  • Mood:

A small petition

This petition was sent to me by the lost and found officer of our local Cats Protection League. She says:

" Currently there is no legislation in force regarding councils scanning dead cats found on the streets for microchips. They don't even have to check collars for phone numbers or addresses. The distressing thing is they are authorized to dispose of the bodies without even attempting to inform the owners of their cats sad demise. Some councils do have scanners and attempt to do the right thing but most don't. "

I think this is something that would not cost a great deal, but would make a great difference to the owners of many cats. It's grim to find out that your cat has died, but it does mean that you can celebrate his life and move on. It seems like something we should try to do.
