Microchipping Your Cat
Even indoor cats can sometimes slip out an open door. Because they can be so difficult to find and catch if they do escape, it is important to microchip your cats.
Microchips are tiny, about the size of a grain of rice and can be inserted under the skin during a routine veterinary visit or when your cat is undergoing anesthesia for any reason. If your cat is microchipped, it will help animal shelters, veterinary hospitals and animal control quickly identify your cat and have them safely returned home.
