💓 MAKE A HUGE NEON POSTERs and a BILLBOARD ...in case someone took him in months ago and not aware he is lost... 💓 NEON POSTERS r In front of your home and near a busy intersection everyone tends to drive by in your neighborhood. the guardian of lost cat ‘Claude’ created 2 of these HUGE NEON POSTERS - 1 was placed in front of her residence and the other was placed at the nearest busy intersection...(Claude is safe home now) 💓 BILLBOARD Make a HUGE BillBoard using a TARP, duct tape and Blown up photo of kitty (kinkos or fedex) - to tie up either by freeway entrance or exit or if not near freeeway then at the busiest intersection near you to ensure everyone in the neighborhood is aware to call you upon sighting. 💓 Tip: Print 16”x20” of clear full body photo of your cat (crop the photo to remove as much background so it’s just your cat) Fedex Print stores charges $11 for one color copy, available overnight. Cut out your cat and glue/tape to each huge neon sign and for the Billboard. Certain supplies like NEON paper and Tarp and duct tape for letters have been found at the Dollar store try there first.

Praying someone is caring for your sweet Shotgun...someone who doesn't look online and may have missed the flyers you posted up initially...it would be worth doing another round of posting up FLYERS and taping mini flyers to neighbor's front doors ...2 years ago I searched for a lost blind 18 year old cat - the guardian was elderly too and not mobile enough to flyer so I did for her...the 70th apt i knocked on - about a block away - ended up having the cat inside their apt - it was a young couple who saw the cat who was meowing at them...they cared for the cat like a child - old cats do not go far at all but if picked up by a nice human who lives in the neighborhood then they may not see flyers if they are just on your block. Consider posting up flyers a few blocks out from all directions on lamposts place flyers inside 'clear sheet protectors' with opening facing downward so they don't get ruined by the morning dew🐱💜💜💜💜💜💜 I'm so deeply sorry for all this time not knowing what happened to your dear furry baby 💜💜💜💜💜

Dear guardian...this photo makes me cry...she looks like such a sweetie..i'm so sorry you haven't found her yet. i keep thinking A cat this old would hopefully have been picked up by a neighbor becase she could not go far ...If you haven't already done so..go door to door with flyers (place in mailboxes if not home) and post up flyers around your block again ...indoor cats are found within 150 feet and a senior cat LESS. i just worry kitty got into a crawl space from your home or next door? Worth checking again ...I found lost cat Martha (blind mostly deaf) by knocking on doors ...it was the 71st door I knocked on that it turned out a nice young couple who had taken her in...I know that's an exception but there are nice people who would have taken her into their home or to the shelter so you need to check shelters - call and send photo and make sure. Praying for your sweet kitty...🐱💖🙏

🐱🙏💖I’m so sorry kitty is still missing. Please do Not lose hope or stop taking action. Lost cat ‘Ninja’ was found within the block after 71 days of us searching for him! He was 6 houses away after 71 days! Don’t give up the search… 'Lost cat Alan' on Pawboost was reunited after 129 days! His guardians wouldn’t give up and didn’t stop searching …a neighbor spotted ALAN - a neighbor they had spoke to while going door to door - it was the 3rd time they had done the rounds reminding neighbors their kitty was still missing..do not lose hope…Keep taking action🐱🙏💖 🐱THERE's. A BREAK FROM THER RAIN! TODAY PRINT more flyers to post up on lampposts beyond your block and replace the ones on your block if the old ones are worn .... put new flyers in the "clear sheet protectors" with the opening facing down so they last from the rain …(previous post shows example - you can buy at fedex print store, target, staples or amazon) 🐱 TODAY - TALK TO YOUR NEIGHBORS - PRINT OUT a map of your block with the address #s showing and go door to door to ask or remind your dear neighbors that your cat is still missing and you are needing their help to spot kitty more than ever - people have short memories - they DO need to be reminded. Talk to dog walkers on your street - they are outside at all times and have helped me spot lost kitties I was helping with many times....It's never a waste of time talking to neighbors ..the more eyes you have the better...Keep track on the printed map which folks you spoke to and which you need to return to try again - the goal is to speak to as many neighbors as possible... 💜💜PLACE A CAMERA 💜💜motion activated with night vision (like a mini blink camera) - AIMED at bowl with wet food (and water) near outside the door and review camera footage daily - you can't believe how many times a cat will return home and has no way of getting back inside and/or the owners stops going out at night so the cat disappears back into the night...or the cat just remains outside even with the door slightly open (in a survival mode) This has happened recently in multiple cases where a guardian catches their cat on camera after weeks of no sightings …then they either end up going out during the same time every night or they end having to humanely trap their cat because kitty kept running away from the owner. (once back inside the survival mode turns off and they are back to being purry cozy kitty) Place wet food out with a camera (that will snap images or video upon movement) you may see other cats, raccoons and other creatures eat the food..that's ok...keep refilling the WET food as he may turn up one of these nights - I’ve done this many times and always SO happy I did because the camera gives the hope you need! (raccoons LOVE dry cat food so wet food is better) 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) . 🐱Once kitty is spotted on camera or by your neighbor then you can sent a HUMANE CAT TRAP - which must be monitored every single second it is ‘set’. You can RENT a trap from the SPCA or borrow a trap - ask folks on Nextdoor (cat owners group) if anyone has a trap you can borrow (If you live in SF I have one to lend you) Sometimes cats are caught on camera eating and NOT coming inside even when the guardian has left the door open..some cats stay in a kind of survival mode (like a switch was flipped) which helps them survive but sometimes gets in the way with them returning inside on their own. It could take days/weeks to get them on camera but once they find this source of food they will return…and some nights it will be different cats or raccoons…they all watch each other from afar…once caught on camera you can set a trap and monitor it from a distance making sure you don’t trap another creature. 💥WiFI Camera with night vision example: https://a.co/5Pb6VTA OR a MINI BLINK CAMERA 🐱Check for found cats on PAWBOOST, NEXTDOOR, your local ANIMAL SHELTERS DAILY… 💜💜 VISIT IN PERSON 💜💜the shelter’s closest to you every 5 days.. Some cats will end up at your animal shelter and some will never show up - we just don’t know how LUCK plays out so this is why you must COVER ALL POSSIBILITIES.There are SO many FOUND cats brought in every single day. Some are not shown online this is why you have to physically go in and check for yourself. MANY lost cats are reunited long after a month. Many cats end up at a shelter after their guardian has unfortunately stopped checking and that is just heart breaking. 🐱Most Lost cats are found by their determined guardians or informed neighbors…but some cats DO get trapped and/or brought to a shelter without you knowing. So you MUST check in person every 4-5 days. 🐱Keep posting updates on Nextdoor and pawboost ..talk to your neighbors, update flyers, call for kitty at night, leave food and water out and get a camera to check footage every day. sending you LOVE , determination and sustained hope.. Damia Foti🐱🙏💖
