Please sign our microchip petition
23 September 2019
Our feline friends can’t tell us where they live, so they need to be microchipped to make sure they can always be reunited with their owner.
We believe microchipping of owned cats should be compulsory, just as it is for dogs.
Cats Protection has launched a petition to make microchipping compulsory for owned cats across the UK to help reunite missing cats with their owners.
We need to collect as many signatures as possible to show the public support for the compulsory microchipping of owned cats, so please share the petition with everyone you know!
8 out of 10 stray cats that Cats Protection’s UK adoption centres take in are sadly not microchipped. Cats roam and may become lost but a microchip gives a lost cat the best chance of being safely reunited with its owner.
Microchips also provide closure to owners whose cats have been victims of road traffic accidents.
Compulsory microchipping of dogs is already in force across the UK. Please help us to ensure cats are treated fairly and have the same chance as dogs of being reunited with their owners if they go missing.
