Escaped indoor cat Recovered in Chicago
Randy had been searching for his beloved companion cat Ray for a while before he contactedme at lost Cat Finder. Once he read my online booklet "How to Find a Lost Cat" he called me to request a custom consultation and ongoing support.
We got poor Ray found in the middle of a cold Chicago snowstorm at night. He had frostbite on one ear, but is otherise okay now.
Here's their story...
"Ray had been missing for 2 weeks. We had searched high and low with no sign of him whatsoever.
The Chicago weather was horrible 11 degrees with a low of -6 some nights. I was at my wit's end trying to find him and, like many cat owners, wasted a lot of time with unproductive efforts. Thankfully, I found Pet Detective Kim Freeman, specializing in lost cats.
Not only did Kim call me back promptly, her web site also had a book and video chocked full of excellent expert advice with invaluable how to info. I learned what I was doing wrong, but, more importantly, what I needed to do right. She showed me how to think like a cat and made me aware of the hiding phase.
When you're frantic and feeling helpless, this is EXACTLY what you need: here is what I CAN do, and the most effective way to do it. And how to prioritize what to do. I learned the best ways to make and distribute flyers and posters. I learned where he was most likely to be, allowing me to concentrate my efforts. I learned what equipment to get and where to put it. The value of this is cannot be overstated.
But Kim went way beyond that. Her commitment to her clients is amazing. After getting her specific profile of Ray I peppered her with so many questions every step of the way, trying to make sure I left no stone unturned. She always patiently and promptly answered every one, no matter how many other clients she was helping. And that is so important when you are receiving help, especially at long distance (I am near Chicago, far from her Texas location).
The support and advice she gave me about how Ray could survive in terrible winter weather, how not giving up too soon is so important, how to understand my cat's specific personality and what he might do, how to prepare for his "breaking cover" and possibly trying to return to the house, all of this spurred me on when otherwise, all hope would have been gone. I feared whether I would ever see Ray again, but she kept me going and focused. Pretty incredible from over 1,000 miles away!!
Bottom line, she was right and it worked! I followed her expert and thorough advice and now Ray is home!! No one could be more helpful and compassionate than Kim. The reason why I got my Ray back after 2 weeks in the dead of winter is Kim, the Lost Cat Finder. Without her help, I have no doubt I would never have seen my cat again.
WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE!
