How to make found cat poster

A cat showed up yesterday morning who is lost, or worst case scenario abandoned. She seems absolutely determined that she lives here which is really strange, she agressively tries to get it by clawing and ramming into the windows. I've never seen her before yesterday though. I want to make a found cat poster but don't know how to go about it so that I don't attract the type of people who look for lost cats and sell them to laboratories and whatnot. She is black with gold eyes. She looks just like a siamese cat, and meows like one, but is all black. Other than that she doesn't really have any distinguishing features. How can I set it up to ensure she doesn't end up in the wrong hands?

I just put CHAT TROUVÉ in huge letters (plus my phone number). If someone is looking for their cat, they'll call. Post everywhere you can, even ten feet apart, because many get ripped down by city workers and misanthropes.

Okay i will try that thanks. How far away from here should I be posting them? Is a block enough?

Let's see if I can get this right lol
I'd post for at least two blocks in each direction. Don't assume cats avoid crossing busy streets or even highways. Not always!
Post in places where people gather - laundromats, corner stores, grocery stores.

Well turns out she came from just a few doors down. I came home tonight and saw her sitting out in the street and though, hmmm, maybe she lives in one of these homes? The second door I knocked on was her home. The guy was looking after her for his neice and she escaped. She's an indoor cat so I guess didn't know how to get back home again. He hadn't seen her in two days. Anyways I was expecting an unhappy ending with this one and am very happy it turned out good :)
