Safeguard Your Cat Using Identification Tools
Your cat can get outside and get lost. Thus you need to ensure that she has identification on her at all times to get her back to you quickly. Provide your contact information on a breakaway collar with an identification tag for anyone who finds your cat. The breakaway feature of the collar allows it to come off rather than strangle your cat if it gets caught on a branch or other permanent item. To the casual observer, a collar is a clear indicator that your cat is a pet and not a stray. Consider getting a microchip inserted under your cat’s skin. When animal control or the police scan the chip, they can cross-reference its unique number to your contact information and then your cat can be returned to you. A combination of these forms of identification work best for most families.Contact your Pleasanton, CA vet to learn more.
