Black, long-haired cat with a little bit of white, red collar and bell. Turned up in a garden in Como Road on Wednesday evening and has been hanging around morning and night since.

No, not mine.
Mine's still missing.
I think I saw a poster for a cat matching this description though. Unfortunately I can't remember where. Probably Sunderland Road or Waldram Park Road

Thanks Mandy, I'll check that out. I knew it wasn't yours because I checked your pictures. Someone else was advertising a missing black cat on a lamppost on Perry Vale on Friday but I phoned them and it wasn't the one we have. Just how many cats are missing at any one time?!
Does anyone know of a vet that can scan for microchips? I tried on Friday to find someone who has the equipment and eventually got on to the RSPCA but it's difficult trying to co-ordinate for one of their volunteers to come round when the cat is actually in our garden. I'm now wondering what the point of microchipping is, if it's so difficult to find anyone who can actually scan the chip.

I'm also wondering what the point is - it hasn't helped me find my cat.

Do Celia Hammond scan the chips? On Lewisham Way - they might know who does.

tell me that thay can scan chips.
Also The Celia Hammond Animal Trust and any veterinary surgeon should be able to provide this type of service.

Blushingsnail - there was also a poster for a missing black cat on Woolstone Road (Catford Hill end).
The latest on my cat is... he's found. Spent two and a half weeks in a flooded WWII bunker. Many thanks to my lovely neighbours who rescued him on Sunday night.

I am so glad to hear he's home.

That's the blitz spirit... no doubt he has acquired the taste for spam and bully beef. Look on the bright side, should save you a bit on the cat food bill.

Glad you got him back Mandy.
Update on the found cat: RSPCA lady came on Sunday but he doesn't have a chip. A neighbour has taken him in for the time being, with a view to keeping him permanently. If she decides not to, we can arrange for the RSPCA lady to take him to a local cattery to be re-homed. He's very friendly so shouldn't have a problem with someone wanting him.

What's to say he won't do a runner again?

He may well be a wandering cat. He managed to ingratiate himself with at least 4 households (he disappeared from our garden on Saturday morning and we later found he'd spent the afternoon on our next-door neighbour's sofa, lying on her lap), so he's good at that aspect of urban survival. But he's so thin I suspect he is in 'need' of a new home, rather than just chancing his luck.
Believe it or not, I'm not actually a cat person (much prefer dogs) but this little chap was in need of assistance. Plus we wanted to be able to open our kitchen door without him walking into the house.
