June is National Microchipping month!

Microchipping is an essential part of looking after your cat, and throughout the whole of June 2017 many vet practices across the UK will be offering discounted microchips, helping both you and your cat to celebrate National Microchipping Month.

Microchipping offers cats a safe and permanent method of identification and increases the chances of a lost feline being safely reunited with their owner. Once your cat is chipped, the number is linked to a database containing details of the pet, as well as the owner’s contact details, so that if your cat was to go missing and be found, then they can be quickly scanned, identified and reunited with you.

The procedure is very simple and is no more painful than an injection. A cat will not be aware of the microchip's presence once inserted.

Microchips last the lifetime of your cat and they cannot be removed easily, so all you need to do is to ensure that your contact details are kept up to date and then you will be reunited with your cat, even if he/she is found hundreds of miles away - and sometimes even abroad!
