Cats: Lost and Found


A Brockley Fox (but not one of The Brockley Foxes) writes:

This cat has been seen in braxfield road over the last few weeks. I have lived here for 2 years now, and have never seen it before. It doesn;t appear to have a home, is getting thinner, and always seems to be outside whatever the time of day or the weather. It's very friendly, and my housemates and I have started feeding it, and giving it shelter.

Natrually we are keen to find its owners, or at least find somewhere that can deal with these things. Could you put a post on broc central please? perhaps someone in the area can shed some light?

We don't want to turn Brockley Central in to kitty corner, but this cat clearly needs a break and the poster made us laugh.

You should take it to John Hankinson on Shardeloes Road, or to Celia Hammond on Lewisham Way. Either of them will be able to check to see if it's microchipped, which will make it easy to trace the owner. Additionally, Celia Hammond will have a good idea if any cats have been reported missing. Good luck!

I live on Braxfield Road and I've seen this cat too in my front garden.
I think it may live on either Arabin or the next road Comerford Road. I'm already entertaining the ginger/goldilocks cat which always pops in for afternoon tea and a nap!

I think Brockley has its fair share of meandering cats! I think they have a cat-swap scheme going on somewhere.

I'd take it to City Noodles

They make an excellent rack of ribs you know

Remember "Neverwhere" and Richard-Richard-Mayhew-Dick being asked whether he liked cat?

Seinfeld *and* Neil Gaiman fans on here! This is definitely the blog for me.

Where were you when I was referencing Swamp Thing and Watchmen?

max said...

I'm reading Watchmen right now, great!
Pretty amazing to realize that it's the source for the Incredibles.

Brockley Nick said...

Max - on the subject of comics, I really recommend the Sandman series. Some great art as well as great writing by Neil Gaiman.

max said...

Thanks for the tip, I'll get it.
Have you read the third book of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen yet?

mg said...

How did I miss that!
And Max, Watchmen is the ne plus ultra really but add some Hellraiser to Sandman and Swamp Thing. Heaven.

Only managed the first volume of LXG. To be honest, most of my comic reading these days happens when I sneak away from my family in bookshops to quickly grab some time in the graphic novels section.

Nina said...

I love LXG and Top 10 as well!

Less comics, more cats!

Brockley Nick said...

"Fewer" comics, more cats.

Less relates to a quantity.

Fewer relates to a number.

Perhaps if spent less time with cats and you read more comics, you'd have a better grasp of English ;)

Having been distressed by the grammatical shortcomings displayed elsewhere on this forum, may I point out that I am both an accountant and a cat-lover. Not all of us are illiterate.

PS any further news on the lost and found cat?

Anna said...

Thanks for the info (well some of it anyway). We've had several people saying it's not their cat, but that they've seen it "hanging around". We're going to take it to Celia Hammond to check for microchip.

And, dependant on the outcome, possibly onward to the chinese...

Well according to this...

It may have more than a single chip. Apparently... "The ultimate goal is to create a circuit with the complexity of a cat's brain"

This could lead to robotic cats. If they can be programed to do the washing up then I could be tempted.

Or swap them with Andy's and get them to turn on him when given the code word.

drakefell debaser said...

The code word could be 'Black'. He would be in hospital before the weeks up.

I saw this cat during the summer on Geoffrey Road. It was missing some fur from its sides and rather thin but very friendly and wasn't hungry. I wondered about taking it to Celia Hammond but all in all it seemed ok. Sounds like it possibly is a stray though.

Was the mystery of the very fluffy ginger and black cat ever solved? A puss who looks exactly like the one in the photo has taken up residence on our door step in Manor Ave, and we are feeling increasingly responsible for her (just off to buy some fur de-tangling potion). Not sure if she is a stray or lost or a serial monogamist? Any insights hugely welcomed- thanks!
