One of the biggest tragedies is losing a cat. Cats often climb out of open windows or slip out doors. Although your cat may be safe today, it’s best to prepare yourself for the future if you cat should ever go missing.

First, identify your cat. The best solution is to get the cat microchipped but you can also get a tattoo on the cat or an identification tag on a breakaway collar. Of course, colors can get lost so a tattoo or a microchip is the best option.

Remember, when a cat goes missing, it often stays close to home so look around your home since cats rarely wander far from their territory. The best time to prepare for a missing cat is before it actually goes missing.
