"Kim! Thanks to your lost cat tips, I found my cat today!  I had been searching for a week until I read up on how to look for a skittish cat. Thank you for your materials. God bless you!"

-Rhonda, Atlanta, GA

"I'm thrilled to report that I found my cat this morning! Thank you so much for for writing your "lost cat tips" book. That was absolutely the  best $25 bucks I ever spent in my life."

-Linda, Anchorage, Alaska 

"Thanks for all your support  throughout this emotional rollercoaster!  Your booklet really was incredibly helpful.  Without your advice, my cat would not be home right now.  This will be the first night in a week that I'll actually sleep!"

-Jamie, Houston, Texas

"Kim! I want you to know I searched for my cat for 2.5 months doing all the typical stuff people on Facebook advise with zero luck. FInally, one person you had worked with recommended your booklet so I ordered it.

-Roni and Odin, Oklahoma

What an eye opener! I had been doing so much wrong. Once I learned your approach and changed up my methods, I found her THAT DAY!  I'm now recommending you to everyone in California!"
-Dana, Santa Cruz, CA

"After 4 nights we found Oscar - totally thanks to your guide! I will be recommending you every chance I get!  We found him in this tiny crevice under our deck stairs…He was pretty dirty but seems fine! EVERYONE told me to put the kitty litter in the yard or “Your lost cat was eaten by coyotes” - NONE of which was helpful!

I loved your guide because it gave real advice for the personality of cat I have, plus it really gave me hope to keep looking using your new ideas. Thank you, Kim. So glad I found your "Lost cat tips!"

-Christine Goodner, Hillsboro, Oregon

"I have to take a few minutes to thank you for the work you do.  I bought your e-book “How to Find a Lost Cat" a few days after my cat Jonah fell out of the upstairs window. Of course I made all the mistakes you advise not to do the first 3 days of his disappearance.  A friend recommended your info, and I thought it was worth trying a better way to search, so I bought the book. I followed many of your lost indoor cat techniques, including the camera. I cannot tell you how comforting it was to see the pictures of him and finally get to use your method to grab him and march him inside!

Without the insights into scared cats and the tips you present in your book, I might still be looking for Jonah. I work with Siamese Cat Rescue, so I will be sure to give them your web site info. Thank you so much for your help in finding my lost Jonah!"


- Carol in CHARLESTON, SC 

Lost cat tips = happy reunions

I'm proud of the hundreds of lost cats found in person AND as a result of my video + ebooklet.


As mentioned in these thank-you notes, my materials go way beyond the typical missing cat tips of "lost cat flyers, Facebook, and checking shelters." 


My techniques and tips are what got these cats found. Again and again, cat owners say they wish they'd found my lost cat tips sooner because once they finally downloaded my materials, they tried my methods and found their lost cat.


I love it when they write to say thank you!

Lost cats found using the Lost Cat Finder book and video "lost cat tips" 

"Kim! Thanks for your brilliant tips booklet! Great source of info. Wow.  I thought I knew all about cats, but this is truly niche specialty. Your info is what got my cat home. Thank you for writing that book."


-Robert, Chicago, IL




"We followed the search steps outlined in the book and we found our missing cat trapped in a neighbor's tool house they said had not been open for a year! She had jumped into a hole over the door, but unable to jump out. Even though the owners said it was never open, we knew from the book to look anyway and he was there!


Thank you for all your work throughout the global kitty community!"


--Linda Bluma, Riga, Latvia

Recommendation from the pioneer in pet detective LOST PET TRACKING AND RECOVERY:

"Kim is a WIZARD at finding lost cats. I know personally of many, many amazing recoveries of lost cats. Although a search dog can be a great tool, it is more critical that you get advice/counsel from someone like Kim who is trained in lost cat behaviors than to simply have someone come out with a search dog. 


I have been in this business (of using search dogs to find lost pets) since 1998, but if my cat were missing, I would hire Kim of Lost Cat Finder in a heartbeat.

Kim Freeman's company is Lost Cat Finder http://www.lostcatfinder.com/. If you have lost a cat, I strongly suggest connecting with her for a consult.
