How I got into lost pet search and rescue

My Story

"how find lost cat?" 

People often ask how I ended up as a pet detective for lost cats.


I show them this photo from 2008 when I lived on a horse farm in Texas. This was my little cabin on Canyon Lake with my horse (Red Rabbit) and my sweet snuggler cat, Mr. Purr.


When Purr went missing for 3 days, I learned first-hand what it feels like when your cat is missing.


No one helped me search or even took me seriously in my panic.


If I had listened to their advice of "He'll come back when he's ready," or the old, "Put his litter box outside!" Mr. Purr would have died behind this wooden fence in a rancher's metal shipping container.

I will never forget the joy and relief of finding him, nor the intense stress of the search and worry. 


Mr Purr is why I do lost cat search & rescue. 

I am a pet detective for missing cats to save lost cats who might die otherwise AND support the people in panic mode who are also getting an earful of the typicall myths and bad advice.


I will never forget the experience of my own lost cat story.


 And I will never forget you, my beloved soul cat, Mister Purr.


A "How to Find Lost Cat app" is coming. Sign up for news on new lost pet finder apps here:


 Finding a lost cat is way more complicated than recovering a missing dog. Ask any pet detective.


A lost cat app could make a difference in getting lost cats found for people who cannot bear to sit down and read a book about Finding missing cats when they're under stress.


If you know anyone who can help develop an app based on pet detective input and decision trees, please use the form above to contact us or call for more info.
