cat chip database

Why register your cat’s current microchip with us?

Key benefits to having your pets microchipped.

As the leading UK cat database, we are often asked by feline owners the best way to trace their cats. There is no such microchip that can trace your cat electronically because of the frequency of the microchip which operates at 134.2Khz.

As a database directed by one of the countries leading commercial veterinary data systems scientists Ian Gould, our link with over 5,300 verified vets, all UK animal charities, and each one of the UK’s council warden districts allows a secure national network gateway that can access the cat’s contact details and veterinary details, quickly respond to a missing or stolen cats alerts and is the only database to register all cat microchips within minutes.

Once implanted the cat microchip will last for your cat’s entire lifetime? Your cat microchip registration will also last your cat’s entire lifetime as well with no further charges for change of information to the Cat Microchip Database data cloud which is operated solely by Pet Identity UK.

Published in the Vet Times in April 2019 for their outstanding development of the veterinary industry’s most advanced animal data systems PREDICT the Cat Microchip Database now operates under the same data systems, administrated by Pet Identity UK and controlled by the Cat Microchip Database feline care team.

How Do Cats Communicate?

Cats can’t tell you how they are feeling, but they have their own unique way of showing you exactly what they want.

How do cats communicate? Just like dogs, cats use a combination of vocal and physical signals. Perhaps you have wondered why your cat often flicks his tail or kneads you with his paws. All these quirky behaviours are actually forms of communication.


We learn from an early age that cats meow, but did you know that cats only make this sound when they are communicating with people? Cats don’t meow at each other!

There are different meows for different situations and this is important for cat owners to better understand what their cat needs.

  1. Hello

This meow is short and chirpy. Cats use this meow to greet their owners or people they are familiar with.

  1. I’m Here

This meow is often used by cats as they enter a room or come out from a hiding place. Cats like to announce themselves, often because they know they will receive positive attention such as strokes or even hearing you talk to them.

  1. I Need Something

This demanding meow is loud and slightly longer than the meow used for greetings. It is designed to get your attention and let you know the cat wants something. The demanding meow is repeated every few seconds if the cat doesn’t get what they want. This could be food, letting outside, or attention.

  1. I’m Not Sure About This

Anxious cats will meow in a similar fashion to a kitten. The meow is high-pitched, almost squeaky, and will be repeated almost like they are talking. If you have ever taken your cat to the vet in a carrier, you will have heard this same noise.

  1. NO!

This last meow is one that every cat owner has heard at some point. This is the warning meow, used to deter people from coming closer. A warning meow is a low-pitched, drawn-out meow that is designed to make the cat appear intimidating. If you do not take notice of this meow, you will most likely be on the receiving end of a sharp scratch, hiss, or bite!


It is not just meowing that cats use to get our attention. They also make a chirping noise similar to the noises a guinea pig would make. These sounds indicate a relaxed or contented cat and often occur during play or when the cat is being stroked.


Cats do not meow to one another, but they will use growls, hisses, and screeches to warn away other cats, strange people or anything else they deem a threat. Cat fights can be heard several houses away as the screeching is so loud and intense. It is designed to scare the other cat into retreating and prevent a physical fight.

Eye Contact

Eye contact is important for cats. when they greet one another, they will squint or slow blink. This is a way of saying ‘hi, I am friendly’. You may have seen your cat do this same thing to you when you come home from work or when your cat returns from a day of exploring outdoors.

Cats do not like prolonged eye contact as this is seen as a threat or sign of aggression. Cats who hold eye contact are either feeling threatened or agitated.

Slow blinking at a cat who you have just met is a great way of helping the cat feel relaxed in your presence, as you are showing them that you are not dangerous.

Ear Position

The way a cat holds its ears says a lot about how it is feeling. Ears held erect and forwards signal a cat who is alert, interesting or excited. Cats have excellent hearing and can move their ears independently. This means they can be focused on something in front of them, but still turn one ear if they hear a noise from a different direction.

Ears held slightly folded and to the side show that a cat is feeling unsure about a situation. The ears may also twitch between a folded and upright position as the cat investigates the source of their uneasiness.

An angry or scared cat will hold their ears pointing backward and flat to their head. you should not approach a cat with its ears pinned back as it may react aggressively.

Body Language

Cats use lots of different body language signals to display their feelings to their owners and other cats.

  • Arched back with fur lying flat shows an eagerness to be stroked.
  • Arched back with fur standing on end signals a cat who is agitated and wants to be left alone.
  • A crouched body position and tucked tail suggest an uneasy or nervous cat.
  • Exposing the stomach is a form of showing trust.
  • A tail held straight up signals excitement or happiness.
  • A twitching tail shows alertness
  • A swishing or wagging tail signals annoyance or frustration

Cats often use their tail when communicating with other cats. Two cats involved in a standoff will flick their tails held low to the ground to show that they are not happy with the situation. Cats who are approaching one another in a friendly greeting will hold their tails erect.

Scent Marking

Cats have scent glands in their cheeks, under the chin, above their eyes, the inside edges of their ears, their paw pads, the lower back where the tail joins the body, and along the tail itself.

Cats use their scent glands to pass on information to other cats. If you see your cat rubbing against a tree in the garden, they are marking their territory so other neighbour cats know who lives there.

Cats will rub on their owners as a way of marking them. This is often seen as a form of affection by cat owners, but it is more like the cat saying, ‘you belong to me’.


As we have learned, cats have scent glands in their paws and will knead on surfaces to mark their territory, but kneading serves other purposes. Kittens will knead at their mother’s mammary glands to encourage better milk flow to the teats during nursing.

Older cats will knead on a surface to create a more comfortable resting area. this might be a thick patch of grass or the cushions on your sofa. It is believed that this is a passover from wild cats who knead at the ground to create a hollow for resting.

Intrоduсtiоn Tо Bеngаl Cаtѕ

The Bеngаl cat iѕ a hуbrid breed рrоduсеd by сrоѕѕing the dоmеѕtiс cat with an Aѕiаn Lеораrd cat. Such сrоѕѕ-brееding dеѕirеѕ to рrоduсе a саt thаt looks wild but has the temperament оf a dоmеѕtiс саt.

Following are some of the characteristics of Bengal Cats

Physical Body


Thе mоѕt distinct feature оf the Bеngаl саt is itѕ еxtrеmеlу ѕоft, thiсk, аnd uniquely patterned соаt. Thеrе аrе twо different patterns rесоgniѕеd within thе Bеngаl cat brееd. Thоѕе аrе ѕроttеd аnd mаrblеiѕеd. Thе ѕроttеd соаt iѕ сlоѕеѕt to its lеораrd ancestor, featuring lеораrd spots in vаrуing shades оf brоwn, ruѕt, оrаngе, ѕаnd, blасk, and grey. Thе marbleised coat iѕ produced frоm thе mixing оf the Asian Leopard cat with a dоmеѕtiс tabby to рrоduсе splotches that look mоrе likе mаrblе. In еithеr саѕе, thе Bengal саt hаѕ a look thаt iѕ bоth strikingly beautiful аnd wild.

Other thаn the coat, аnоthеr diѕtinguiѕhing fеаturе thаt ѕеtѕ it араrt frоm оthеr cats iѕ its muѕсulаr bоdу, more prominent in males thаn females. Bеngаl саtѕ are vеrу аthlеtiс, ѕlееk, аnd muscular.



Thе Bengal саt lоvеѕ tо bе раrt оf thе fаmilу. They love to interact and play. Thiѕ iѕ nоt tо ѕау thеу will nоt seek out a soft сhаir or lар in whiсh tо liе for a nap but fоr thе mаjоritу оf thе day, they are vеrу асtivе саtѕ. Bеing a high еnеrgу cat, thеу are not fоr ѕоmеоnе lооking fоr a dосilе animal tо lоungе аrоund the house and lооk рrеttу.

Thе еxоtiс heritage оf Bеngаl саt mаkеѕ it uniԛuе both in lооk and personality. Even though it takes fivе generations оf Bеngаl-tо-Bеngаl brееding tо рrоduсе a linе rесоgnizеd аѕ a Bеngаl cat, these felines hаvе a wild аnсеѕtrаl hеritаgе, аnd ѕоmе of that inѕtinсtѕ can ѕtill be ѕееn in late gеnеrаtiоnѕ through thеir еxtrеmе intеlligеnсе, high energy, and innаtе сuriоѕitу. This iѕ a саt thаt loves tо рlау аnd will dеmаnd intеrасtiоn with their оwnеrѕ but in a mоѕt рlеаѕаnt wау. Some оwnеrѕ also rероrt that thеir Bеngаl саt loves wаtеr and will ѕhоwеr with them.

Hоwеvеr, in саѕе уоu wаnt tо рurсhаѕе a Bеngаl саt, there аrе some thingѕ уоu need tо know before you go out and grab оnе to take hоmе; оthеrwiѕе, your nеw pet may еnd up rеgrеtting уоur асtiоn.

Space Requirement


Bеngаl саtѕ need mоrе ѕрасе thаn thе аvеrаgе cat due tо their nаturаl curiosity and activity level. You mау find thе оddbаll that likеѕ to wаѕtе his dау lоаfing around, but most will nоt еnjоу thаt lifеѕtуlе аnd will rеԛuirе mоrе than аvеrаgе ѕрасе аnd environmental ѕtimulаtiоn.

Grooming Needs


Most Bеngаl саtѕ lоvе wаtеr and dо nоt avoid bаthing. Yоu саn make a рrореr routine fоr bаthing ѕеѕѕiоnѕ оf уоur Bengal саt. Hоwеvеr, bathing domestic cats iѕ not a nесеѕѕitу. They also likе to gеt themselves brushed tо remove dead hаir frоm thеir bodies. Thеу are mоrе intо self-grooming, and the firѕt thing thеу рrеfеr to dо аftеr wаking uр is brushing thеir bоdiеѕ. A rеgulаr nail trimming ѕеѕѕiоn must be conducted ѕо thаt nо оnе gets ѕсrаtсhеd bу their ѕhаrр nаilѕ.

Activity Level


Bеngаl саtѕ take wау mоrе еxеrсiѕе thаn the average саt dоеѕ, аnd thеir mоrning yoga rоutinе will wеаr you оut to wаtсh it. Thеу enjoy bеing wаlkеd, аnd ѕhоuld nеvеr bе outside off a leash оutdооrѕ, or уоur саt will dеmоnѕtrаtе that еnjоуmеnt on the nеаrbу trees, аnd gеtting уоur Bengal саt tо come bасk dоwn could bе рrоblеmаtiс.

Health Problems


Aѕ with аnу brееd оf саt оr dоg, ѕоmе mеdiсаl iѕѕuеѕ seems tо bе mоrе соmmоnрlасе thаn others. For the Bеngаl саtѕ, thе most соmmоn hеаlth problems ѕееn bу veterinarians аrе аѕ fоllоwѕ:


Prоgrеѕѕivе Retinal Atrорhу – Thiѕ рrоblеm eventually causes blindnеѕѕ. Thеrе iѕ nо way tо ѕсrееn fоr thiѕ problem, so thеrе is nо wау fоr a brееdеr tо tell if a kittеn will hаvе рrоblеmѕ lаtеr оn.

Cataracts – Thiсkеning аnd сlоuding оf the eye lеnѕ, causing lоѕѕ оf vision over ѕоmе time and еvеntuаl blindnеѕѕ. Thiѕ problem саn bе rеvеrѕеd ѕinсе саtаrасt ѕurgеrу is available fоr саtѕ.

Cardiomyopathy – This covers bоth thiсkеning оf the heart muѕсlеѕ аnd thinning of the heart muѕсlеѕ, both causing very рооr circulation. Bеngаl Cats stricken with this соnditiоn саn арреаr healthy fоr a vеrу long timе and thеn ѕuddеnlу арреаr vеrу ill.

Inflаmmаtоrу Bоwеl Diѕеаѕе – This is a condition in which аn infесtiоn iѕ present within the digеѕtivе trасt. Thе ѕуmрtоmѕ оf thiѕ condition are tурiсаllу vomiting and diаrrhеа. Anу Bеngаl саt showing ѕуmрtоmѕ ѕhоuld be tаkеn tо thе veterinarian immеdiаtеlу tо аvоid dehydration.

Fооd Pоiѕоning – Bеngаl cats hаvе еѕресiаllу sensitive stomachs. For this rеаѕоn, thеir diets ѕhоuld be carefully monitored, аnd tаblе ѕсrарѕ ѕhоuld nеvеr bе оn thе menu.



Proper vассinаtiоn iѕ еѕѕеntiаl fоr the prevention оf diseases in уоur Bеngаl саt. Tаlk tо a vеt аbоut thе vассinаtiоnѕ required.

Cat Microchipping Made Compulsory

The government has announced today that all cats in the UK must be microchipped and registered on a UK Defra-compliant database to help reunite lost and stray pets.

Lost or stray pet cats are more likely to be reunited with their owners and returned home safely under new pet microchipping rules announced by the Government today.

All pet owners must ensure their pets are microchipped before they reach the age of 20 weeks and their contact details stored and kept up to date in a UK pet microchipping database. Owners found not to have microchipped their cat will have 21 days to have one implanted or may face a fine of up to £500.

There are over 10.8 million pet cats in the UK, with as many as 2.8 million unchipped, meaning that it would be very difficult to reunite them with their owner if they get lost or stolen. Eight out of 10 stray cats coming into Cats Protection’s centres are not microchipped.

The simple procedure involves inserting a small chip with a unique serial number under a cat’s skin. This number can be read by a scanner and checked against a UK microchip database to help reunite lost pets quicker with their registered keeper, saving heartache and concern.

All owners must have their cat microchipped by 10 June 2024 and owners found not to have microchipped their cat will have 21 days to have one implanted or may face a fine of up to £500.

How To Safely Introduce Cats

Cats are inquisitive and intelligent animals so you might think they would enjoy a feline friend for company. Before you jump straight into finding a new kitty companion, consider your current cat’s needs and personality. Unlike dogs, cats are territorial, so introducing a new cat into your home should be done with plenty of patience.

Choosing The Right Cat

Much like we humans like to play matchmaker for our friends, you should do the same for your cat if you are considering adding another cat to your home. Cats have individual personalities so it is important that the new cat is a good fit.

If your cat is playful and active, they should get on well with a confident kitten, but they may struggle to accept a nervous cat. Likewise, if your cat is quiet and laid back, they will not tolerate a rambunctious new roommate who wants to play all day.

Plan Ahead

Before bringing your new cat home, you should prepare your current cat and your home so everyone is ready for the new arrival. A sudden or unplanned introduction will likely cause both cats to become defensive and hostile towards one another. This is not a good start to a new relationship and it is difficult to recover from this. Here are some top tips to ensuring the introduction goes smoothly:

  • Start by preparing a safe space for the newcomer which is separate from the current cat. This could be a spare bedroom, the conservatory, or the laundry room. This will provide the new cat a quiet area to settle into before they meet the resident cat. If cats do not feel safe, they will be in a constant state of anxiety and any introduction will be ruined.
  • Introduce the cats to each other’s scents before they meet. Before you bring your new cat home, you should introduce their scent to your resident cat and vice versa. This can be done very easily using a cotton pad or something each cat has come into contacts with, such as a blanket or a cuddly toy.
  • Allow each cat to find these items naturally and gradually move them around the house so that your current cat gets used to the new cat’s scent. Ask the owner of your new cat to do the same in the days before you bring them home.
  • On the day you bring your new cat home, do not allow either cat to see the other, but do allow them to sniff one another through a solid barrier such as a door or a doorway divider. Each cat can sniff the other through the gap under the door and they should be familiar with the other cat’s scent if the previous step was done successfully.
  • For the first few days, you should place food and water bowls away from the divider. You can then slowly move the bowls closer to the door until both cats are comfortably eating together on either side of the partition.
  • When your cats appear settled with one another, you can then introduce them by sight. Fit transparent door divider or baby gate so the cats can see each other but they cannot touch. If the gaps between the bars of your baby gate are too wide, you can cover the gate with cling film or clear sheeting.
  • It is important that they cannot touch each other yet in case they are not friendly during this first meeting. The two cats should be left to greet one another without any interference. Do not push the cats together or try to encourage them close together. They should greet one another on their own terms to avoid any hostility.
  • After 2 or 3 days of visual greetings, your cats should now be comfortable with each other. Once you get to a point where both cats are actively seeking out the other and lying together on either side of the divider, you can introduce them to the same room. Again, it is vital that you do not force the introduction.
  • Open the divider and allow the cats to find each other themselves. keep the meeting short, even if it is a positive one. Don’t worry if they seem nervous at first or if one cat hides. This is normal while they get used to each other and establish themselves. growling and hissing are ok provided one or both cats back off. If neither do and they are physically aggressive, separate them immediately and repeat the meetings with the door divider for a while longer.
  • Successful meetings can be gradually extended until both cats are comfortable. Ensure both cats have separate places they can go when they want some privacy. If your current cat likes to snuggle on the sofa, only allow your new cat to join in if the resident cat is comfortable with this. Remember, your older cat is used to having you and the house to themselves. They are learning to share which can take time.

Encourage Playtime

Once your cats are accepting of one another’s company, you can help to strengthen their relationship through play. Cat toys such as balls with rattles or teaser wands are a great way to get your cats engaged.

Your resident cat may be territorial of their toys, so try to have some new toys that are neutral to both cats. keep the play sessions short and end them on a positive note. This will help the cats to associate each other with fun and excitement.

If your cats are not particularly playful, you can try using interactive games like puzzle mats instead. You can also use an old cardboard box with holes cut out and place some treats inside. Your cats then have to use their paws to retrieve the treats.

Final tips

The key to any successful introduction is time and patience. An introduction should take at least 2 weeks before the cats meet without a barrier.

Watch both cats closely and look for signs of contentment. This includes lying close to one another, giving casual glances to the other cat, purring, and rubbing their bodies against the barrier.

Never force 2 cats together if they are showing signs of anxiety such as pinned ears, raised hackles, and hissing.
