Finding Work: The Value of an Employment Agency

Owing to a rough economy, my employer had to cut back, and I was one of the employees that had to go. With no immediate prospects, but plenty of bills to manage, I decided to sign up with an employment agency. That decision turned out to be the best thing I could've done. The agency found an assignment for me in a matter of days. When it was completed, they had another one waiting. That second assignment led to an offer of permanent employment. If you are out of work, let me tell you about the perks of working with an employment agency. By the time I'm done, you'll be on the way out the door to sign up and get back into the work force.

Here Kitty, Kitty: Tips To Follow When Trying To Find Your Lost Cat

A lost pet is devastating, and it may be very challenging to know what to do to help your pet find its way home. Cats are particularly at risk because many are outdoor pets, which have freedom to roam during the day. This can cause them to become distracted or disoriented, which causes them to lose their way. When your cat is missing, there are a few things that you can do to increase kitty's odds of finding their way back to their family:

Check any out-buildings.

The best place to start looking for a lost cat is in any garages, sheds, utility barns, or abandoned buildings near your home. This may involve knocking on doors and asking for permission. If your pet is a wanderer, consider investing in live animal cam to set-up around the perimeter of your property.

Report the pet lost.

Contact the authorities, including the police, animal control, and humane society, to alert them that your pet has become lost. Check the listings, social media pages, and websites of these community groups to find lost and found pet pictures and sightings.

Create a flyer.

Find a good photo of your pet and plan to use it to make a flyer that you can hang around the neighborhood, give to citizens, and provide to authorities. It may be cheaper in the long-run to use a copy shop or print store for color copies than it will be to make them on your home printer.

Take to social media.

Social media pages are an excellent way to get information about your lost pet out to the community at large. Join groups that offer community postings about yard sales, merchandise, and lost pets, and share often.

Pay a visit to animal control.

It doesn't hurt to pay a visit to animal control and your city shelter with a flyer and to review photos of recently found cats. This may help leave an impression on the intake workers, who could contact you when pets resembling yours come in.

Contact your vet.

Even if your cat is not micro-chipped, it doesn't hurt to visit your vet's office, and any other veterinary offices in the area, with a picture in case your cat is brought in. You may also need to provide vaccination records to animal control if your pet does turn up to prove that those handling the cat were not exposed to rabies.

Stay positive, imagine kitty home, and try to not lose hope when dealing with a missing pet. Pets have been known to wander and return home after weeks, months, or sometimes years. Take precaution and have your pet microchipped and keep tags on them to aid others in helping lost cats find their way back home.
