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.

Tortie and white female, 10 years old.Cookie is a sweet natured girl who loves a fuss and a lap to curl up on and get as much love as she truly deserves. She would need to be the only pet in the household.  
Black DSH female, 5 years old.Hettie is a very beautiful girl with her stunning jet black coat. She can be very affectionate and sociable, rubbing round your legs and purring. She does sometimes prefer to get away from it all, but soon comes back to you for more fuss. We feel she'll be much more relaxed and contented in a home environment and will be a lovely companion. She is looking for an older family to settle down with. She would like to be the only pet so she can be number one in your life.
Ginger Tabby domestic short haired 11 years old.Jasper is a true gentleman in every sense of the word. With his gorgeous ginger coat and handsome face and loving calm nature he is a pleasure to have around. He loves to be picked up and cuddled and fussed and he also likes to have a chat too. He would suit a calm environment that's not too hectic as he likes a cosy lap to sit on.
