Even though my two Devons are strictly indoor cats, I had them micro-chipped. after the 2005 Katrina hurricane when so many pets went missing. Those that were micro-chipped had a greater chance of being reunited with their owners than those that weren't. You just never know when a cat may get outside, get spooked and run away. It could be during a medical emergency, a fire, flood, tornado or someone carelessly closing a door and leaving it ajar. One time one of my cats did get outside from a family member who didn't properly close the door....Zuba was just sitting outside it and ran back in when he saw me approach, but Alkee had gone exploring in the front garden. Better to be safe than sorry, I say.
