Top 3 Reasons Why Microchipping Cats Matters 

A few months into owning your new feline friend, your veterinarian will most likely ask if you’d like a cat microchip. About the same size as a grain of rice, this tiny device comes with some pretty big benefits. 

From offering peace of mind in an emergency to giving you real-time insights into your cat’s activity with microchip-enabled devices, here are the most important reasons why microchipping cats matters.

1. Cat Microchips Make Emergencies a Lot Less Scary. 

According to American Humane, about 10 million pets are lost every year. Even indoor cats can slip out an open window or door. What’s even more tragic, however, is that only 2 percent of cats without tags or microchips are returned to their loving home. 

But the good news is that this nightmarish scenario can be avoided with a cat microchip. Unlike collars and tags, a microchip is securely inserted under your cat’s skin, so you never have to worry about it getting caught or removed. 

And although it’s not GPS-enabled, a microchip contains a unique number that’s uploaded to a registry like the HomeAgain® National Pet Recovery Database along with your contact details. That way should the unthinkable happen, all one has to do is scan your cat’s microchip, and they’ll be able to view your contact information and make sure your pet is returned safe and sound. 

As an added bonus, registries like HomeAgain® have 24/7 call centers filled with specialists who can distribute Lost Pet Alerts at any time.

2. A Microchip Pet Feeder Enables You to Monitor Their Health in the Home. 

If you’re worried about your cat eating too much or too little food, then the SureFeed® Microchip Pet Feeder Connect might be the perfect solution. 

This device syncs with your cat’s microchip and offers real-time insights on their feeding habits so you can see when, how often, and how much food your cat is eating. This is especially important if your cat is on a weight management diet or if you live in a multipet home to help prevent food stealing between pets. 

3. A Microchip Cat Door Gives Your Cat Freedom (And Keeps Other Cats Out). 

Millions of cats have the option to wander outside their home. But when your cat is done with their outdoor adventures for the day, chances are you don’t want any unfamiliar faces your cat may have met along the way to enter your home. 

That’s where microchip-enabled devices like the SureFlap® Microchip Cat Door Connect come into play. 

This microchip cat door syncs with your cat’s individual microchip and will only open when it’s recognized, so you can rest assured that intruder animals will stay out of your home. 

Plus, by using the Sure Petcare App, you can create curfews, remotely lock or unlock the microchip cat door, receive real-time notifications, and even monitor their long-term activity and notice any potentially troublesome changes in their behavior. 

The Benefits of Microchipping Cats 

Across all of these key benefits, there’s a common theme throughout. Because when it comes down to it, microchipping cats is all about offering you peace of mind so that regardless of the situation, you know your cat is safe and healthy in and around their loving home.
