5 Tips For Finding A Lost Cat
There’s nothing quite like the heartache of losing a cat. When you can’t find your kitty, you might enter a state of panic. That’s perfectly normal. However, you need to take charge of your emotions so that you can work on solving the problem. Believe it or not, there are a few things you can do which will help you find your kitty. Here’s what you need to know.
Make a missing cat poster
This first point is obvious and yet so few people remember to do it. Sometimes, the most old fashioned ways of finding your kitty are the best. Design a simple poster explaining that you’re looking for your missing cat. Add in details such as your kitty’s gender, age, colour, and breed type. You should also include a picture and your contact details.
Put an ad in a local paper
You may want to use the same information to put an advert out in your local newspaper. Usually, it won’t cost you all that much to put a small ad in the classified section. Doing so means that more people will see your details so, if they come across your cat, they will get in touch ASAP.

Visit local shelters
Again, this is one of the tips that many people seem to overlook for some reason. You should visit local cat shelters to see if someone has dropped your pet off there. Call ahead of time and explain your situation. You might just be in luck. Often, when people find missing kitties, they take them to places like shelters. That way that they know they are safe. Genius.
Share a status on Facebook
Never underestimate the power of social media. If you share a status on your Facebook and ask people to share it to, you will get the message around super fast. Again, you will need to include all the details about your pet and contact information. You never know, someone may contact you online.

Leave food and water outside
Finally, you should make sure that you leave food and water outside your house. That way, if your cat happens to come back and you’re not in, they will have some comfort and a reason to stick around. If they have been missing for a while, they will likely be hungry. This little tip really is essential.
