No, it is not a cat that you buy at Target and that red cross is NOT a bullseye that you shoot at. (If you could even entertain shooting a cat, YOU CAN LEAVE my Substack now!) A “target cat” is a cat that is used to train “cat detection” dogs, which are dogs used exclusively to search for lost cats. We select dogs that absolutely love cats for this work! They are trained, using methods that are similar to how all other detection dogs (i.e. drug detection, bomb detection, human remains detection, etc.) are trained.
Cheeto! Love him, love this program.
“Scent-cerely” 🤣 Glad you’re here. :)
Informative post! Really enjoyed....
