Thanks Natalie. Knowledge is definitely power.

But I think I would rather keep the chip. You can treat cancer, but you

Has anyone heard about tattooing cats? I know AKC dogs sometimes get
tattoos, but I have never heard of it in cats.

I want my animal to have some form of permanent identification on them in
case they get lost.
