Does anyone know anything about a smallish ginger cat in the Balmoral /Holyrood Close area. It has been hanging around my garden now for 5 days. Do you know anyone that is missing a cat in this area. It cries incessantly.

The power of the internet. In the past I would have been knocking on doors to see if anyone or knew of anyone who was missing a cat. I would never ever go to the RSPCA as years ago when I found a kitten they told me to take it up the road and loose it.
