Finding a Lost Cat
Usually indoor cats do not stray very far from their home. It is common for them to get trapped in a neighbors basement, garage or shed and be within a few houses of their home. It is possible for them to end up some miles away though, so be sure to inform all your local shelters and rescues.
The best way to make sure your cat can find it’s way back to you is to microchip it! This is one of the services we provide and we scan every cat that comes in.
See Pauline’s wonderfully detailed site for the many ways you can go about finding your lost one: www.catsinthebag.org.
Here are few other tips:
- Print this flyer, add a photo of your cat and contact information, and post it all over your neighborhood. If your cat was frightened, she or he may have run quite a distance before seeking shelter.
- If your cat trusts you, put your smelliest laundry outside your door. You may well find him or her sleeping on it in the night.
