Tips on Finding Cats Check everywhere inside the house. They can get into very small and unusual places - holes under cabinets, inside ceilings if there are tiles, closets, food cabinets, closets, etc. Cats have even been found inside couches. The cat may be hiding somewhere to stay warm. Check under cars. Cats may even hide inside someone’s car engine. Ask neighbors to check in their garages or under decks and around patios or porches - any space a cat could hide. They tend to get stuck in sheds or other people’s garages. Also, look up in trees. Bring a bag of cat treats or a noisy toy he might be able to recognize the sound. Someone else found his cat by playing friendly cat sounds from his phone or playing the sounds from another pet that may be familiar. Leave smelly socks or dirty laundry near home entrances so they can recognize your scent. This seems to work best. Try using a laser pointer at night to lure the cat out as well. Cats are more active at night check the neighborhood at night as well. They tend not to go far unless they got into a car somehow or someone took them. The sardines or mackerel fish scent can help lead them back home if you create a trail of food leading back to your home. Create an outdoor cat shelter with with straw not hay. Towels and fabrics do not retain heat in cold weather. An insulated box with straw is best. Find local cat trappers and trackers who can help you set up a humane trap near home as well. Animal rescue groups or shelters usually know someone or can loan one.

Tips to find lost cats: • Set out food & water - cats are more likely to roam when they get hungry. Make sure the food is something with a smell that will carry, like tuna, mackerel, or roast chicken. • If possible, leave an opening into the house near where the cat got out. • Go outside with their favorite treat bag/box and rattle the treats while calling for them - do this consistently. Cats tend to be active around dawn & dusk, so those are the best times to look. • Check with your neighbors (go door to door) to ask if they’ve seen your cat and ask if they can keep an eye out; and look under porches, inside garages, up in trees, under cars, and in/around any sheds or bushes where your cat could be hiding - it helps to do this at night with a flashlight, as the light will pick up their eyes and help you spot an otherwise camouflaged kitty. • Cats can squeeze themselves into very small spaces, so check with a flashlight in the spots you don’t think the cat can get in to. • Check in with nearby rescues, shelters, and vets to see if she's been brought in, and repeat every couple of days. • It's possible your cat is nearby (cats typically don’t stray too far unless they need to for food, water, or are being chased) but is too terrified to respond to being called, in which case you want to get a humane trap and bait it with food. • Set out their litterbox, preferably dirty, so that they can track the scent (you may see some people advise against this as it may attract other animals, but so will the food and scent is one of the most reliable way to help a pet find their way home). • Hit up all of the neighborhood social media apps as well as posting fliers. If your pet was adopted through a rescue or shelter you may also want to contact them, as they may have additional resources to help. Dogs Finding Dogs is another helpful resource: • Given the current temperatures, also set up an outdoor shelter for your cat (no blankets or towels - if those get wet an animal can freeze to death on them. Use straw).
