General advice: If you have not done so already: Go to any animal shelter, vet clinic or 24 hour pet hospital to get it scanned for a microchip for free. Be sure they scan thoroughly several times including legs since microchips can migrate. •Keep in mind that a tipped ear doesn’t always mean it’s feral. They tip ears to show it’s been spayed/neutered, too. There’s many posts where a tipped ear cat was someone’s pet. •File a free initial report with PawBoost, •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. •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!

Some animal shelters or rescue troops will loan you a humane trap. Place food inside. Must be checked frequently. I know some local trappers if you would like their numbers. Thanks for helping this cat! Searchable words: black or dark gray / grey and white cat
