My cats also have not been scanned, but my vet knows exactly how I

they are scanned when a stray is brought in or when there is some
question of ownership. Microchipping has saved many cats and dogs in
those circumstances. The benefits of microchipping was questionable
years ago because there were several different companies that
manufactured the chips, and they were not compatible. The result was
that vets might scan and still miss a chip because the devices they used
would not pick up all chips. That was the situation when I adopted
Holly(RB), so my vet did not recommend chipping her. Fortunately, that
is no longer a problem. In fact, chipping is now considered so
important that the rescue group where I found Selina and Nikki
microchips every cat before they release them for adoption.


I think there was that little blip about 10 years ago when Banfield tried
introducing ISO frequency chips, but fortunately, that was short lived.

Dot and Buster have HomeAgain chips. I don't think that Spicey is chipped
though, come to think of it. Maybe I should get her done.

Spicey was so funny yesterday when she was dashing around a little outside
for the first time, when I let her briefly follow us outside when I was
taking Dot out on her walking jacket.

Hopefully Microsoft won't try to get in on the act, or they will build
theirs to be totally incompatible with all readers currently out there (so
you have to buy their readers) and then they'll take over the industry.

....and every so often your cat will turn blue and won't move
or meow until you press the pink button at the back.

She must be amazed how her life has changed since she came to live with
you. She has changed so much. She was really lucky to have you to look
after her even though she hasn't always shown it.


It's nice having a less tame cat than the others, because the contrast is
so educational. But in the end she couldn't resist her own feline social
instincts, and she's accepted me as her family. She's becoming a bit of a
part-time lap cat.

That's so nice to read, Tak.
