RE; MICROCHIPS I was not aware the chips migrated. I only have 1 cat chiped, Nitnoy. She hasen't had any problems. Got to check with my vet on that and the cancer. On cancer, the University of Missouri if opening an Animal Cancer Care in Wentzville which is only 1/ 2 hour drive from me. I am glad for that, driving to Columbia is hard to do and takes a lot more gas.
AS TO ANIMAL SHELTERS, IN LINCOLN COUNTY, THEY CALL IT ANIMAL CONTROL AND THEY JUST TAKE THEM OUT ALONG THE HIGHWAY AND SHOOT THEM. fORTUNATELY, WE HAVE A NO KILL SHELTER IN tROY. rIGHT NOW THEY AND OTHERS IN NEARBY COUNTIES ARE FULL UP WITH DOGS AND CATS AS PEOPLE ARE JUST TURNING THEIR ANIMALS LOOSE WHEN THEY LOOSE THEIR HOUSE AND JOB. iT IS HARDER ON THE ANIMALS I THINK AS WE HAVE MADE THEM DEPENDENT ON US FOR FOOD AND SHELTER AND TAUGHT THEM TO OVE AND TRUST AND THN TURNED THEM OUT TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES. ---- Natalie <at...@optonline.net> wrote: > Easy - not a single cat goes outside - they have safe outdoor enclosures! > > -----Original Message----- > From: felvtalk-boun...@felineleukemia.org > [mailto:felvtalk-boun...@felineleukemia.org] On Behalf Of MaiMaiPG > Sent: Wednesday, May 25, 2011 7:29 AM > To: email@example.com > Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Collars > > How do you deal with coyotes and dog packs? > On May 25, 2011, at 6:01 AM, Lorrie wrote: > > > On 05-24, Natalie wrote: > > > >> But were you aware that microchips can cause cancer?
