If a cat has been lost, a cat that has been kept for two or three years or four years has been lost. Isn’t this the loss of a child in the family? Worry, sadness and fear are for sure, but we must be calm. If a cat is lost, we should find it in time. But how to find it and how to find it, please read this article carefully for a rainy day.
1¡¢ The time after a cat is lost can be divided into three stages
For example, the most likely time to find a cat near the house is 72 hours before the cat is found.
The second stage: the first 7-10 days after the loss is still the crucial time to retrieve the cat. The cat is still around for the most part and won’t go far. Especially if there is a feeding place or gathering place for stray cats nearby. A cat’s nature can easily lead it to a place where it’s a conglomeration, even if it’s never been there. The term “nearby” is generally within 400-1km / 2km for sterilized cats. Of course, this data is only for reference. It also depends on the surrounding environment and whether the residential area is closed or not.
Stage 3: 7 or 10 days later, if the cat can’t find a place to eat and drink nearby, it may choose to go further. Therefore, the probability of finding it is reduced. However, it is not impossible. Many cases are found after missing for one or two months, so these figures can only be used as reference.
2¡¢ Smell points home
Cats who usually live at home do not go out, so even if it is a place where they have lived for a long time, they may not know each other once they go out. In particular, the buildings and units are very similar. So if it’s not a cat that often goes out, there’s no question of knowing the house
You can sprinkle some of the used litter (with its smell) around, especially under the windows. You should not let the cleaners sweep away directly. And its rice bowl basin, can also put the windowsill. In short, it has its smell, such as its urine cushion, or its familiar smell, its favorite food, canned food and so on.
3¡¢ Performance when seeing a cat
After the cat is lost, there are basically two different reactions: one is afraid, but still knows its owner, and will come out when he hears the owner’s voice. It’s lucky to do that. The second is that they are so scared that they don’t know who they are. They run when they see them. If so, be patient. Don’t scare the cat away because of his urgency. No matter what kind of situation, the cat is very frightened in the strange environment outside. Once you see it, don’t cry out in surprise. Be as calm as possible and approach slowly as usual at home! It’s best to carry a cat bag with you, or keep it at your fingertips. Because once you catch a cat, you will often struggle madly, or cover your head with a quilt, blanket, sheet, clothes and so on. In short, you must not loose it at this time! Otherwise, it will be very difficult to catch it next time.
4¡¢ A good time to find a cat
In addition to recommending the dead of night (after about 10 p.m.), you can also according to your cat’s work and rest habits. For example, I searched for nearly 20 hours in a row. During this period, I saw Moji twice and ran away when I saw me. Later it occurred to me that he usually ate at 5 or 6 in the morning. So I went home to have a rest for an hour and went down to look for food at 5 o’clock. At 5 o’clock in the morning, it’s still quiet outside and the visibility is good (he’s a black cat). He’s hungry and tired all day, and it’s his usual time to eat.. It turns out that not only has it been found, but food has also played a role. By the way, many cats run out. Even if there is a place for cats to eat, they often can’t eat or drink in the first few days. First, they are afraid, and the second is that they will be bullied by the local cats there. Therefore, this can be used.
5¡¢ The Enlightenment of looking for cats
This should be done at the first time after the discovery of the lost cat, because this is probably the easiest thing to do. It is best to post photos of cats and post them widely wherever possible. Maybe you will get unexpected results.
6¡¢ Personalized cat search scheme
Generally speaking, it is important to combine the life and personality of your cat, and the specific living environment, such as building or bungalow, separate building or enclosed community, whether the courtyard is close to the road, whether there is a feeding point or a stray cat community around, etc. if the cat is lost, it can be anxious, but it can’t be distracted. No one knows him / her better than you. Calm down and think about it. Considering all the possible related factors and formulating a personalized recovery plan according to the specific situation, is the key to success in finding a cat.
7¡¢ The best way
Cats are highly sensitive and emotional creatures, which are worth learning more about. In addition to understanding the personality of their own cats, but also to understand the general characteristics of some cat. You can do more accumulation in peacetime, through the Internet or books, to understand the basic habits and behavior of cats, so that the situation will not be crazy. For example, many cats run out of the building, usually not to run downstairs, but to the upstairs. Therefore, the dead corner of the corridor, behind the stacking of furniture and sundries, and the stairwell are the places where cats may hide. These are related to the cat’s habits, if you can understand these common sense in advance, it may play a great role in the critical time. More importantly, we can prevent accidents in the bud. If we can avoid accidents and make them not happen at all, that is the best way. For example, cats who live in buildings often run out of doors because they can’t tell the difference between the doors of other rooms. Therefore, cats should be trained to stay away from the door from the beginning (stop shouting, watering pots, etc.).
The screen window is also a part to be checked frequently. Many so-called “new type screen window” have their own surface. If you poke a few times, the screen will come out of the seam, or it will be missed. You must check it more or replace the anti cat scratch screen (Taobao has it, it is cheap). If it is a push-pull window, you can clip a big clip on the window frame on the other side of the window sash, so that the cat can hardly push the window open. Lost cats often occur in shared environment. For example, the one who shares the House fails to close the door or window, or the visiting relatives and friends do not pay attention to opening and closing the doors and windows, which leads to the cat running away. Therefore, people who share a cat should pay more attention from the beginning and explain the situation and precautions with the same room. If the other party wants to receive guests, please inform him in advance to avoid you Set up a good cat, and can post some reminder note in the relevant eye-catching position, remind to close the door, close the window and so on.
Having said that, Xiaobian is very complicated. In short, cats (including other animals) are the weakest group in today’s human society. When making any decision related to them, please remember: what kind of life they are going to live is completely controlled by your and my thoughts! For us, the difference between one thought and another is often a profound difference. Lasting love, care and responsibility, not only can avoid a lot of accidents, but also the biggest and ultimate guarantee of feline happiness and safety!
