Anyone know where i need to go to get my cat's microchip information changed?

I rescued him from a friend of mine that abused animals. We are no longer friends. Anyway i wasn't too worried about it until he actually got outside. It was completely an accident but i came home one day and he was freaking out screaming to get back in on the front porch. He does have a flea collar on.

Anyway, if he got lost now he'd go back to the person i rescued him from and i dont trust her with him.

Can i even get it changed? Will they think i stole him?

With my cat, the microchip refers them to the vet that inserted it. They keep my information current and on file. Are you sure your refers straight to an individual?

You need to know who the chip is from. Most Vet offices use the Home Again Chip.

This is their website: http://www.homeagainid.com/

They have a link right on the front to change enrollment information. You may have to call them though.

I always heard that any vet could fix it for you.

cut it out, clean it off, punch in your new addy, and shove it back in....

Step 1 - put an actual collar and standard ID tag on the cat with your phone number and addy if you can fit the addy. My cat has both a microchip and standard ID. That way if someone findsmy cat if she ever gets out they can return her directly to me as long as she hasn't lost the first tag/collar.

Step 2- Find out the tag brand, although Home Again as mentioned above *is* used a lot around here, and go through their process to change the tag.

*however* depending on where she got the cat from, there may have been a clause in the adotpion that the cat cannot be given away to someone else. it has to be returned to the shelter. not sure if that wouldl cause any issues in getting the name on the chip changed. Although address changes for the same name aren't usually a huge issue.

Wow, that might actually be a problem. My ex-friend got the animal from the spca and they are all kinds of strict. Hmmm, i guess i'll just have to give him a collar with a tag.

THanks for the information

^ A force that doesnt actually exist but is the observance of two other forces that do exist.
