"Amber Alert" for pets

Post by wendy » Thu December 2nd, 2010, 3:00 pm

Last night I discovered a great resource for finding missing pets anywhere in the US. Visit http://www.findtoto.com - choose one of their packages - within minutes they call all your neighbors and issue an alert.

My missing cat was found within three hours of signing up! He is injured - but expected to make a full recovery.

Thanks for posting this and very glad you've found your kitty. Microchips are always a wise thing, even for indoor kitties like mine. Things do happen.

Thanks SO much for your post! I need to immdiately let a close friend in San Diego know about this. Her fat black cat, Mars, has been missing since Halloween. Not a good time for a black cat to go missing! Hope on, hope ever!!

Might we find out what package you chose? Thankfully Jasper is a indoor pup pup and only goes outside with family. How was your kitty injured?

Saw a picture of your kitty, he's lovely.

I read a sweet story a few weeks ago on LOLCats about a woman who had lost her puppy and found him on a porch of a store, the puppy was being kept warm by the store's cat, as it had been very cold out.

Thanks - he is a cute guy! He stood on a 4" spike that went through his back left paw-pad, right up into his leg, and formed an abcess. He's on pain meds and antibiotics but should be OK in a week or so.
I chose Package B - we live on a lake so I wanted to reach anyone on the water within a mile radius as quickly as possible. I knew he was trapped somewhere because he always comes to his name (he thinks he's a dog!)

Fingers crossed. I hope your friend gets the same good results as I did.

Glad you got your cat back, Wendy - hope he makes a good recovery, sounds very nasty.
