Microchipping Your Cat

For All Cat Lovers!

As you may know, cats (by the time they are 20 weeks old) need to be microchipped by the 10th of June 2024 (unless they are farm or feral cats). A £500 government fine could be levied otherwise.


Why is it Good to Microchip your cat?

  • Your cat might get lost or stolen – vets or animal welfare organisations will scan lost cats for microchips.
  • Unlike collars and ID tags, microchips don’t come off and they don’t put your cat at risk of injury.
  • The procedure to microchip your cat is quick and is no more painful than an injection.
  • You can even get microchip matched cat flaps!

If your cat is already microchipped, check with your chip provider that your details are up to date.


Please call to ask if you have any questions.
