The Top 10 Reasons Why Cats Go Missing

Research shows that around 1 in 3 pets go missing.  Many of those are family cats, who are less likely to be found and returned home than their canine companions.  Here are the top 10 reasons why cats go missing:

1. They are simply exploring
2. They are locked in somewhere
3. They have moved home and have tried to navigate back to their old territory
4. They are not desexed and have gone looking for a mate
5. They have had a fright and are hiding or cannot find their way home
6. They have been chased and cannot find their way home
7. They are an indoor-only cat who has escaped and become lost
8. They have become sick or injured
9. They have accidentally hopped inside a vehicle
10. They have been stolen

While many cats do go missing, there are many things you can do to help protect them from becoming a statistic.  You can download a detailed guide to keeping your cat safe from the front page of our website:
