Today's heartwarming tale of animals and technology: I had a call from my local vet this morning to say that someone had handed in my cat, who ran away a month ago.
It's doubtful I'd ever have got him back if he hadn't been fitted with a microchip, which is registered with a central database whom you can phone to report missing animals. The vet scanned the chip, which brought up the fact that he was missing, together with my mobile number. Bingo! One very happy cat owner. Hurrah for subcutaneous tracking devices!*
One very disgruntled, manky and skinny cat, though. Bless him.
UPDATE: mine did only get as far as the next street, unlike this one (thanks LC for that).
* Sorry, identification devices (thanks Stef)
