Both of my cats are chipped. This made me feel secure until I thought about it. If my cats were to escape, which some cats love to do. if found someone might not bother to see if the animals were chipped. Secondly, the chips can be dislodged, at least that is what I have heard from two pet lovers. What if someone takes a liking to the animal and doesn’t bother to search for the owner? There is no fool-proof option. Perhaps pet owners could train their pets to be distant to strangers? You know, turn down the charm and cute button?
Maybe the best insurance against losing an animal is to be very loving, feed them like kings and queens and watch the exit doors?
