If you've ever lost a cat, or know someone who has, you will know how upsetting and stressful it is. And you can help avoid others going through it.

For the first time ever, the Missing Pet Partnership and university researchers are studying missing cat behaviour and the most effective ways of finding them.

This world-wide study will ultimately lead to training programs for shelter staff and rescue groups, saving many cats’ lives.

Whether you found your cat or not, please participate in this critical study and share it with others in your network. It will take 10 – 15 minutes. You can complete it multiple times for different cats. https://www.surveymo...missingcatstudy

Please let others know.

The pioneering work of the Missing Pet Partnership (www.missingpetpartnership.org) into displaced cat behaviour has enabled me to find many escaped foster cats who are with rescue groups I'm involved with.  Although microchipped, many of them would have behaved 'feral' at a shelter and may have had a very bad outcome. :unsure2:

The MPP has a wealth of info about finding missing cats on their website and YouTube channel.

As ours are indoor with enclosures, we've never had this horrible experience, thankfully.

Excellent! There are some home-built enclosures that haven't been as well built as yours, and cats have got out from them. Stressful.
