: Just saw his post on one of the FB pages. I would also suggest contacting Whitehouse Kennels and Holly Hedge because straying cats are often dropped there. If he does have a chip, it may have failed/move around the body so please don't rely on a call.
