ANYONE SEEN PICKLES?

Pickles is an all-white neutered male with green eyes. He’s three-and-a-half years old. 

He isn’t wearing a collar, but has been micro-chipped. 

He ought to be at home in Bellevue Road, but isn’t. Instead, he’s been missing since 8 January.

Pickles is in a bit of a pickle. 

Please keep an eye out for him, and check your sheds. If you’ve seen him recently or know where he is now, kindly call his humans on 07794 00305. Alternatively, call the Identibase helpline on 0370 2408245, quoting reference number 011D36.

REPEAT OFFENDER GOES OFF THE RADAR

Meet Reay. 

Or rather, meet Reay again. We last featured him back in May 2014 when he temporarily wandered off in search of his brother. 

Now he’s gone AWOL again, this time in protest at major works in progress at his home on the east side of Dublin Street. 

Reay’s usual haunts are Barony Street and the Dublin Street mews. You can easily recognise him as he’s a big, middle-aged Bengal with a torn ear from various undisclosed territorial encounters.  

MID-SUMMER POPPY APPEAL

This 11-year-old local has been missing from the Gayfield Square/Leith Walk area for over a week now, and her unusual absence is causing alarm. 

She is ginger with green eyes, a white bib and paws, and is of medium to large build. 

She’s neutered but not chipped, and was not wearing a collar when she disappeared on 18 June. 

Her people say she’s a friendly, indoor cat and  that it’s unusual for her to wander from home.

If you find or spot Poppy, please contact 0797 2726659.

THE CAT THAT WALKED BY ITSELF

(AND ALSO LIKED TO VISIT) … 

On 4 October, late afternoon, a fine smoky grey cat sallied through the open door of Concrete Wardrobe on Broughton Street. 

After sniffing around, it settled on a rug by a mirror, doubtless admiring itself. Then it moved to the luscious comforts in the shop window where it was admired in turn by passers-by. 

ANYONE SEEN HARPER?

This small two-year-old local is normally in and out of the backgreens behind Cornwallis Place, and sometimes finds her way along as far as the allotments off East Scotland Street Lane. 

But in a change of behaviour which is completely out of character, Harper’s been missing since yesterday for no apparent reason. 

She has a very white chest, distinctive light and dark grey markings on her back, and is chipped and neutered. 

She responds to her owners calling her by name, but is likely to be more timid around strangers.

STILL MISSING, STILL MISSED

The hunt is still on for Alfie – the young cat who went missing from Bellevue Place back in September.

Anyone around Broughton with a passing interest in lampposts will by now have seen one of the dozens of notices put up by Alfie’s concerned owner all over the neighbourhood.

Her poster campaign has resulted in several responses, with possible sightings as far afield as McDonald Road in the weeks and months since his disappearance. But still no Alfie.

CAT DISAPPEARANCE COMES AS A BLOW

Anyone seen Lilo?

She headed out from 14 Bellevue Street on Monday (22 September) and hasn't returned since. She likes being outside, but rarely travels far from her home patch – hence the sudden concern.

Lilo is a small tortoiseshell cat with distinctive white markings on her belly and feet. (She has a big white sock on her left hind leg). She also has a white patch on her neck, and a white nose.
