    Finding a Lost Cat | Kitten Ads

    A missing cat can be a stressful and worrying time for cat owners. There are certain measures that you can take to make looking for a cat easier, and strengthen your chances of finding a cat. For more advice on finding a lost cat, read on.

    A Few Tips for Finding Lost Cats

    • When you begin the task of looking for a cat, start by walking slowly and calling the cat’s name out. A missing cat may meow or whimper so listen carefully. A lost cat could also respond to familiar noises. The sounds of the cat’s snack box rattling could attract the lost cat.

    • At night-time, start looking for a cat in your neighbourhood. If you have moved house the cat may go to the old neighbourhood you lived in, so it is worth a check there. Be sure to look under parked cars.

    • Post fliers around the neighbourhood with a photo and a thorough description of the missing cat. Point out any significant marks he may have.

    • Check local press for Lost and Found Cats sections. Also check animal shelters within the area, in case they have a Lost and Found Cats system.

    • Fill a box with items the lost cat will find familiar, such as items of your unwashed clothing. Put this box in your garden, furthest away from your house. Check the box in the mornings and at night in case the lost cat has smelled the items and returned.
