When we adopted our female from the shelter they mircochipped her for free.
We inquired about getting our male done but it would cost too much. They
are apartment cats for now so not much to worry about. When however we do
move out of our apartment, we will see again about getting our male done.
Both Spayed BTW.
Just when I manage to convince
myself I'm a superior being,
I walk into a door...
