You may think that you will never lose your cat…you may think that it will always return to you safely… please think again.
By nature, cats are born wanderers and the Cats Protection charity alone rehomes 75,000 cats each year. Many of these are strays with no identification; either the cat has lost its collar or did not have one in the first place.
Often it is an impossible task to trace the owner. Tens of thousands of owners each year wait in vain for the return of their lost cat. Make sure your cat is permanently identified, by asking the vet about microchip implants.
The chip is placed by a simple injection. Each chip has a unique number which, when your cat is scanned, will be revealed. A quick telephone call to the centralised computer, available 24 hours a day, will result in you being contacted and told of the whereabouts of your cat. Your pet will be returned to your safe care very quickly.
All vets and cat rescue societies, for example, the Cats Protection and the RSPCA, have microchip scanners and all road traffic accident victims and strays are routinely checked for chips. Help us to keep you and your cat together, ask about microchipping today.
