How Tabby Tracker Works
Your cat is lost
You can search the Found Cats listings for your cat based on his characteristics (Breed, Color, etc) as well as in your Postal Code area. If you find your cat in the listings you can use the form on his listing to send a message to the person who found your cat. If you do not find your cat in the listings you can register your lost cat so that he shows up in the Lost Cats listings so that you may be contacted.
You found a cat
You can search the Lost Cats listings for the cat you found based on his characteristics (Breed, Color, etc.) as well as the Postal Code he was found in. If you find the cat in the listings you can use the form on his listing to send a message to the cat's owner. If you do not find the cat in the listings you can register the cat so that he shows up in the Found Cat listings, and so that you can receive email updates when similar lost cats are added to the website.
You have a safe cat
You can pre-register your safe cat to aid in his return should he ever get lost. In a time of panic you may not think to register your cat as lost right away on Tabby Tracker, or you simply may not realize that your cat has gotten out of your yard while you were at work. Registering your safe cats has two benefits. First of all, you can then order a Tabby Tracker cat tag that will link to the website and give a person another method of contacting you if they find your cat. And secondly your cat's "safe" listing will appear at the bottom of the matches shown to finders when they register a found cat in your area. Your listing will be marked as "presumably safe" so that finders only contact you if they have a hunch that they found the cat that you thought was safe - or simply hadn't marked as "lost."
Tabby Tracker allows owners of lost cats to post the value of their reward for the return of their cat on their lost cat listing. Tabby Tracker does not guarantee this reward and does not facilitate the payment of the reward.
