😻TIPS to FIND LOST CATS!

📍CATS are known for hiding in bushes, around and under vehicles. It is a good idea to search for them in the evening with a flashlight, to shine in bushes and under cars to see their eyes in the glow of the light.

* Alert all neighbors on your street your cat is missing and to be on the lookout.

* Put litter your cat is used to inside a humane trap or pet taxi/kennel, place it outside for your cat to smell it (do NOT clean it)

* Tuna/Cat Food will usually draw a cat home

* Leave several things the cat loves that have it's home scent on the porch by the front door, on the back porch, and if you have a garage leave stuff by the door at the edge of the garage the garage door cracked for your cat to come inside.

* Search storm drains on the streets in your neighborhood, small animals can fall in and cannot get out on their own.

* Cats usually do not travel too far from home and come back on their own.
