I'm sorry to hear this Judy...I live at the River end of Saxton Road and often walk my dogs near the Marina. I will share his details now and keep my eye out for him. x

Judyann
Thank you! As he is diabetic, I don't hold out much hope for his survival, but I'd really like to know what's become of him. He did make off in the direction of the Marina. Judy

Has Charlie returned yet Judy? x
Judyann
Judyann
No, I'm afraid he hasn't. And he needs insulin injections twice daily...Thank you for your concern, Lisa.Judy

I will be walking my dog near the Marina area later Judy. I will keep a look out for Charlie. x

Thank you for looking out for him, Lisa. I don't think there is any chance that he will have survived this long without his insulin, even if someone has taken him in, but I'd love to know where he is and what has happened.Judy

Hi Judy, I'm so sorry to hear that Charlie has not returned. Has he every gone off before? It would be nice to at least have some closure for you. Maybe someone has taken him in. His diabeties makes his disapearance extra worrying. xxx

JudyI've left a voice message on the above contact number also. I think we may have found your cat - does he have a particularly impressive loud miaow? We're over the road on West Quay. Pls ring 01235 550438 or see bay 20-24, the cat has been sleeping under the hedge behind a black Peugeot reg KS51 XZM, in the corner next to the wall.Fingers crossed!

Ohhh!!! I can't wait until Judy gets your message Su...I really hope the cat is Charlie. He is diabetic. Have you got him at yours? xxx

It is indeed Charlie! I still can't really believe it as I'd lost all hope that he could survive this long without medication. He seems in amazingly good form for an elderly diabetic cat that's been living rough for ten days. I'm enormously grateful to Su for tracking me down, and to Ruth for feeding him today. I've spoken to the vet, and have advice on getting him back onto his diet and insulin injections, and with luck there shouldn't be any serious repercussions. He's eaten normally tonight, and is now asleep in his usual place on the sofa, just as though he'd never been away. Thank you for all your concern and support, Lisa, and thank you too to Animal Finders for their excellent service.Very best wishes,Judy

Charlie was found sleeping rough in the next road. He is subdued, but seems none the worse for his experience despite his age and lack of medication.
