SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GetMyCat launches comprehensive lost cat resource site and helps 2200 people in just over 6 months. GMC Web site is the only resource online that provides the comprehensive lost cat resources of expert knowledge, pet amber alerts, lost cat cards, lost flyer/poster printing, lost cat insurance and immediate customer service.
One of the founders Jacques Habra explains, "When I lost my cat last year, I found some great information online, but no resource that had everything I would need in one place and GetMyCat was born from this problem." Habra's cat Majnoon went missing for 3 weeks and was recovered using GetMyCat techniques.
Noospheric typically invests in more 'high-tech' oriented concepts such as mobile applications, Web site service businesses, and even electronics. This project has been a labor of love for the founders.
"As a cat lover, I was thrilled to join GetMyCat and help reunite families," said Max Tracy, Executive Director of GetMyCat. The Web site provides a unique questionnaire to help find lost cats by gathering key information about the missing cat so that the GetMyCat team may offer the best advice and services. "Every situation is different," explains Tracy, "in some cases, you have an indoor cat missing for 1 or 2 days, or an outdoor cat in a rural area missing for over a week. We provide a custom search plan for each type of situation." The questionnaire is one of the many proprietary and unique features available to GetMyCat visitors.
GetMyCat receives dozens of inquiries daily. The Web site experiences over 10,000 visitors monthly and this figure is growing. "We want to provide the most comprehensive and accurate information for recovering lost cats," Habra says. "That's why we are constantly re-investing into more service offerings like our lost cat flyer and lost cat poster production and delivery services," Habra continues. Max Tracy says of the additional services, "People are frantic when they lose their cat and our job is to provide straightforward, easy to understand instructions and services that work."
GetMyCat recently announced a unique "Lost Cat Insurance" service. For people concerned about the costs of services like pet amber alerts or lost cat cards, the lost cat insurance is the answer. For only pennies a day, an owner can have their cat covered. In the event of loss, GetMyCat offers up to $450.00 in services on a priority basis. "We expect this service to do very well with owners wanting to protect their cat without spending a lot of money," Tracy explains.
Noospheric, the parent company of GetMyCat, also plans on expanding into protecting dogs and birds with "GetMyDog" and "GetMyBird". As the founders explain, "Our business is to get your lost pet home."
