Cats need some form of identification, regardless of whether they’re indoor or indoor/outdoor cats. Even indoor cats can slip out the door and get lost. Wearing identification, whether it’s a collar and tag, or a microchip, can increase the chances of a lost cat being returned to its home.
While most veterinarians and cat experts recommend microchips for all cats, there can be some problems with them.
In a recent article for Answers.com, I wrote about the risks and benefits of microchips for cats. I also addressed the issue of whether the chips can cause cancer. Click here to read the full article.
Allegra and Ruby are microchipped, even though they never go outside.
Are your cats microchipped?
