It looks like Milo has gone missing. He’s done a runner from the area around Oakfield Road, Balsall Heath. Apparently he will answer to his name, which sounds a bit unlikely but worth a shot. He’s only been missing since the 21st December, so the trail is very much alive. So get out there and check your sheds, or even take a close look at that cat you might have “taken in” over the last couple of days. His owners really want him back and this isn’t the weather for a cat to be outside mucking about in. If you see him, then his owners number is there, alternatively email us on email@example.com or even leave a message in the comments below. Good luck, let’s being Milo home.
It’s only been a few days but Ruby’s been found. Actually she hasn’t been found, she came home of her own accord. If previous experience is anything to go by then we assume that the Birmingham Post will be clamouring for a press conference. We don’t know where she’s been but apparently she looked a bit thin, was very hungry and quite tired. Though cats tend to be quite tired from the moment they get up. We think she’s been to town.
Fortunately it’s been quite a while since we’ve heard about a cat going missing. Unfortunately it looks like Ruby has gone missing. As you can see from the picture Ruby is both quite small and quite cute. A dangerous combination when you’re a cat out on your own. She lives right in the centre of Moseley, around the Farquar Road, Leighton Road and Tudor Road area. We know her well her enough to say hello to and she is a very nice cat. She’s been gone a few days so it’s likely she has gone to have a sleep in a shed or is trying to live in another house for a bit. So check your shed, and if you do happen to be living with a cat you don’t recognise then let us know and we will let her worried owner know.

There has been a typical media flurry about the good news that Beauty had been found, with everyone more than pleased with a happy ending that nobody expected. The Birmingham Post particularly added to the coverage with some excellent pictures of Beauty. For all of us that had been worried about her fate, over the last eleven months, it was great to see her and hear some of the details of what she had been up to, clearly blissfully unaware of her new national profile. Unfortunately the pictures also tell us something else. The new cat doesn’t really look like Beauty. She looks similar but has some quite different markings. We can’t find any scientific reason why she would have suddenly grown white feet. Cat experts (Google) seem to be of the opinion that cats don’t really change their markings dramatically. Although we happily run a web site devoted to cats we really don’t know the first thing about them. So, cat experts of the world, judge our Beauty Pageant. Tell us what you think. Though we are cynical about the provenance of this particular cat we are glad it has found a home. If people want to call it Beauty and give it a loving home then this can only be a good thing. We just hope it will pass the Twinkle test.
Surely we can’t be the only people who’d come to the conclusion that this wouldn’t end well. In fact for months we’d been telling anyone willing to listen that little Beauty had obviously been eaten by a fox. It seems that she is in fact alive and well and living in Sparkbrook (apparently it was Sparkhill, we thought they were the same place). She even has her own kittens. The quote from John Hemming, in relation to Beauty’s current living situation, appears to make little sense:- “I went to see the cat last night and indeed it was Beauty. We, however, think that she is feeding kittens at the moment so she has been returned to the lady who had kindly looked after her for a year so that we can try to track down the kittens.” And Mr Hemming added: “It seems that Beauty has been looked after by two households at the same time. I think one of those households also has her kittens (more likely than they are outside). “We need to track down the other household that is looking after Beauty. If they have her and a litter of kittens I would not be surprised if there was some form of arrangement we could come to. In any event I don’t want to take her away from her kittens. (If indeed there are kittens which I think there are).” But confusion seems to have been a fairly consistent part of this entirely sordid affair. Obviously some […]
We don’t get to say this very often but it looks like Rambo has come home. We’d like to say we had something to do with it. We didn’t. It’s great he’s home and now we just need to find out where he’s been and whether or not he really is Dave’s old cat.
It’s a shame we seem to spend more time reporting missing cats than reviewing them these days. That’s not a lack of cats, it’s laziness. Anyway this time Rambo has gone missing. He’s about 8 years old and has been missing for around 10 days. He usually lives in Stirchley, very near Bournville station. If you live near there please have a look about and let us know at email@example.com. We haven’t had a lot of luck at finding the missing recently. It’s getting a bit like Argentina round here. Help us reverse the trend.
Anyone who has paid attention The Birmingham Mail today will have heard about the plight of Beauty the kitten. Whilst we will admit a passing snigger at some of the frankly bizarre details we are concerned that Beauty still doesn’t seem to be at home where she belongs. We think this means that people of Moseley must do what they are best at…… finding a missing cat. You know what you need to do , check boxes, disused cars and fridges. Beauty must be found. If you find her then pass details on here. There’s a reward apparently.
Have you lost a cat? Have you lost 2 cats? Both of these have been found on Salisbury Road and would like to either go home or find a new home. If you can help then let us know firstname.lastname@example.org Please note the lighter is being used purely to demonstrate size. The cat does not come with a lighter and does not pose a fire hazard.
We feel quite guilty about this. We don’t know where he is or anything like that, oh no. Someone did mention to us a while ago that Doctor had gone missing but we completely forgot about it. As you can see from the poster Doctor is quite young so natural curiosity might have encouraged him to go and live with someone else for a bit. If you know where he is please let his owners know. They do want him back. Edgbaston Road East seems to be where we need to be concentrate our efforts. Maybe you could combine a bit of a look about with a trip to Lidl or the Diwan. If you see him then please let us know at the usual address, email@example.com or even leave a comment here.
