You probably won't need all this gear to find your lost cat. I recommend starting with my book as your guide, or ask me which tools and items are best for your particular situation.
AVAILABLE FOR RENT
Equipment rental is available in the greater Atlanta area. All batteries and accessories are included with my lost cat equipment rentals.
RESEARCHED & TESTED
Pet detectives keep an arsenal of special equipment to find lost pets. I'm sharing what I have tried, tested and trust so you know the best of each category after using many brands & models over the years.
The gear I use most are my see-into-every-crevice 1,000-lumen spotlight, a set of wireless motion alerts, movement-activated night vision trail cameras, Tomahawk humane cat traps, packs of orange foam sheets to turn missing cat flyers intoattention-grabbing "lost cat posters," and the Bionic Ear amplified listening device (to hear meows in those inaccessible garages, sheds and crawlspaces).
The more expensive high-tech items that are not essential but definitely nice to have are: a night vision monocular and infrared thermal detection unit.
You can rent most of these items directly from me, or have them delivered using the Amazon links.
