This is Why It Is Important To Microchip Your Cat

Story from Tucson's Humane Society! Its a happy story!

A happy reunion unfolded at the HSSA today! Nala had been missing for a year and a half. Her heartbroken family took all of the right steps toward finding her. They filed a lost report with us, checked all the local shelters, updated Nala’s microchip registration with new contact information and never gave up hope. Their determination paid off when we scanned this little found tabby for a microchip and– Voilà – Nala is now going home!

Did you know that 1 in 3 pets will become lost in their lifetime and pets with a microchip are 30 percent more likely to be returned to their owners?

YAY! One that has found its way back home!!
For what microchiping costs...it is a small price to pay...to have that extra coverage, just in case...

An everyday family name; A particular name;

Be sure and get them chipped before you move. As crazy as moving gets it would be in your best interest if it was already done before the big move to a house.

I don't like those odds either, 0ozma :/ Reading this makes me glad that my shelter chips all cats before they are adopted out

Great story well Yuki was AWOL for 5 days in September and I made sure her chip info was updated. I hope she never does that again!
