The great number of cats and other pets that go missing every year is of great concern to all the parties that are involved: the animals themselves, their owner, and the people who find and rescue them. It does not matter what the age of the animal is; this is a traumatic event for all involved and it is something that something such as a cat id tag can help to prevent.
This is something that all animal rescue places care about: it becomes easier to deliver the animal to their proper owners should they go missing and someone – generally a rescue worker – finds them. These type of cats generally have a far higher rate of being reunited with their families than other pets who do not wear cat tags for ease of identification.
This lack of tending to the needs of the animals significantly worsens not only the rate at which they’re reunited with their families but it also presents difficulties for the person who finds the pet. All of this can easily be avoided by finding a cat id tag for the pet to wear that they will enjoy wearing.
Ensure that the cat tag be durable, easy to clean, and lightweight. Its durability will ensure that it will not need to be replaced often, its light weight will ensure that the pet will not even realise it is carrying something of importance around its neck, and tags that are easy to clean can make life simpler and easier in the event that it goes missing.
You may want to consider adding the possibility of a reward for the pet’s safe return should they go missing. This will hopefully provide the person who found the pet with more impetus to return the poor pet to you and your family.
Something else to consider is to keep a spare cat tag handy. This will be convenient for when the original tag is lost and will save you having to find a new one quickly. You will be able to continue caring for your pet with absolutely no interruption in your daily routine.
Doing all of these things will ensure that the chances of reunification with your pet will be high if they ever go missing. It is, however, important to note that the most important aspect of the cat tag should be safety, and not whether it is pink, red or yellow.
