This looks like a cat that was at my house yesterday except he did have a collar on - if it’s the same cat, he’s very friendly- I also saw him in late May and I took him to a local vet to be scanned but they could not find a microchip - is this the same cat (picture below):
•File reports with several area animal shelters in a wider area, filing a report with an animal shelter is required by law within 48 hours. Filing a report does not mean you have to bring the pet into the shelter unless you cannot keep the pet for safe holding. It is in case of anyone looking for their lost pet. You cannot rehome a pet unless you have tried in good faith to locate the owner.
•Upload photos to PetcoLoveLost (dot)org for facial recognition software to help match to photos of lost and found pets
•Make a post on NextDoor and Neighbors by Ring apps (free neighborhood apps), and post flyers around the area since some people are not on social media.
Please note that owners may speak other languages, may have had a medical emergency, may be traveling and the pet was under the care of a pet sitter and may be unaware that their pet is lost.
🚨Please require proof of ownership if someone tries to claim the pet (other photos or videos of or with the pet, pet license, description of unique birth marks, pet’s gender, verified adoption papers, etc). Some people falsely claim pets to resell or abuse them.
⚠️ Do not interact with anyone directing you to email them, send you a number from your phone, or contact them on Insta -Scam
Thank you for caring!
Is someone holding the cat or was it only spotted? If being held, please get the cat scanned for a microchip at any vet clinic, animal shelter or 24 hour pet hospital. It’s free to scan. Be sure they scan thoroughly several times since microchips can migrate.
