Here are some tips in finding your
lost cat. We have lots of success stories, so keep
1. Make flyers with your cats picture.
Then place each flyer in every single mailbox in
an 8 block radius. You will need about 100 to 400
flyers. If you live near/in a condo complex then
you may need more. Make sure to include all your
phone numbers and email address.
2. Trap Kitty with Canned Tuna and
Salmon. You can rent traps at local Rental Stores,
Rescues or at your Local Pound. Place the Traps
near the location where you last saw your kitty.
It is usually very close to where you live. Cover
the traps with blankets and with plastic to keep
them dry and warm. A cold breeze can kill a cat
overnight. Begin trapping at Dusk and check after
Dawn. Spread the area with the Salmon or Tuna Juice,
and use fresh bait every night! Leave a Note on
the Trap detailing what you are doing and your contact
information. Notify your neighbors of what you are
NUMBER 1 & NUMBER 2
are KEY to getting your cat back.
3. Call the police 3 times the first day at 8 hour
intervals. Speak with each dispatcher on each shift.
Then call all 3 shifts every 2-3 days.
4. Call the Animal Control Officer
in your town and find out what Pound your town uses.
Your town might use a Pound that is 10 or 20 miles
away in another town. There may be more than one,
so make sure to ask. Most towns have a contract
with 1 or more Pounds, it's your tax dollars so
call for help. Fax them your flyer (Police, Animal
Control and the Pounds). Call the Pound every 2
5. Call/Email all the local Animal
Shelters and Rescue Groups. Fax/Email them your
flyer, make sure you have a picture, description
and contact info.

or on Missing Pets.
7. Call all of your local Vet Clinics
8. Cats are Crepuscular NOT Nocturnal.
So look for kitty during the Dawn and Dusk hours.
They will sleep during the day.
9. Don't assume that kitty did not
cross a busy Street or Highway! Yes, they will cross
over, so look there too.
10. Remember, time is of the essence.
It's critical to your cats life that you don't wait.
Act now and save your cat lots of fear, pain and
suffering. Kitty is scared to death and needs you
to show your love by putting everything on hold
for him. You can sleep when you get him back.
Follow our directions and you have
an excellent chance of getting kitty back!
