Mystery of lost Norwich cat with blank micro-chip
A cat is struggling to find its way back into the hands of its owners despite being micro-chipped.
The grey mog, which is currently being looked after at a cattery on Barrack Street, should have the name and address of its keeper stored on the device under the skin, but this one has turned out blank.
Staff at the RSPCA Norwich and Mid-Norfolk branch believe the chip may have never been registered, or the procedure took place in another country.
Animal Care Supervisor, Danah Fadhel, said: 'It is a shame because micro-chipping is the best way to ensure that a lost animal can be returned to you.'
If this is your cat contact the cattery on 01603 766001. The owner will be asked for a photograph and other details to prove the cat is theirs.
