I have mailed flyers to all our neighbours with pictures of the cat, problem with my neighbourhood is neighbours are rarely in their houses, always away or at work! At the moment before seeing the feather I was feeling hopeful and optimistic. I had been feeling sad then started to talk about a kitten who returned after 9 days missing of its own accord, I felt a wave of optimism and hope then looked out of the window to see the feather fall in front of me right in the centre of the garden.
I'm more used to seeing numerical symbols, recently I have been seeing a lot of 22 and 222/2222. I will update this thread if she turns up.
