Microchipping

Microchipping is the most effective way of identifying a lost pet (chips don't come off or put the cat at risk of injury like collars can). Each microchip has a unique number which is stored on a national database. A scan of the chip reveals the owner's name and address from the database's records. A microchip is slightly smaller than a grain of rice and is inserted under the cat's skin between the shoulder blades. 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.

Remember to change your microchip details if you move house. If you want further information on getting your cat microchipped, please contact us by using the 'Contact Us' page.
