Georgia our cat was lost for 33 days in Nepean after getting out of my in-laws' house where she was staying while we were on holiday. It was persistent postering that got her back. I decided to try to make it impossible for anyone who entered Parkwood Hills not to know that she was missing. I wanted everyone to think, "Hey, is that Georgia?" every time they saw a small grey cat. I made about 40 large neon posters following the instructions at missingpetpartnership.com and updated them after three weeks to say that she was still missing. It got so that every time I was out looking for her, people would ask if I was looking for Georgia. We were so impressed at the kindness of strangers, all concerned for our little cat. I was so sad while I was doing this and wondered if I would ever see her again. The call came last Friday night from a woman who had lured her into her house (less than 500 m away from where she went missing) with food. The resident cat was outraged, poor thing. My husband went to pick her up and had her scanned at the Humane Society to confirm. I just wanted all those sad pet-owners to know that success is possible and persistence is the key. Our three children are ecstatic and so are we.
