Cats are naturally curious animals and love playing hide-and-seek with their owners. So, these feline creatures get lost from time to time. If your cat is missing, you shouldn’t be too worried. Instead, you should determine the scope of the search first and then start your search immediately. This blog discusses effective methods that can help in finding your cat. But hopefully, you won’t have to use these methods.
If a cat is lost, the owner is likely to be in a state of anxiety. The following search methods can greatly improve your search efficiency.
Start Searching Immediately
If you start searching immediately, there is a high chance of finding your cat where it was last seen. With increasing time, your cat is more likely to roam further from home. If you recently moved to a new residence, you can search the new place while your partner follows directions to your old place to find your cat.
Avoid Scaring The Lost Cat
Lost cats can be terrified. They may see and hear you calling their names, but they won’t respond, rendering your search pointless. So, instead of screaming your cat’s name, lower your voice and call your cat quietly. Screaming may scare your cat further. In addition, it is best to stop and listen often to hear your cat’s faint meow.
Bring Along Its Beloved Toy
Your cat may have a favorite toy, like a cat teaser. This toy may attract your lost cat’s attention. So, while searching for your cat, take the toy with you and make it visible. This way, you can allay your cat’s fears and bring it out of hiding.
Bring Along Cat’s Litter and Food
When searching for your cat, you can place their litter and food on the way home. Because of their keen sense of smell, your cat can smell the familiar scent, helping them remember their way home.
Search Again When It’s Dark and Quiet
Cats are naturally nocturnal animals. Therefore, darkness gives lost cats a sense of security. You can repeat your daytime route when searching for your cat at night. Also, don’t forget to pay attention to where you left the cat litter or food.
Search Places Where Cats Can Get Trapped
Your cat may remember the way home but is stuck somewhere. When searching, keep an eye on places that can trap your cat. These places include trash cans, construction sites, and parking lots.
Asking for Help Effectively
There is strength in numbers, and more strength increases the likelihood of finding your cat.
You can ask a passerby if he has seen your cat, showing a picture of your cat if you have one. Valuable resources include people who spend a lot of time outside in your neighborhood, like postal workers and children.
Neighbors are not only familiar with the neighborhood, but they may also have seen your cat at ordinary times. Consequently, they pay attention to your cat whenever they see it outside. In addition, neighbors are more likely to join your search team and offer help when your cat goes missing.
From The Local Animal Shelter
A crowded shelter or local pound can only hold your cat for a few days before euthanizing them. Therefore, it is best to check your local shelter in person from time to time. The staff can be a great ally if they know you are actively looking for your cat. You can also ask them to call you if they find a cat that matches your cat’s description.
