Cats are animals that enjoy routines. They are used to feeling and hearing the same smells and voices. Avoid taking them on holiday or to your friends’ places. This generates considerable stress for them. Indeed, when the cat finds itself in an unknown place, it hides away immediately because this environment seems dangerous to it.

When you go looking for your cat, several provisions are necessary:

  • Privilege searches in the evening or during the night. In addition to avoiding noises that would complicate your search, you will have more chances to find your pet because it is mainly active at night. Indeed, cats hunt at night and darkness gives them a sense of security.
  • Call him calmly and at regular intervals. It's useless to add extra stress to it. Repeat this each evening preferably.
  • Always have a flashlight with you. The light from your torch can reflect in your cat's eyes and make it easier to spot.

Cats enjoy familiar and repetitive noises. Try to reproduce reassuring noises for him: shake a bag of croquettes, use the sound of his toys (eg bells), etc. It may encourage him to come back to you.

Inform locals as well as local shops. Leave them a poster, which you can generate via the PetAlert interface in three formats adapted to your needs:

  • The A4 format is perfect for display in shops or exteriors, because it allows good readability.
  • For building entrances, we recommend the A5 format.
  • Then, flyers (A6 size) are ideal for slipping into mailboxes or bulletin boards of stores in your neighborhood.

Make the list of probable hiding places and check them:

  • Heights: walls, roofs, trees, etc.
  • Heat zones: car engine, electrical appliance, ducts, etc.
  • Private areas: construction sites, garages, shops, cellars, garbage rooms, etc.

Inform the police, surrounding veterinarians, shelters and the local SPA to find out if it has been dropped off.
