Recovery plans for a missing pet would include the following: · Initiate a search. If your cat is the one who is missing, try to think like your cat: check those favorite haunts; look under shrubs and cars.
(According to Pet Detective Kat Albrecht, “Sometimes it takes weeks, even months to find a missing cat.”) Try setting out baited humane traps.
Enlist the help of neighborhood children, and offer them a reward.
· Focus on other pets in the household, if there are any, since they too may be missing their animal companions.
· Rattle some treats in a bag or a dish as you call your pet’s name.
If you see anyone along the way, inform them of your search.
Please don’t underestimate how difficult this kind of ambiguous loss can be.
