If your cat becomes lost, act quickly. Any delay in searching for your pet will make finding him harder. Go outside and call his name. If he does not normally go outside, he will be overwhelmed and may not leave your yard.
If your cat is trained to come when you call him, he may come running right back to you.
Ask everyone you know to help you look for your pet. Post flyers with a photo, description, your phone number, and your address all over the area. Call the local animal shelter or animal control agency, and give them a description of your cat and contact numbers where you can be reached.
Next, call the newspaper and run an ad. Keep looking for your cat on your own, and call local animal shelters and rescue organizations every day to see if anyone has turned in an animal fitting your pet's description.
All cats, even indoor only cats, should wear a collar with an id tag at all times. If your pet is micro chipped, it will be easier and faster for someone to call a phone number on the id tag than to find someone to scan for a microchip.
Cats are creative and can find many ways to get in trouble around the house. Some common feline behavior problems is clewing on or digging up houseplants. Cats who eat plants may be looking for extra roughage or greenery in their diet.
Buy some cat grass (grass that has been especially grown for cats and that is safe for them to eat) at your local pet supply store and offer it to your cat. It should solve the nibbling problem.
If not, spray the leaves of the plant with a mild solution of soap and water or cat repellent. You also can hang your plants from hooks or move them to a place where they can not be reached.
