I have to tell this story. Years ago a friend of mine lost her cat and she put notices in the neighborhood. About 6 weeks later, a neighbor told her she thought she saw her cat a few blocks away at this very old woman's house. My friend went, knocked on the door, and asked this very old woman if she might have her cat "Bear." And the woman replied, "O do you mean, Santa Claus ? " lol !

I am so disgusted by the phrase "lost cat". Your cat is lost because you let it outdoors where it does not belong. This is your fault, your good intentioned idea of owning an indoor/outdoor cat. You can't have it both ways.

cats over here are only indoor cats if you live in a high rise or they choose not to go out but not many cats really get lost if they do its usually because they are hungry and some nice person is feeding them down the road i have found

Very good tips and one has to remember that even indoor cats can slip outside the door in seconds if there is a distraction or some emergency where unexpected things happen or a new babysitter isn't quick enough if they should answer the door.
