June is National Microchipping Month
National Microchipping Month is a campaign that encourages and promotes reponsible pet ownership through microchipping as the preferred method of permanent identification. 

Microchipping offers cats a safe and permanent method of identification and increases the chances of a lost feline being safely reunited with his owner. Microchips 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 you should change your microchip details if you move house. You can do this by contacting your microchip database – find the phone number on your microchip paperwork.
