"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 dirty but seems fine! EVERYONE told me to put the kitty litter in the yard and some even said “Your lost cat was eaten by coyotes” - NONE of which was helpful. Thank you for guiding us when no one else cared!
-Christine Goodley, Montgomery AL
"I have to take a few minutes to thank you for the work you do. We bought your e-book “How to Find a Lost Cat" a few days after our cat Jonah fell out of the window upstairs. Of course, I made all the mistakes you advise not to do the first 3 days of his disappearance. One I had your info, I followed your lost indoor cat techniques, including setting up that camera you recommend. Kim, I cannot tell you what a relief it was to finally catch a picture of him, then get to use your sneaky cat grab trick to get him inside! THANK YOU!
- Carol Crawley in CHARLESTON, SC
Elderly "Office Max" cat lost then found, saved from the edge of starvation.
"Our cat Office Max was found in a sawmill, barely moving, eyes sunken. The vet said Max was just hours away from death. He nearly lost his life.
Now he is home from ICU and doing well. Kim's info was so helpful, not only when he was lost but also tips to help him recover once he was found. Invaluable insight, information and compassion."

"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
""Kim your new methods work even here in Latvia! We followed the steps outlined in your booklet and found our missing cat trapped in a neighbor's tool house which they have told us was not being open in a year! He had jumped down from a hole over the door. Then she could not make it to jump out. Even when owners said it was never open, we knew from your advice to check it and he was there!
Thank you for finding cats across a 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 of her 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 search & rescue than to simply get someone 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'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.
