Cat collars frequently become lost, and rightly so! The correct collar to choose for your cat must have a quick release catch in order to prevent your cat from becoming injured by the collar when snagged on branches etc.
Microchipping is permanent identification which involves injecting a chip under your cat’s skin at the neck which is approximately the size of a grain of rice. The chip is then registered on a central database where all your details and your cat’s details are stored.
This is a permanent identification tag, which allows the person scanning your cat i.e. rescue centre/vet to identify you as the owner, should your cat ever become lost.
