a heart when your cat gets lost. Most cats climb the tallest
structure and are afraid to come down. Since cats are cats, they will
not make a sound when they hear you calling them. You must keep your
eyes open to find your cat. Remember, you are the only person
responsible for your cat. No, the fire-brigade would not assist you
if you suddenly find your cat sitting on the top branch of the
tallest tree. The only way to rescue your kitty from its difficult
position is to get the tallest ladder you can find and climb up. It
is much harder than it sounds. It is hardest for people who suffer
from vertigo or have a fear of heights.
comes to ground, cats have some kind of mysterious homing beacon
which helps them to come back to their home-often from hundreds of
miles. Only an outdoorsy or an adventurous cat will roam. Indoor cats
like to go back to their comfortable home as quickly as possible. If
a cat gets scared, it may misjudge its inner compass-and consequently
gets lost. Once it is afraid, things go haywire. Everything will
scare the cat, from new furniture to new animals.
find your cat is not in its usual place, then do not assume its lost.
Kitties have a terrible reputation of hiding in places you would not
even believe they can fit into. Search carefully around the house,
with more attention towards the porch and the garage. Take your cat's
favorite treat in your hand and shout its name. Do note that your cat
may not want to be found. Only the smell of the food may draw it out
from its hiding place. It is a good idea to microchip your cat. It
must also wear a tag and a collar.
waste your time or others. If you have not seen your cat for two
days, there is a far chance that cat is lost. Distribute the photo of
your cat via texting apps like WhatsApp. Try to think like a cat and
go where you think your kitty will visit when nobody is looking.
Crouch low and look underneath porches and bushes. Look out for
something which may have frightened the cat. The latter could be new
construction or even new neighbor. Do not be shy to trespass in
other people's gardens. Simply visit those neighbors and say sorry to
mess up their place of business. Upon returning home, leave water and
food immediately outside the door so that your fearful cat may
succumb to its greed and comes back. Make a poster with your cat's
photo. Paste it where such posters can be legally stuck on walls,
bus-stops, and near taxi-stands.
