Please post on Cat Owners Group on Nextdoor. Also, please make fliers and put them in your neighbors mailboxes, post flier on telephone polls as well. Kitty may be stuck in a backyard, or shed, may be hunkered down underneath bushes, cars, etc. Pls keep looking. Best times to look at dusk an dawn, carry a flashlight as well. You may want to leave out some of your clothing for kitty to pick up your scent. I hope you find your fur baby soon.

🐱💖🙏Dear guardian. I'm so sorry about your sweet kitty. Your indoor/outdoor kitty could be stuck inside a neighbor’s garage or crawlspace unable to get back (OR GOT spooked by someone or something hiding) and why you must take action in more than one way to cover all possibilities - ESPECIALLY in person – with the neighbors on your block to start! Taking ACTION IN PERSON is CRITICAL Leave A WAY BACK INSIDE for kitty all day/night- 'escape' door/window'garage slightly open 5” with litter box outside, bedding (+food/water). If escaped from the front (and you have a garage) leave garage door open 5" with wet food and water bowl far inside and kitty’s bedding further inside (lights left off!) If kitty escape from back, leave back door wedged open 5” water and wet food just inside. SEARCH AND CALL for kitty consistently throughout the day AND ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT from 9 PM UNTIL 6AM (when it’s quiet, dark and cats feel ‘safer’ to move out of hiding) Set your alarm for 11pm, 1AM 3AM 5AM...go out and call for kitty in a CALM NORMAL voice & wait...shake treats (if that is something kitty normally responds to) I can’t tell you how many kitties come out of hiding during these late hours…(or you can hear meows if trapped in your next door neighbors garage or backyard for example)...be consistent ...kitty needs to hear your voice… GAIN ACCESS TO YOUR NEIGHBORS YARDS: Knock on your neighbors doors and Get permission for YOU to check their yards physically day and evening...explain to them how kitty will hide from strangers and it's best for you to check anywhere kitty could be hiding (they are excellent silent hiders and when they get stuck it’s often hard to get to) ASK YOUR NEIGHBORS to check their RING CAMERA footage and every small place a cat get into; storage unit, crawl spaces, openings in walls, under porches, inside sheds, garages, laundry rooms, under cars,under bushes… NOTE: people will often see a cat outside and WON’T do anything unless they know your cat is missing! PRINT FLYERS ASAP to give your neighbors and POST UP around your block. Print 100 Flyers and KNOCK ON YOUR NEIGHBORS DOORS ASAP starting with your block - with the first 5 neighbors to the left, 5 to the right, 5-10 across the street (if escaped from front) and 5+ neighbors directly behind (if escaped from back) POST FLYERS on streetlamps in clear sheet protectors with the opening facing downward so the weather doesn’t ruin them. Google: “protective sheet covers” You can Download a flyer ‘template’ on www HappyCatLady com, I always encourage folks to offer a reward FOR A PHOTO of your kitty...to encourage neighbors to search for kitty and to call you if they spot kitty instead of approaching and potentially spooking kitty. You can purchase at FEDEX PRINT store near you when you can pick up your prints (order online for pick up even if they’re closed. call once open , and ask if they can PRINT right away due to the urgency. I have found that if you’re nice, fedex staff will always will print quickly. NOTE: They sell sheet protectors along with packing tape for posting on lampposts and the safe painters tape (for adhering flyers directly onto front doors) NOTE: MANY people are NOT on Facebook or Nextdoor so you MUST go door to door in person, circle your block and across the street - make sure every neighbor knows about kitty . ASK neighbors to check their yards / garages /sheds. Kitty could be stuck / trapped (this happens all the time!) and talking to your neighbors will hopefully engage them into helping. PRINT OUT A GOOGLE MAP OF YOUR BLOCK with address #s showing so you can take notes on who you’ve talked to and which houses to try again later if no one answers ..keep trying..you want to talk to every residence around your block and across the street to start…the map print out helps you keep track as it's easy to get mixed up when you're stressing out.....(see example further below). The goal is to TALK to as many neighbors IN PERSON as possible -this increases the chance of your kitty getting spotted. PLACE A CAMERA (motion activated with night vision) out the escape door pointed at the wet food bowl / review footage daily/nightly (replenish food if not eaten) - you can't believe how many times a cat will return home - eat - has no way of getting back inside and the owners stops going out at night so the cat disappears back into the night...you may see other cats, raccoons and other creatures eat the food..that's ok...replace the WET food only (raccoons LOVE dry cat food so wet is best) you can buy motion sensor camera on amazon over night - connect to wifi...OR a wild life camera with playback feature (battery operated - no wifi needed) … WiFI Camera with night vision example https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07Z841XYD... WIldlife camera wifi not needed / eight AA batteries: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B099F54JJ4… DON’T GIVE UP...Lost Cat ‘Clementine’ was finally spotted after 29 days 1.5 yards away! a neighbor who we flyered and spoke to 2 weeks earlier spotted kitty in her backyard and we ended up having to trap her because she remained in survival mode and wouldn't come forward to her human (a few days later she was back to normal). And then there was lost cat ‘Lina’ of 2 weeks was spotted returning home (video footage in backyard) but was too scared to come inside - the owner had to coax her for hours and hours for 2 nights...each cat is different and needs our patience & determination… RE: ONLINE: - Post on www.Nextdoor com under ‘lost & found’ and ‘cat owners’ group. with your exact address (or address range like 1000-1050 3rd street cross street Cherry ave for example) - Post on Facebook group for lost pets: Search in your city For San Francisco https://www.facebook.com/groups/lostpetinsanfrancisco/. - Report kitty is lost on 24petconnect.com Check for FOUND cats - Send your Lost Cat flyer to your local shelters (find online) And also Check for FOUND cats at shelters near you online daily and IN PERSON every 5 days. Make sure your microchip info is up to date. NEXTDOOR INVITE: https://nextdoor.com/invite/tlpjrfjfsfzzypgctspp INVITE LINK TO NEXTDOOR ‘CAT OWNERS GROUP:https://nextdoor.com/g/qazvu50sq/ Be patient. dont give up! xoxo , damia foti 650.339.6619 P.S. See below - example of printing google map and taking notes as you knock on doors. F = flyered (not home) and add names of folks you talk to in person - the goal is to speak to everyone in person in order to engage them - ask them to search their premises and to call you the second they think they see your kitty (and to take a photo) Keeping track is a HUGE HELP - I often return days later to people I've spoken to - to remind them to continue to look around and to check on their RING doorbell footage or backyard video footage - for those neighbors that have cameras! See my Example of LOST cat FLYER + Clear Sheet protector + keeping track with Google Map: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZDSAf2ky52_Cizzu8HPGQOjU3pVqcmhf/view?usp=sharing LOST CAT GRAPHIC FOR POSTING.png !! WARNING !! New Scam Alert. Scammers will text you saying they’re affiliated with Pawboost and that they HAVE YOUR CAT and that YOU need to PROVE who you are by giving other phone numbers, your email, verifying google codes etc . These are all SCAMMERS - they may tell you meet them somewhere BUT THEY WON'T Send you a PHOTO of your cat (they'll make up any excuse) Tell them you know they are scammers and to stop! Please Trust that If a neighbor sees or has your cat they will give you info freely and not play any strange ‘prove you are the owner of kitty’ games…
