Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.-- James A. Froude (1818-1894)

How to find a lost dog (or cat) ?

The dog owner(s) should take an article of clothing that has been worn at least all day, the longer the better, so the lost dog can pick up the scent.

Bring the article of clothing to the location where the dog was last seen and leave it there. Also, if the dog has a crate & familiar toy, you can bring those too (unless location undesirable for crate). You might also want to leave a note requesting item(s) not to be moved.

Leave a bowl of water there too, as the dog probably hasn’t had access to any. Do not bring food as this could attract other animals that the dog might avoid.

Come back the next day, or check intermittently if possible. Hopefully the dog will be waiting there.

When i was moving house, the cage where my cat was in broke and he managed to run away. We tried catching him... (yeah, fat chance to catch a spooked, scared cat). The lorry driver running in one direction, his attendant cording off the other side .. and still kitty got away! 

Reduced to tears (it was a difficult & stressful move), i had no choice but to leave the place and follow the lorry to my new place across town.  But before i left, i gave my neighbour the keys to my empty apartment and left some cat food & water inside.

Hours later, she heard kitty whining at my apartment door, so she opened the door and let him in and then locked it. So early next day, we rushed over to collect him!

Kitty used to go out of the apartment..but always returns when he's hungry...

Kitty in a new place
Cats, unlike dogs can't be kept in the compound. They will wander off. So, if u r in a new place, he may get lost. So mom always keeps Kitty in a big cage for a few days, so that Kitty can observe the surroundings. 

He didnt like it and so made some noise and this attracted a neighbour's cat. He came over and sat near the cage for a long time...and we imagined him giving Kitty the 'rules' to the neighbourhood,..as male cats are territorial ;)

After a few days, we let him out but always leave his cage & favourite food nearby. So now he's more used to the place, he'd go in and out at whim.
