Thanks Cal for the link to the very informative article by Mr. Taylor. Interesting concept and I would think that would be better than having a chip implanted. Read and noted.

I sometimes try to draw my cat. I had a suspicion she didn't fall into a generic cat-agory. Small wonder she is so differant.

Great idea. I'm not a fan of micro-chips but don't want to loose my cats either, should they slip out the door.

Interesting idea.
I have two indoor cats that are not micro- chipped yet, $100 each here, but it will get done. I would love to see a micro-chip that is also a GPS and have an app available for your phone so you could easily track down your best friend if they got out.

I do wonder how microchips affect a body's bio-rhythms as I still hear about animals developing tumors at the injection site.

It always amazes me that a country that goes out to massacre it's wildlife without pity can show such interest in keeping animals as pets.
