The topic: From the Mailbag


I got this in my email yesterday:



“I recently had two indoor cats go missing. One two weeks ago and the other 4 days ago. I have placed fliers on poles, hadned them out to everyone I saw, walk the area 3-5 hours a day, placed wet and dry food at front and back doors, check shlters daily and just placed a trap at a possible sighting. Is there any advise you could give me or ideas on how to lure them home? I am exhausted and devastated by this ordeal and am desperating trying to find them. i would greatly appreciate any assistance you could give me.



Lorey, what an awful thing to have happened.  If you haven’t yet, check out my webpage Finding Your Lost Cat, written by Sharon Talbert of Friends of Campus Cats.

First and foremost, keep in mind that they’re most likely quite close to home.  And because they left so close in time, most likely together. 

Look for them in the evening and at night.  Cats are nocturnal and they’ll probably be sleeping and hiding during the daylight hours, coming out when the sun goes down.  Put something with your scent by your door (on your porch if you’ve got one).  Get a flashlight and look under bushes and around planted areas.  Think like a cat.  Where would you go if you were terrified and wanted to hide? 

Put food out for them. Don’t give up.

Good luck.


Also Lostandfound.com, and Petfinder.com has a message board with Lost & Found pets.

if you can put out a shirt or something that has your sent on it, that would help bring them home.  Good luck!!
