Topsy Missing From Main Street, Castletown
Topsy is a small, neutered, four-year-old cat who has been missing from his home in Main Street, Castletown, for the past few weeks. He is extremely friendly, and very fond of people, so is liable to make himself very much at home with anyone who might invite him in. On the other hand, he may have strayed too far from home, or be locked in a shed or outbuilding. He has a torn left ear as, being a bit of a wimp, he usually comes off worst in any feline fights.
If you think you have seen him, please call (01847) 821608

Lost Cat At Durran

A stray black and white cat turned up at my house a couple of nights ago. He is fully house trained and I would say not a year old yet. He's very friendly and cute!. I think possibly he's been dumped, but maybe someone has lost him and I know how I would feel if I had lost a pet! We are more than happy to keep him, but I'd like to give the owners a chance to claim him back first. I have been told by a neighbour that he was dumped at their farm about 6 days ago
My address is Durran, Castletown, contact number is 07796 838519

He is well known in this area but appears to have disappeared without a trace. He is very partial to cars and may have wandered into one and been transported elsewhere. His distinguishing features are his white whiskers, quite a small head for such a large body, almost non existent meow and sooty paw pads.

From Gill Lowe
Cat Missing From Tansfield Castletown

I have a cat who has been missing since Christmas Day.   His name is Mork and he is a 9 year old grey and white short coated male cat.  He went missing from the Tansfield area of Castletown and has not been seen since.   He has a problem with his sight due to a previous illness so he may be lost.   Any information would be gratefully received.  My contact number is 01847 821700 and my name is Gill.   Unfortunately I can't locate a picture of him at the moment but I will send one as soon as I can.  I have checked with the vets, SSPCA and Cats Protection League and placed notices in the local shop, post office and garage.

Creagan - A Missing Westie
Creagan went missing from his home at Mid Clyth some months ago and the owners suspect he was lifted from the area.  A pet who had been rehomed he had settled in well with the family and other dogs they own.  Anyone who has information about this Westie can report to the family via the webmaster of Caithness.org , the local Wick vet or the Wick police who have it recorded. 
A description of Creagan and his habits is as follows - He is three years old and one characteristic that never left him was his unusual habit of standing on his back legs and pawing the air with his front legs, which he displayed whenever he was excited, frustrated or meeting someone new. Other features of Creagan are a banana-shaped tail, front paws which turn  out slightly, small neat ears, and the fact that his hair parts in the middle all along his back. He has also been known to "mouth" when nervous or anxious, which involves him repeatedly opening and closing his mouth whilst sitting still, and not making any noise.

Missing Pets Gallery
Unfortunately some pets go missing and we are increasingly being sent photos of missing pets.  To make it easier for anyone to find the photos and information we will in future keep them all in one place and have created a Missing Pets Gallery to make it easier to view the photos all in one place in case you find a missing cat, dog or other animal that we have been notified about.

Balmore Animal Centre - Caithness
Remember that Balmore Animal Centre looks after many stray animals each year and if you are looking to get a cat or a dog they may be able to show you animals looking for new homes.  Sometimes older people can no longer look after a well loved dog or cat or the animal may have gotten lost and no one can trace the owner.  You may be asked to pay fees for injections or neutering and as the centre is charity you might consider making a donation.
