You may have seen the Facebook post today, December 27, 2019, regarding the deceased cat on Route 94 in Blairstown. I removed the cat and like every other cat, but two, none were microchipped. If cat owners would have their cats chipped they would significantly increase the probability of the cat getting back home. And, like the orange cat today, the owner could be notified and have closure. Your vet can help with the chipping."
The comments to the post were interesting. From 'spend a $1:00 and get a collar" to "get a GPS tracking devise" to "get your cat chipped".
At the end of the day, the best way for a lost cat or dog to find its way home is with a microchip. Collars can come loose, tags can be lost, but a chip stays with the animal forever. All vets and animal shelters have scanners. I carry a microchip scanner. In fact, I was called out to a 'dog at large' call and when I arrived I scanned the dog, received the code, placed a phone call and the owner picked up their dog in 15 minutes!
And in the case of the deceased orange cat , the owner could be notified and have closure.
Microchipping is a wise investment in your pet.
