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.

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 new people. She needs an owner who understands that it may take her a long time to become comfortable in a new home. She is very affectionate on her terms, she like to rub round your legs and hands. We have found she likes to be the one to make contact with us, but can panic when she is touched in return if she's not expecting it. 
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. Provisional Reserve
DSH Black female, 5-6 years old. Hettie is a very beautiful girl with a stunning jet-black coat. She is looking for a home where she will enjoy plenty of outdoor access but can also benefit from home comforts and general ongoing care. Hettie can be affectionate and playful but remains unpredictable as she has an independent side, so she would suit a home where she can choose the comfort of indoors or explore the outdoors in a large garden or small holding. She requires an experienced cat owner who can work with her behavioral problems. With time she may possibly become more settled with her new owners and will require attention on her own terms. She is very sensitive to sudden movements and noise within the home, so would be best in a quiet environment without other cats or young children.
