No you've got it all wrong, the cat ditched the family to find it's fortune in the big city.

What an absolutely beautiful cat. She's gorgeous.

Too bad cats can't talk. I'm sure Willow would have quite the tale to tell.

“If I could microchip my kids, I would.” - heh

Other sources: "Lost pets find their owners in 3 out of 4 cases when they are microchipped. California is considering a law that will make microchipping mandatory..."

You know what sucks about microchipping, though? You have to pay $15 per month, per pet, to keep the chip's records active. I didn't know this when I got Bob chipped, thinking the $50 bucks it cost to get the chip implanted was the whole expense. For a cat that may live 20 years, you're looking at $3600 per pet. That's just nuts.

Really? I'm not paying anything for Sookie's chip. $15 a month is ridiculous for 2 bytes of data storage.

Did anyone consider the cat's feelings? That sucker walked 1800 miles to live in a far superior city. Then all that walking ::bang:: wasted. That cat is cursing up a storm right now.

Yeah, I have both my cats microchipped and am not paying anything extra beyond the initial fee. At their annual checkup, the vet always checks that it's working and that their data still comes up on the computer. So... maybe it depends on which company you get the chip through?

I never started paying the fee for Bob's microchip, so he has no data on file at the moment. My vet must be hooked up with a shady chip company, which wouldn't surprise me at all, unfortunately.

The Shady Chip Company. A black ops subsidiary of the Frito-Lay corporation.

I wonder if there's a second family who will now be sad she's gone. O_o
