What is Microchipping?

A microchip is a small device about the size of a grain of rice. The microchip is inserted under your cat’s skin, between their shoulder blades, via a quick injection.

Once inserted, a cat cannot feel the microchip and the special capsule around it means that it does not break down and is designed to last your pet’s lifetime.

The microchip is coded with a unique number that can be read by a scanner. Microchips do not store personal data – this is kept against the unique identification number on a secure database. If your cat is found and scanned, the microchip database is accessed online and the organisation that has your cat, for example the veterinary surgery, a rescue centre or the police, can use the number to find your details. You can then be contacted and your pet safely reunited with you.

Why microchip your cat?

One of the things that many cat owners love about their pets is their inquisitive nature. It is also one of the main reasons that cats end up lost, as they investigate the world around them.

Sadly, pet theft is also a problem, particularly with rare or expensive breeds. Sometimes life events like moving house can cause cats to become confused enough that they get lost, and struggle to find their way home.
