How I got into lost pet search and rescue
People often ask how I got into my work as a lost cat pet detective.
I show them this photo from 2008 when I lived on a horse farm in Texas: my little cabin on the lake with my red horse and orange cat, Mr Purr.
When Purr went missing for several days, I learned firsthand how it feels when your cat is lost. No one helped or even took me seriously in my panic.
Had I listened to their advice (such as, He'll come back when he's ready," or the old, "Put his litter box outside!") Mister Purr would have died behind this fence in a rancher's metal shipping container.
Mr Purr is why I do lost cat search & rescue.
Both to save other cats, and support the people in panic mode who're getting the usual myths and bad advice.
I will never forget the experience. And I will never forget you, my beloved soul cat, Mister Purr.
