Where do our community cats come from? From lost and abandoned cats. One way to reduce the number of free-roaming cats is to reunite lost cats with their families.

Lost Cat Checklist
Here are some things you can do right now to prevent the loss of your cat.
- Microchip your cat.
- Have your cat altered. Cats who are spayed / neutered are more likely to stay close to home.
- Build a catio or install deer fencing to keep your cat secure on your property.
- If you have a door-dasher, teach your cat to stay away from the door. Keep a can of rocks or pennies near the door and shake it if they linger near the door. If that doesn’t work, place a “Scat Mat” at your door threshold. This battery run device makes the feet tingle or gives a small shock depending on the setting you choose. Available on Amazon.com and other pet supply stores.
Have you lost or found a cat? Please post the cat here at Helping Lost Pets.
Posting on HeLP will ensure that your cat shows up on the Washington registry of lost and found cats. This map-based system works great because people can search by map or area making it much easier to match lost and found cats. Once you post on helpinglostpets.com/pet , the cat’s flyer will be posted automatically on the state page and then volunteers will share the post to local Facebook pages.How t
