Why is Cat Microchipping Important?
Microchipping is one of the most important things you can do for your cat. It is estimated that around 2 million cats in the UK are still not microchipped, making it hard to connect them with their owners should they ever go missing or get stolen. There is a small risk of cats being stolen by criminals who sell them – but by microchipping, this risk is reduced as your details are imprinted into your cat’s chip.
Cats are territorial creatures, and while they might not venture too far from your home, they will have a set parameter around their base that they will travel to, outside the walls of your house or garden. Outdoor cat owners all share the panic felt when your cat doesn’t come home for a long time. With microchipping, you can have peace of mind that you’re connected to your cat all the time.
Stay Connected to your Cat With Cat Microchipping
Every microchip has a unique number that can be read by a portable scanning device. The unique code is individually registered under your animal and contains your contact details and identification details.
The portable scanning device is a common piece of equipment held by local authority centres, most veterinary practices, hospitals, and rescue homes. This means it’s easy for your contact details to be found, as they’ll be entered onto the microchipping database, electronically connecting you with your animal.
Once this has been scanned and your details are discovered, you’d get a phone call to reunite you with your pet.
