Help! Lost cat won't leave my garden: my dog will kill it!

A sweet little long-haired ginger and white cat has turned up in my garden, and it won't leave. I live rurally, and have no idea where it came from. In 11 yrs, I have only ever seen one other cat.

The problem is: my Whippet. She has form for cat-killing, and I am afraid the cat is a sitting target. She is still sitting where I first found her, and shows no inclination to leave at all.

I took the cat to the vets last night to see if it was chipped (it isn't). I went asking around neighbouring properties: no joy. I have put up posters in the area.

A local friend took the cat in over night and fed her (she was starving) - but she can't keep her, as she has new kittens.

She is a lovely little cat: very tame indeed, and cuddly. She sat purring on my lap as I drove to the vets! Someone must be missing her.

What should I do?

If I had no dog, I'd bring her in until someone came looking for her.

Can you post the cat photo on your local Facebook pages and see if anyone recognises it?

Local rescue is shut today - will try again tomorrow. I don't Facebook.

I can see this going horribly wrong. One hungry, soppy lost cat who keeps trying to come in and one Whippet- who has spotted her out of the window now.

Ah shit.
