The Importance of Microchipping Your Cat

Updated: Feb 14


Microchipping will help to get your missing cat reunited with you

Microchipping your cat is one of the most important things you can do to keep them safe. A microchip is a small, electronic device that is inserted under your cat's skin. If your cat ever gets lost, a vet or animal shelter can scan the microchip and find your contact information.

Here are some of the benefits of microchipping your cat:

  • It is the most effective way to identify your cat if they get lost. Microchipped pets are 2.5 times more likely to be reunited with their owners than those who are not microchipped.


  • It is a permanent form of identification. Collars and tags can be lost or removed, but a microchip is permanent.


  • It is a relatively quick and painless procedure. The microchip is inserted under your cat's skin with a needle, and most cats do not even feel it.


  • It is affordable. The cost of microchipping your cat is relatively low, and it is a worthwhile investment in your cat's safety.


If you are considering microchipping your cat, I highly recommend it. It is a simple procedure that can save your cat's life if they ever get lost.

Here are some additional tips for microchipping your cat:

  • Make sure you register your cat's microchip with a national database. This will ensure that your contact information is up-to-date and that animal shelters and veterinarians can find you if your cat is ever lost.


  • Update your cat's microchip information if you move or change your phone number. This will help ensure that your cat can be reunited with you if they ever get lost.


  • Keep your cat's collar and tag on at all times. Even if your cat is microchipped, it is still a good idea to keep their collar and tag on. This will help people identify your cat if they find them.


By following these tips, you can help ensure that your cat is safe and can be reunited with you if they ever get lost.
