Avoiding potential "hang-ups"
Many people don’t put collars on their cats, especially if those cats are exclusively indoors. Unfortunately as this story demonstrates, even
“indoor-only” cats will occasionally get out
There’s little debate that identifying your cat — ideally with both a collar/tag and a microchip — is your best bet for getting your cat back should they ever become lost. (A possibility that’s sadly
even more likely to happen with the upcoming fireworks
on and around the 4th of July!)
4th of July,
Do you know what day is historically the busiest day of the year in animal shelters all across the country? It’s the FIFTH of July.
Do you know why? Yup, you guessed it… fireworks!
In reality though, that’s only partially right. The real reasons are a bit more involved than just “fireworks.” And to truly do something about the staggering number of pets that wind up in shelters each year on July 5th, it’s important that you be aware of these reasons. Of course, it’s even more important that you’re aware of and take the easy steps to prevent your cats and dogs from becoming lost and also increasing your chances of being reunited with them should your preventive efforts fail.
