Microchipping Your Pets

I just spent some time calling around to get this information for my new kitties, so I thought I’d share for the convenience of other pet owners.
A microchip ID is safe, quick and easy lifetime protection that takes just minutes to complete. Should your pet become lost or stolen, your pet can be scanned by any shelter or vet and the microchip identification will assist in its return.
{Coming in a few years is a chip that will have global positioning, so you can use GPS software and locate your pet by satellite and held-held GPS device. This technology isn’t on the market yet, however.}
