At last... we cats are getting the same techie help as dogs. A microchip for all of us.
The law is changing in the UK and after June next year all pet cats must be microchipped by law. Why? So that if they get lost they can be more easily reunited with their humans.
Of course, I am microchipped. So is Jimmy, whose photo I used at the top of this blog. All responsible humans give us cats a microchip.
But there are still unthinking or old fashioned humans who don't bother to do this. And there are some humans that save a little bit of money by not doing it.
What will happen? Well, the unthinking humans may now be reminded by a vet to do this.
The truly unsatisfactory humans, the ones that don't bother to neuter us, still will not bother. But at least they will be liable for a fine.
It will make life easier for rescue shelters. A quick check for the chip... Easy. Cats with responsible human pets go home.
Cats without responsible owners can be adopt better human that make better pets.
