The surest means to find a cat if it is lost or stolen.
France, since the protection of animals law of January 6, 1999,
all cats must be identified before sale. Since the law of July 2,
2001, two means of identification are possible permitting the assignment
of an exclusive number, along with an identification card registering
the cat in a national file:
- traditionnal tatoo.
identification by a painless implant of an inert electronic chip
(it does not contain any energy source) under the skin to the
left of the cat's throat. It has several advantages:
esthetic than the tradional tatoo, unsightly in the ear
- no side
recognized, already widely used in other European countries
and in the United States.
- can be
read by all veterinary or qualified personnel who access the
national file and therefore contact the owner.
