TIPS FOR EFFECTIVELY HELPING LOST OR FOUND CATS:
- LOST CATS
It is essential to the health and safety of your cat, that they be kept indoors only. However, should your cat go missing, EVERY moment counts! Do NOT wait and hope your cat returns before taking action! Please follow these steps:
- Search the perimeter of your home, under bushes and structures. A scared cat will want to hide.Alert your neighbors
- IMMEDIATELY, that same day....Call your local Animal Control Officer
- Call your local shelter, Paws of Plainville (508-695-4707). The shelter has experienced staff that can help you safely trap your cat. Or someone may have turned in your cat.
- Post your cat's photo, the location from which it went missing and your contact information on Facebook (if possible), or other social media forums
- Create posters and post them around your neighborhood and adjacent areas
- Finally, don't give up too soon.
- Take pictures and note when you first saw the cat
- As quickly as possible, ask your neighbors if it belongs to them
- IMMEDIATELY, call your local Animal Control Officer
- Please do NOT touch an animal you do not know; but try to safely assess the cat from a safe distance. When you do contact officials, you'll be able to give them a quick bit of info: Is it friendly? Does it seem sick? Is it wounded? Does it have kittens with it? This will give officials a sense of the urgency at hand
- Feed the animal, if possible, to keep it around until it can be tended to by officials.
Washer & Dryer Donation
A short while ago, the washer and dryer at Paws of Plainville, Inc. started to protest from all of the towels and bedding they so diligently laundered for the kitties in need. The washer drum would bang and the dryer would squeak. All of us volunteers were in a quandary: what would we do?! The flea ridden kittens needed warm clean towels after their baths. The emaciated cats needed thick clean beds in which to warm up . The sick and frightened felines needed clean linens to cover their cages and give them comfort and safety.
Belcher’s Appliance Center came to the rescue! They wasted no time donating a GE Washer and a Speed Queen commercial dryer! Tim Petit of Tri-State Appliance Installation was just a quick to deliver the new appliances and to install them! Now our kitties are purring away in laundry bliss: clean and warm linens abound. Tyler, one of our older kitties in need of a home and shown in this picture, certainly loves the new machines and perching on top of them.
We are so grateful to Belcher’s Appliance Center located at 120 Fountain Street in Framingham, MA – tel: 508-626-2321 and Tim Petit, owner of Tri-State Appliance Installation, 1050 Great Road, Albion, RI – tel: 401-475-5241. We hope that if anyone has a chance to thank them in person, please do!
