Use The Best Tools Possible To Bring Your Lost Pet Home!

Every day we put food out for a stray feral cat that we haven’t been able to catch. My husband noticed an injured cat eating the food and went to check on him. He took the cat to the nearest veterinarian for care and posted flyers around the area and I posted on there as well.

He could tell that the cat was well cared for and had an owner because he was so friendly and loving. Several people called thinking the cat might be theirs because he looked like so many other black cats, but we kept some very specific information private hoping the real owner would be able to identify him. We also told the callers that they could go to the veterinarian to identify him and see if he was theirs.

About a week after we found the cat we received a phone call from the rightful owner. Someone made the connection between his friend’s lost cat and our found cat and therefore contacted his friend. The owner was having work done on his house and the painters had left the doors/windows open and his indoor cat ran out. The cat was old, defenseless and evidently injured by another animal while trying to find his way back home.

Coincidentally, the animal hospital we took the cat to was the same one that the owner had always used for his cat’s care. After we verified that he was the owner, he rushed to the clinic to be reunited with his cat. The information I learned from reading the advice on this community helped us avoid giving the cat to the wrong person.

We are so thankful that there is an organization like them that is willing to help reunite owners with their cats. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to this program. I will definitely be recommending it to anyone I hear of who has lost a pet. It’s good to work that you all are doing!
