Remember:
  • the earlier you report your cat as missing, the more likely it is that he will be found; 
  • when your cat does return, inform any authorities looking for him;  
  • consider having your cat microchipped.
  • Check your pet insurance policy to see if support is available for leafleting the area or offering a reward.
