What to Do with a Lost Cat
If you find a lost cat, determine whether the cat is feral or a pet. You might be able to approach a lost cat to see if she is wearing a collar or looks well cared for. Lure the cat to you with food. If she allows you to pick her up, check her collar for contact information. Consider taking the lost cat to the police, an animal shelter or the vet to be scanned to see if she has an embedded microchip. If she does, its code can be matched against a database to determine the owner. Check your neighborhood for LOST CAT signs. Consider posting FOUND CAT signs. Some newspapers and online resources allow FOUND ads for free. If you can’t find the owner, you have to decide whether you want to keep the cat or surrender her to an animal shelter. For more information, discuss with your veterinarian Farmers Branch, TX.
