Microchip your cat for just £10

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 procedure 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.

Please contact us for more information.

Black DSLH, female, 2 years old approx.Midnight is a beautiful girl with a heart of gold. She is very gentle and affectionate. She also loves to play and can be very energetic. She is looking for a loving new family who can offer her the companionship she craves. She would be better as the only cat, so she can lap up all of the attention. She's been with us a little while now but we can't understand why as she is such a charming little cat. She's watched all her kittens go off to their happy new homes and is still waiting for her turn.
Black and white DSH male, 2 years old.Eddie is such a dapper looking gent, with striking green eyes. Sadly he isn't very trusting of people, so he will need a lot of time and patience to win him over but it will be worth it! He would suit a quiet household where he can relax and feel safe. He would need to be the only cat of the household. 
Tortie Female, 11 years old approx. Tabitha is a very loving girl with lots of love to give. She likes to sit on your lap and enjoys human company and loves to be groomed. She often meows to greet you and invites you to give her a fuss. Although she is a creature of habit and likes her routine, she is looking forward to fitting into a lovely new home, with a nice garden to sunbathe in. She came to us after her owner sadly passed away. When she arrived, she was quite hairless and sore, but with regular flea treatment and TLC, she is now looking great, with the thickest coat in the cattery.
