Loss of a cat - a sad event which is capable to spoil mood for a long time. However such situation often can be corrected, having advertized in loss: perhaps, someone saw the lost pet and will be able to return him to owners.
Text of the announcement
The first what it is necessary to take care of, making the announcement of loss of a cat, - to draw attention as it is possible the bigger number of people to increase the probability of hit of this announcement by eyes to that person who really saw the pet. It is possible to make it, having entitled the announcement the short and capacious text capturing a key part of the problem for example "The cat was gone!" or "Help to find a cat!". You should not write with large letters in the heading "Announcement" or "Search" as these general words will hardly attract interest and desire to study the full text of the message of people.
Its main part has to be devoted to special signs of an animal which will help the one who could see it, understand that it is that cat which is looked for. Specify an animal color, color of his eyes, to pancake of wool and the size here. Special signs can become especially useful if those are available: for example, if at a cat the ear is broken off or the tail is stopped. If you kept the photo of a pet, it will also be useful to place it in the announcement, it is better in a color format.
At last, in a final part of the text it is necessary to report how it is possible to contact owners of a cat. In such situation it is more preferable to give the mobile phone which will provide a possibility of an operative communication and, as a result, obtaining relevant information on the location of the pet. If you are ready to give a reward to the person who will help to find an animal, surely specify it in the announcement: perhaps, it will serve for this purpose who saw it, an additional incentive for implementation of a call. Also it will be useful to let know reading the announcement as far as for you it is important to find the pet: you can emphasize it with a phrase like "We very much miss a cat!" or "Call at any time!".
Placement of the announcement
As much as possible to expand a circle of the people who noticed the announcement and to increase the probability to find the pet, it is necessary not only to make competently the text of the message, but also to place it where the cat could be seen with the maximum probability. If before loss your cat often walked one, try to remember or present his usual routes and stick the announcement near them. If the cat was domestic and never went outside, it is worth sticking the announcement in the neighboring yards as the frightened animal could hardly leave far. Besides, it will be useful to place announcements in places of a considerable congestion of people in your area: at the stops, near pharmacies and shops. At last, it is useful to paste them near veterinary clinics as people who care for the pets, will understand your loss and will try to help you. Besides, the text of the announcement can be placed also in local newspapers or in a running line on local TV channel. However take into consideration that in this case its text, most likely, should be reduced therefore focus only on the most important details.
