Why the lost dogs find more often than cats?Pets - dogs and a cat - in most cases become nearly the center of the world for the owners. Obsessed “ dog lovers “ and “ aelurophiles “ can discuss for hours the best forages for the favourites, shampoos, kogterezk, clothes and even jewelry. Care for them, adore them, but there are three most terrible things of which any owner of a cat or dog is afraid: it is death of a being who already became absolutely native, and also his illness or complete disappearance.
With the first none of us can do anything, and here with the second and third desperately fight. And if the animal got sick, then the way is rather simple - the veterinarian who has to use the best efforts is called to help an animal.
In a case with disappearance everything is much more difficult. Also is more disturbing. Because uncertainty is more terrible than to what you stand face to face. The desperate owners find thousands of ways to trace “ poteryashka “ and, fortunately, in many cases their searches are crowned with success. And, as it became clear, the lost dogs come back home much more often, and here the percent of the cats who came back home after slipped out at the slightly opened door or jumped out in a window, much lower.
The American scientists became interested why “ dog lovers “ are often happier “ aelurophiles “ (the number of the dogs returned to owners averages about 70% of total number of missing, cats - is slightly more than 50 have some), and revealed a number of factors which do search of a dog by more productive.
As they found out, having analysed statistics and separate cases of loss of a pet and his detection, success in searches of the escaped doggie partly is predetermined that owners of dogs treat identification of the favourite more responsibly.
Dogs carry collars on which their name and the owner`s coordinates, special nominal medallions or hypodermic chips with full information on an animal is written (such practice is already entered also in our country, and you should not neglect it). “ Aelurophiles “ believing what their four-footed will never get on the street, similar things ignore, moreover, “ dog lovers “ start more vigorously searches of an animal while many “ aelurophiles “ rely on the known ability of the favourites to independently find a way home.
However, the success of searches is influenced also by an objective factor. The thoroughbred dog running without supervision in most cases will draw sooner or later attention someone from passersby, and that or will shelter, the animal, or will hand over it in one of nurseries. The cats walking, as we know, in itself lose chances. They can draw attention only in case of inadequate behavior on which it will become obvious that the animal is in Wednesday, atypical for itself.
A traditional way to which owners " resort; poteryashka “ in America it is same, as well as at us, are the announcements stuck on the area of loss, and also published in newspapers and the Internet. However, in a sense the American owners of dogs and cats are happier than ours; in the USA there is a developed system of shelters for homeless animals to which the majority of the animals who are idly walking down the street gets. Exactly thanks to these shelters much manage to return an animal on a sofa in the native apartment.
We need only to hope for the kind soul of the person who will pick up our animal, and on the fact that he will not be eaten by the stray dogs protecting the territory.
