A little while ago our friend Frankie asked " If the little tag that Momo wears on his collar is a microchip identification tag?"
Yep, thats what it is.
You know already that Momo lived at our local ASPCA before he came to live with us and before he could come home he had to get his man cat surgery and get his microchip put in.
Sadie has one too, when she was a pup she had what she refers to as "her hoo hoo ectomy" and she also got a chip.
But Sadie's chip has migrated and it is no longer on her back anymore.
The migration of microchips doesn't happen very often, so we kinda think of it as another way to identify Sadie if she ever gets lost and can't find her way home.
Along with Sadie's micro chip she also has a lifetime license.
Sadie says " She can drive a car with her license!" so we hide the car keys from her.
But our state offers a lifetime dog license if your dog is chipped or has an identification tattoo and Sadie said " A tattoo would interfere with her natural beauty.", so we opted for the microchip.
The only one in the house that is not microchipped is Maxx.
Maxx is middle aged and not as active as the other two and very set in her ways, which doesn't include going outside.
In fact Maxx spends most of her time up stairs, so there isn't much of a chance for her to get lost anyway.
