Microchipping

How important is Microchipping?

"Very" is the answer.

We have so many calls from members of the public saying that they have a stray cat in their garden. Some of course are and have been abandoned, others not, and have a home they belong to.

Cats are clever animals and are creatures of habit they can regularly visit a garden, get fed and make this part of their daily routine visiting homes for morsels. However they may start to upset the resident cat in the household and then not be welcome.

They are then taken to centres and vets because they are causing problems. Some of these cats can have owners that maybe are out at work and are unaware of their cats habits. Microchipping helps identify if a cat is owned.

A microchip is slightly bigger than a grain of rice and sits between the shoulder blades. To insert a microchip is a quick and simple procedure and the chip is placed forever under the skin. This simple proceure can re unite you with your beloved pet.

If a cat were to stray and end up at a vets or rescue centre like Bluebell Ridge they would be scanned with a microchip scanner and their unique number will be linked with the pet details. If they are not microchipped we have no way of identifying their owner and that is why rescue centres are so full of cats.

For as little as 10 we can microchip your cat. Just think of the heartache it would save you and your family if your cat were to be lost.

THIS IS A REALLY CHEAP PRICE TO PAY ...... PLEASE ENQUIRE AT THE CENTRE FOR MORE DETAILS.

Tortie Female, 11 years old approx. Tabitha is a lady who will shout to get your attention. She's a little set in her ways with an independent side. She's looking for a new home to retire, that's quiet with lots of places to curl up for a nap! She would need to be the only cat of the household. 
Starsky- Black and White DSLH, male, 6 years old. Eddie- Black and white DSH, male, 2 years old.Starsky and Eddie are lovely boys who get on very well together. They are timid boys looking for a special someone who will give them the time they need to settle and blossom. Eddie is more confident than his friend and does come forward for attention. They are looking for an older family as they need a fairly quiet, calm home.
Torbie and white DLH, 3 years approxSaffron is a very pretty girl who is shy and still settling into cattery life. She tends to hide away more, but with time we hope she will reveal her affectionate side we know she has. She is looking for a quiet home where she can settle in her own time and gain her confidence.
