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.

Black DSH male, 10 years old approx.Jingles is a sweet, gentle lad with different coloured eyes, making him very unique. He can be a little shy initially, but when used to his surroundings, gains in confidence and enjoys a gentle fuss. He would make a good companion cat and would ideally prefer one-on-one attention or a calm, quiet household where he can be himself and develop his loving character. He would also like to be the only pet of the household. 
Tortie DSH female, 13 years old approx.Mavis is a chatty lady who loves a fuss and a cuddle. Mavis is being treated for a thyroid condition which means she has one tablet twice a day to keep things stable. She is very good at taking her medication which is added to her food. She really deserves to find her forever home where she can receive all of the love that she needs.
Tortie DLH female, 10 1/2 years old.Bootzie is an elegant looking girl who would suit a quiet and calm house with no other pets, she would benefit from a routine to help her settle. Bootzie is shy and unsure of people and as such would need an owner who understands that it may take her a long time to become comfortable in a new home.
