In January 2015, our cat Hawthorne wandered out through our patio door in the middle of the night, and by the next day, he had not returned.
For the next ten days, we searched and waited for Hawthorne to come back. We would not have found him without LostPetCards.com. Only 48 hours after Hawthorne went missing, we contacted LostPetCards.com, and setting up our postcard and delivery options were a snap. I provided Hawthorne's vitals, our reward information, and a photo online, and within a few hours, we had a postcard design, and a caring mailing rep helping us plan our mailing drop. Two days later, the postcards were in mailboxes - and that same day, a neighbor was able to capture Hawthorne on video. We were relieved and excited to have an approximate location - and we also were excited that more than 10 Lawrence, Kansas residents were calling us from blocks away - either concerned about Hawthorne, or to report a possible sighting. The postcards were working!
The following day - 10 days after Hawthorne wandered away, another neighbor spotted him in his backyard. He called us, and made sure to mention he had the postcard in hand, was looking at the cat, and was 100 percent sure it was him. Using this tip, we were able to track Hawthorne under another porch deck, behind a leaf pile, and staying warm near a dryer vent. A perfect hiding spot - but we waited him out with food and chatter, and soon he was in my wife's arms, ready to go home.
It's truly nerve-racking and horrifying to lose a pet, to wonder what happened, and to spend sleepless nights and frustrating days wandering the neighborhood and searching for your lost friend. In our case, Hawthorne would not have returned home without LostPetCards.com. Their fast service, considerate demeanor, and ability to cover a sizable mailing area for reasonable cost helped mobilize our community, and helped identify Hawthorne. And now he's home!
Thank you, LostPetCards.com!
