Has anybody ever microchipped a feral cat? I was thinking it would be helpful in case someone in town were to catch one of my feral cats since most are put down if taken to animal shelters since they are not friendly to people. A microchip would probably save them since you would be contacted when the cat is first brought in. Has anybody ever had a feral cat microchipped and do you think the vet could do this while they are being spayed or neutered. I would think it wouldn't be a problem to put in a microchip when the cat is knocked out for the surgery because the microchip is so small. I would think that the microchip would also give you some kind of ownership over the cat in case any kind of dispute over ownership were to arise, such as your neighbor wants animal control to euthanize the cat and you want it to live. You would win custody just by saying it is my cat I even have it microchipped. I would think the benefits of a microchip would be great. Any other thoughts???
