I used to have indoor/outdoor cats… And my neighboors were CONSTANTLY stealing them!

They’d find their way back a week or so later, smelling like old lady perfume…

@Rachel631:  So glad I don’t have to sit on eggshells waiting to hear the end of the story that YOU FOUND HER!  Yay!  Also – just have to say that I love how you used peer-reviewed research to determine the most effective search technique.

@BrandNewBride: Ha, we totally used to do that when we lived in an apartment building, except the kitty would roll on home smelling like cans of tuna fish 😉

I hope you find your kitty!  I have never had a pet go missing so can’t imagine how stressful it is.  My cat growing up went outside on a leash attached to a patio chair so she couldn’t get away.  I tried to take my new cat out like that and he was like “eff this” and ran back into the house, never wanting to leave it again.

My work colleague lost her cat for a week, and finally found her when an elderly ladies hair dresser called and said her client was talking about her new cat that matched her lost car posters.  The elderly lady lived right behind her and had had the cat the whole time!

ETA: i see you found her, yay!

Always microchip your pets.

We had some very severe tornadoes here recently. A lot of animals were lost and displaced. Microchipping was the best way to ensure people got their pets back. 

ETA: When you microchip, always keep a photo of your pet on the website if appliable. I get a lot of e-mails from Homeagain that pets are lost and people either do not have any information on the pet other than “Last seen at” or have no photo at all.

@Rachel631:  I love the tracker idea, too bad my moms cat removes his collar! I once had a cat go missing and saw him a year later ( he had a very distinct tail ) when I knocked on the ladies door she asked how she Luke help me hen I told her she had my missing orange kitty she said no! And slammed the door in my face, I guess she grew attached to the cat. I was 13 at the time, what kind of woman keeps a child’s pet fom her? Hmm oh well at least he looked well cared for.
