When we recently lost our cat Noah (and being a bit of a geek) I turned to Evernote and Skitch to help find him. With no sight of Noah for over four days, we distributed flyers, put up posters and the calls began rolling in. We started receiving heaps of tips from people who thought they'd seen the cat. Feeling like a detective, I documented our search using Skitch to track the roads we'd covered and areas where he'd been seen.
As you can see, we ended up finding him pretty close to home (typical). Although he may have been spotted wandering further afield, we'll never really know the extent of his adventure. Skitch was extremely handy for keeping track of the areas we'd looked for him and added more structure to our search.
