In lieu of answering a reader question this week, Rose De Dan, Ask An Animal Reiki Shaman columnist, has chosen to write an article with general information on how to find a lost pet.

Rose says "Since beginning this column I have received many requests to help find a lost dog or cat, a service that I don't offer, and even if I did it would be an impossible question to answer in the context of a free advice column.

Read Rose's helpful advice for locating a lost cat or dog.

My step-brother found our cat Isabella one night in January in the rain when she was a small kitten. She had no collar and she wasn’t in a residential area, so his feeling was that she probably didn’t have a home. But I’ve always wondered if there were people who wondered what happened to her?

Somehow I wish they could know that she found a warm and loving home and is now a healthy 10-yr-old cat!

On the more concrete side of things these tips might help find lost pets:

Re: point 2, it’s helpful to know that indoor cats who get out don’t often wander too far from home. Cats who are indoor /outdoor more have more of a territory to roam. As mentioned, frightened indoor cats can become very frightened and hide often within feet of their homes.

A useful resource is findtoto.com, a company that employs a sort of amber alert system, which uses a call center to notify all numbers within pre-defined radii of the pet’s home.

Another fact to consider along the lines Rose mentioned aboput personality/flight types is that people are much more inclined to stop to help “friendly” looking breed types like Labradors than they are “scary” looking dogs, which could include Pits, Dobies, Rotties, and even to some extent, black dogs in general. These types of dogs can use all the good press they can get, for this and other reasons.

Hi Meredyth, kudos to your family for taking in little Isabella (who is not so little anymore). Sadly I agree with your stepbrother, she probably did not have a loving home until guided to your family. However I do believe that we are wining the war on pet overpopulation as people become more educated and aware.

Beth, thanks for those excellent additional tips. I’m sure they will be of value to those who seek as well as those who have found.
