The vital way of keeping your cat safe and identifiable
Microchipping is the most effective way to identify a lost pet and, by keeping your details up to date, you'll increase the likelihood of a happy reunion if your cat goes wandering. You can get your cat microchipped by a vet, local authority or by a trained and insured member of an animal welfare organisation.
There is no minimum age to microchip your cat and the procedure is simple and doesn't cause harm to your pet. Once the chip is inserted, your cat won't even be aware of its presence.
Keeping your contact details up to date is vital, so keep your microchipping company in the loop if you move house or change your telephone number.
If you do lose your cat, double-check with the database to ensure all your details are correct. If your cat is found and scanned for a microchip, you'll be notified. You can find more advice here on what to do if your cat goes missing.
