Many lost indoor-only cats can be found if you just know the proper search techniques and the sooner you implement these techniques, the quicker you can find your lost cat. There’s a lot of information on finding lost cats on the internet, but unfortunately, much of this information is wrong or not specific to the unique situation of an escaped or lost indoor-only cat. Don’t waste time following questionable information on the internet and the advice of well-meaning (but potentially ill-informed) friends and family.
If you use the correct search techniques right from the start you may be able to find your lost cat in less than a week and often within a few days. On the other hand, if you try lots of other techniques first, it may take 2-4 weeks to find your lost cat, and some cats are never found.
The Lost Pet Research & Recovery Search Plan for Lost Indoor-Only Cats is tailored specifically to lost indoor-only cats and is based on research and data collected from nearly ten years of experience finding lost cats. I am also the co-author of a published research article on lost cat behavior.
Topics covered include:
- How to conduct an effective search
- How to lure your cat out of hiding
- When to use a search dog
- How to safely catch your cat using a humane trap
- Surveillance techniques to increase the chances of catching your cat
- When to use a feeding station (i.e. place food out for a missing cat)
- How to create truly effective lost cat posters
- Other methods of effective advertising to use
- Find out who you should contact during your search
- How to check potential sightings
- How to catch your cat if you see them
This search plan qualifies for our 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. The guide is 10 pages long and is an instant download. A downloadable link will also be emailed to the email address that you provide during checkout.
IMPORTANT: Is your cat really indoor-only? This checklist applies best to cats that have never been outdoors. If your cat was adopted and has an unknown background, it will still provide some useful information on their behavior. However, if you let your cat outdoors unsupervised for even short periods of time, you should instead look at the Search Plan for Lost Outdoor-Access Cats.
