video search guide & ebooklet

Get your lost cat found using new scientific methods.

Hundreds of lost cats have been found thanks to this instant "How to Find a Lost Cat" kit.


You can see from the notes below, these lost cat tips go way beyond the "typical six" everyone suggests: check the shelters, notify vets, put up lost cat posters, shake treats, litter box outside and post on social media.

Every day, another cat owner tells me none of those worked and how they wish they'd found my Tips Guides sooner. 


Once they learn the new methods right for their situation and find their cat, they send happy reunion photos and thank-you notes like these...

Happy Reunions & thank you notes.

"I finally found my missing cat this morning after weeks of tears and wasted effort. After nearly a month I followed your guide and thrilled to report have my cat back home! Kim thank you for creating your "lost cat tips." Best $30 bucks I've ever spent in my life!"

~ Linda,

   Anchorage, Alaska ​​

​​" I searched for my cat for over two months. Yes I tried all the usual stuff advised on Facebook with zero luck. 

Finally, a neighbor on next-door recommended your booklet, so I ordered it. I will be sending our reunion story for your testimonials.

You will be floored! For now, here's a photo of our happy reunion!"

~ Roni & Odin, Oklahoma

"Kim! You are truly an animal angel! I'm beyond grateful to have Oliver back home. What a happy ending to a VERY stressful 16 days.

Forever in gratitude that you are in this world to help confused, sad, super-distraught pet parents like me."

"Someone in our Austin lost pets group told me about your Lost cat tips. I wish I'd known this stuff sooner!"

​I will be recommending your lost cat finder kit every chance I get. Before I got it EVERYONE told me to put out the kitty litter. Even the girl at the shelter. I even had a neighbor say “your lost cat was probably eaten by coyotes." Thank you for warning me this would happen. I ignored the mean comments and followed your steps!

Finn is home and I'm so grateful for your guidance!"

~ Alyana & Finn, Austin TX

Thank you for writing such a helpful booklet! What an eye-opener. I had been doing so much wrong. Once I got your stuff and changed up my strategy, I found her THAT DAY! 

 I'm now recommending you to everyone posting lost cats in California!"

-Dana, Santa Cruz, CA

"Kim! Thanks to your lost cat tips, I found my cat today!  I had searched for a week and literally thought I had done everything until I read your materials --especially that section on how to find a skittish indoor cat. Thank you for your search guides. God bless you!"

-Rhonda, Montgomery, AL

Recommendation from the pioneer in pet detective
Lost Pet Tracking and K9 Search & Rescue

"Kim is a WIZARD at finding lost cats!"


I  personally know many of Kim's amazing recoveries of lost cats.

Although a search dog can be a great tool, it is more critical that you get advice/counsel from someone like Kim who is trained in lost cat probabilities and behavior than to rush to get a pet detective with a search dog. 


I have been in this business (of using search dogs to find lost pets) since 1998, but if my cat were missing, I would hire Kim in a heartbeat. Her  company is Lost Cat Finder. If you have lost a cat, I strongly suggest getting her help.
