Lost Cat Behavior

There is A LOT of information on the internet on how to find a lost cat.  Unfortunately, much of the information on lost cat behavior and recovery is inaccurate and can even have you doing things that decrease the chances of finding your lost cat.  For example, I generally do NOT recommend putting your cat's litter box outside.  Make sure that you are getting reliable information by getting it from this site or those resources listed below.
