Lost pets on

A fellow volunteer at the Animal Shelter sent out an email saying her cat is lost. She sent a link to her posting on's lost and found cat page. I decided to take a look, even though she lives in Kansas and I live in Missouri. We live close to the border.

When I went to the site, there were probably 100 cats listed just in this area. I just cringe when I hear that a cat or dog is missing. I had a terrible time about 5 years ago when my cat, Gaby, was missing. She was actually stolen, but I didn't know that then. For more on that, click here to be directed to my website to read Gaby's story.

I have seen a lot of cats, kittens and even a puppy dead on the side of the road. I have probably seen 10 or so in the last month. Please keep your pets indoors! I know that occasionally, a pet will run out of the door or somehow escape your sights. As a general rule, it is essential to always be able to see your pet. Don't tie them up outside unattended. (I see this all the time!)
Don't let them out in the backyard, even with a fence. Sit outside with them and enjoy the air.

My cats are never, ever outside without me. I cannot risk it. Gaby was nearly killed and I won't let that happen again.
