Q. Regarding "Choosing a new vet" article, the Maine Coone in the photo looks like my lost cat Sam. Where was the photo taken, where is the cat now?

Answered By

A. The photo is likely a stock photo of a cat. Contact the local veterinary clinics and shelters. Give them a description of your cat. I hope your cat returns home safe and sound. If your cat is microchipped, confirm your contact information is up to date with the microchip company.
