Charity Calls For Compulsory Microchipping of Cats

The UK’s largest cat charity, Cats Protection has been marking National Microchipping Month this June by renewing calls for compulsory microchipping of owned cats.

Microchipping is a safe, permanent and cost-effective method of identification which ensures cats can be reunited with their owner should they go missing and that lost cats are not mistaken as strays by rehoming charities.

It also ensures owners can be notified if their cat has been injured or killed in a road accident.  Cats Protection encourages local councils to scan any cats they collect that have died in road accidents for a microchip so their owners can be informed.
