Suggestions to Help Find A Lost Cat
- She is probably hiding somewhere if she's scared. Ask people in the neighbourhood to check
their sheds and under their porches.
- Another cat in the area may find her first, advise the neighbours to listen for "cat fights".
- Go into Animal Control daily, you can recognize your cat best.
- Each day check Kijiji's Lost & Found section under the 'Communities' heading for a Found Cat notice.
The address is http://london.kijiji.ca
Be sure to post a Lost Cat notice there, and in the 'Pets' section also.
Its free and many people look there.
- Post your pets photo and details at www.londonlostpets.ca . They post on Facebook which
reaches a wide range of people.
- Leave the litter pan, with her used cat litter in it, outside by the door as
she may catch the scent of it and find her way home.
A carrier with a favourite blanket and toy inside worked for an Animal Outreach client.
- Post signs along the street. Ensure the writing and picture is large enough to be
quickly read by passing vehicles.
- Put flyers in the mailboxes of your neighbours within at least a two block radius.
Include a clear picture or two on the flyer.
Also post the flyers at veterinarian offices, pet supply stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.
- Go out at night when traffic has calmed. Call and rattle food tin or treat package.
- Find out if there is someone in the neighbourhood feeding cats,
your cat may go there in desperation.
Most of all don't give up!!!
