If you have lost your cat and you are at your wits’ end as to what to do next to recover your lost cat, try Tabby Tracker. Tabby Tracker is a Web site where pet owners can register and then search the online database for cats. Pet owners whose cats have not wandered off can also pre-register their cats in case they are lost in future, to help facilitate their safe return if they stray.
Tracking Lost Cats
If your cat is lost, you can search the Found Cats listings for your cat based on their identifying characteristics such as their breed or your post/ zip code. After searching through the database for your lost cat, you should then send a message to the person who found your cat to arrange for the safe return of the cat.
However, if you do not find your cat in the Lost Cats section, you can register your lost cat so that whenever a cat that matches your lost cat’s description shows up, you will receive e-mail alerts.
Search the Lost Cats listings to see if the cat you have found fits the description of the cat you have come across. Search by breed, or other identifying marks, as well as the zip/ post code where the cat was found. If, after searching through the Found Cats listings you find the cat’s owner, use the Tabby Tracker form to contact the owner in order to notify them of your discovery. But if the cat does not show up in the Lost cat listings, register the cat’s details in the Found Cat listings.
Tabby Tracker is not just devoted to tracking down lost and found cats. The site also allows pet owners to pre-register their cat in case he runs off. Doing so can make it easier to track him down in the event he does go missing. Cats that are marked as “presumably safe” will be seen by finders, but they will only contact you if they find a cat that fits your cat’s description that was lost, but not marked as “lost.”
Some pet owners post a reward for the safe return of their cat. However, Tabby Tracker does not have the power to enforce the reward if a finder returns a cat to an owner who had promised a reward.
Coping with the loss of a pet can be difficult when you are worried about where your cat could be or if he is even still alive. However, Tabby Tracker is a tool that can help you to find your lost cat, as you search the lost and found listings. Tabby Tracker also allows pet owners to pre-register their cat in case the cat wanders off.
