Steps To Take When You Find a Lost Cat

If possible, safely contain or confine the cat so it doesn't run away.

Safely Contain  

Look for a collar with tags that identify the cat and owner.

Check for ID   

Call animal shelters to ask about lost cat reports that match the cat found.

Contact Local Shelters  

Make found cat signs with the cat's description to post in the area.

Post Found Signs

Share found cat info and photos on neighborhood groups and pages.

Post on Social Media

A vet can scan for a microchip to identify registered lost cats.

Take to Vet  

Feed, water and safely confine the cat until the owner is located.
