Modern Cat - - Ask Tri­cia Helfer -

En­sure your cat is mi­crochipped and your con­tact in­for­ma­tion is cur­rent and up to date. You can up­date your con­tact de­tails by con­tact­ing the pet mi­crochip reg­istry your cat is en­rolled with. Visit the com­pany’s web­site to get their phone num­ber or to up­date your cat's info on­line. Not sure which mi­crochip your cat has? Call your vet and ask. It will be in your cat's vet­eri­nary records. Get a col­lar—we love Furo­cious Kitty's unique de­signs (etsy.com/ shop/furo­ciouskitty)—with an ID tag that clearly states that your cat is an in­door cat and should be re­turned to his home if found, such as Bad Tag’s “If I’m Out I’m Lost” tag. ($13, etsy.com/shop/BadTags) Make sure your cat is up to date on all shots, and flea and tick treat­ments. When out­doors, cats can pick up things in­door-only cats sim­ply aren’t ex­posed to.
