Pet Identification

Millions of cats are admitted to shelters annually, with only a fraction—less than 5 percent—being reunited with their families. Losing a pet can be a distressing experience for owners and families. To help mitigate this risk and prepare for the possibility of your cat becoming lost, we have compiled two lists to aid in keeping your cat safe and enhancing the likelihood of a reunion.


  • Keep your cat indoors, especially at night, to reduce the risk of her getting lost or injured.
  • Ensure your cat wears a collar with an ID tag containing your contact information.
  • Microchip your cat to provide a permanent form of identification that cannot be lost or removed.

  • Keep a recent photo of your cat and a copy of her medical records in a safe place.
  • Create a lost pet flyer with your cat's photo, description, and your contact information to distribute in case she goes missing.
  • Contact local animal shelters, veterinary clinics, and animal control agencies to report your lost cat and provide them with the flyer.
