Finding a Lost Cat

Losing your cat is scary but the best thing to do is stay calm and start looking for your pet right away! The longer you wait, the further away she could wander. Most cats will hide when they become stressed or lost. First call her and look in all of her hiding spaces in the house like closets, under the bed etc. If she has gotten, out, start your search in your own neighborhood. Listen carefully for your cats meow. Talk to neighbors who might have seen her and check in cat hiding spots like under porches. Try sprinkling some of her cat litter out front. She may be able to follow her own scent right back to your door.  Most lost cats do find their way home. It’s a good idea to contact your local cat shelter and post missing cat flyers if she isn’t back soon. My cats are indoor cats and one time when she was a young girl, my small cat Millie wound up on my neighbors terrace. I happened to hear her cry. Some how, she climbed over the railing and got onto the terrace. Luckily my neighbor was home and I got her right away. I know, the experience can be scary! Always microchip your pets, it could be lifesaving!

Remember, pets are family!
