What to Do if Your Cat Gets Lost — 9 Comments

  1. These are very clear and easy to follow tips, Tim.
    #5 is very relevant to me and very important because the evil animal control confiscates any free roaming cat they see around here. It’s imperative not to wait long, hoping a cat will return, before going to the shelters. As you say, they won’t keep the cat around (3 days max). I have spent hours at our shelter going from room to room, cage after cage, looking. It’s heart wrenching but has to be done, because the facilities don’t keep records as to what vacinity a cat was taken from. The search would be a little easier if they did.
    And, like Caroline, #’s 9, 10, 11 are important tips that a lot of people wouldn’t think of.
    Thanks, Tim.

  2. This article is a godsend, even to those of us who have been reunited with our missing cats. And that is because it can happen to anyone, regardless of whether the cats are indoor or indoor/outdoor. And this post is the best that I have seen for laying out the steps to take. #9, #10 and #11 had never occurred to me. And #12? I am still missing Michael, my “spotted-bellied sphinx” (term of endearment) silver-tabby, the most intelligent cat known to exist 😉 ,and it has been five years. I still canvas the old neighborhood, check w/my old neighbors and at the Capital Humane Society. I dream about him still, as well as daydream. And it takes a lot of self-control not to panic when your beloved cat goes missing. So I really like the fact that you made that Numero Uno. Really appreciate this information.
