Follow this checklist --

  • View our How to Find a Lost Cat video tutorial
  • Check local shelters’ websites every 3 days for new arrivals
  • Check Nextdoor for the neighborhood where your cat was lost and create a lost cat post with picture
  • Check and post to the many lost pet Facebook pages for our area
  • Check Craigslist for found cat posts in the Lost & Found category and create a lost pet ad with picture
  • If your cat has a microchip, contact your microchip company and ensure your phone number is updated in their system
  • If your cat is an indoor-only cat that got outside, it probably panicked from the stimulus, bolted, and hid nearby in a neighbor’s yard. Cats tend to hide within a few houses of where they went missing.
  • If your cat was outside regularly, something may have scared your cat out of his/her territory. Most outdoor cats are found within a 17-house radius of where they went missing.
  • Post small flyers on neighbors’ doors asking them to check under their decks or other possible hiding places. Post large flyers at major intersections around your neighborhood.
  • Check the lost cat posts at other local animal shelters
