UPDATE:: Skimbles has now been reunited with his owner, who lives across the road! Over the last 6 weeks we had visited all our neighbours enquiring if they had lost a cat ... except the neighbours up a very long driveway and across the road! Skimbles owner is very happy to get him back, and I have directed her to your site.

Note from Petsonthenet: After a global Man Hunt, make that Cat Hunt! And with the help and good will of many people we were able to get Skimbles identity which lead to his reunion. Thank you so much to all and particularly PetAir UK who gave us the key info we needed to crack the case!
__________________________________________________ ___________

Mature brown male tabby (spotted and striped). Seems to be in good condition however has a missing front canine; split top lip and chin (both healed); and a ragged ear.

Extremely placid and friendly. Has a tendency to want to lick and gently bite people.

He has been microchipped, but the chip has never been registered.

Found in Potter Road, Dairy Flat (actually he found us) around the end of August.

Phone : 09-414 5959 (home / work)

Further Update from Petsonthenet: We have heard from overseas that his name is SKIMBLES and is registered to a person by the name of M Friedrichs. If anyone knows of this person please contact them if possible.

Note from Petsonthenet; After much online searching in NZ, Australia and UK, we have discovered that this cat IS registered, but not in NZ, in the UK. We have emailed the UK database in hopes they can help us to reunite this cat. So someone had brought this cat into NZ from the UK at some point..We hope to find you soon!!!
