Note from Girl Human:
Our Mr.Z has been missing now for 3 weeks. One of the best things I have discovered in my Quest for Mr.Z. The purchase of signs. The ones you see stuck in the ground all over with those little metal stakes. They advertize businesses/specials/sales. These corrugated plastic all weather signs are start at around $9.00 with stands. The more you buy the lower the price. I purchased 15-18x24 full color signs. I placed them all around the area. I'm going to move them weekly. I have had more phone calls and people asking more info on the missing Mr.Z. I have received e-mails and calls (14 so far) and have looked at a lot of Black and White cats ever since. Having a few of these signs made in advance to post the day kitty goes missing would be a wonderful idea as an ounce of prevention and a good back up to chipping. One thing I did was place 2 signs in my vets yard.
Another very good contact has been Petfinders. This is a very good, under publicized site. This should be given a lot more attention and advertizing so that the NON PET people are aware where to go to look/post for lost/found pets.
Every Vets should post a flyer or give out flyers to every customer to promote this site more.
I started a Facebook page on Annie Spokescat called, Lost Cat in Stuarts Draft Virginia Mr.Z. I refer people to it so they can see more photos and a video of or guy. I also place a Paypal fundrazr to help with the cost and reward. I have gotten a little response on that. Every little bit helps. The Reward keeps growing thanks to some really fine people. We have not had good news but we will keep trying and using new idea.

Thanks for the info, we hope we never have to use it though. We are still purring up a storm for Mr Z
We're purring and purring that Mr. Z comes home soon, and that in the meantime he is safe and being fed by someone. Don't lose hope!
I'ld have never thought of those littlew signs. Good luck, we're purring big time Mr. Z comes home soon...
We appreciate you sharing all this information with us.
You are helping others that may find themselves in the same situation at some point.
We continue to purr that one day soon you find Mr. Z or that he just wanders into your yard again. We purr that he is safe, warm, and being loved by someone who only thought they were doing something nice for a "stray".
Please don't give up hope.
K, Mr. Z, just lettin' you know that we are NOT doin' a contest to see who can stay gone da longest. Best get your kitty tail home or Santy isn't gonna bring you no fishies for Christmas.
Every time I come to your page I hope that there is a "He's come home" banner, but I don't believe that there is no hope either. There have been so many cats on Catster that have been missing far longer and have come home safe and sound. I am at a loss for words dear Sieben and Annie as I want to give encouragement, but not sure which direction to take. Just know that you are never far from our prayers and heart.
P/S Just stay positive for his return
