Today, we’re getting super personal and taking it all the way back to the day I adopted Dottie.
I brought her home in a carrier and set it on the ground for Oscar to be able to meet Dottie safely. Well, they took such an immediate liking to each other I opened the carrier door, watching closely to ensure the meeting remained friendly and safe. Not knowing how skittish Dottie is, she ran out of the carrier past me and seemed to just disappear. I had a full on melt down thinking that I had lost her minutes into having adopted her. After a couple hours of frantically searching, I found her with the help of Oscar. Dottie had hidden under my recliner, but climbed up on the wooden beam situated under the chair. She was safe and sound.
Prior to finding her, all the scenarios ran through my head. Maybe she was in the garage (the door to the garage was closed, but I was panicked...). What if she was lost? How would she be found? She was a tiny 3 month old kitten and the first kitten I ever “owned”. She is microchipped, but how do you guarantee someone will scan for it?!
Fast forward to this year, we discovered @petid

. Due to her skittish nature, Dottie wears her collar to vet visits and wore it for the first few months of us living here. The collar ensures people will know she is lost. She has a tag for her name with my info and a tag for her microchip. Her petid tag is a nice bonus! It can be scanned by just using your cellphone! The finder would scan the QR code using the (FREE!) petid app and BAM! Information on how to get in contact with me pops up to ensure a safe return.
Dottie is trained to stay away from open doors and avoid doors when people are near them. (It also helps she was raised an indoor only cat.) But, one of my biggest fears remains... her getting scared and rushing out a door. Dottie’s petid tag adds that additional cushion for a peace of mind. I pray it’ll never have to be used, but you can never be too careful. -Olivia (aka Ma)
