Support Compulsory Microchipping for Cats!
20 January 2021
Thanks to the thousands of cat lovers, like yourself, who have written to their MPs and signed our petition, the government is now asking the public for its views on how to introduce compulsory microchipping of pet cats.
Across the UK there are 10.2 million owned cats, yet a staggering 2.6 million remain unchipped. This means that if they are lost or stolen, it is very difficult to reunite them with their owner.
Microchipping is the safe and permanent way to identify a cat and the best way of ensuring lost cats are returned to their loving families.
Cats Protection takes in thousands of stray cats each year that aren’t microchipped and end up being rehomed – we would much rather reunite them with their owners.
Act now. Enter your details to tell the government to make sure every pet cat is microchipped
