Microchips are very small and implanted under the skin of the cat. The microchip has a unique identification number that can be registered online with owner information. If someone finds a cat, they can take the cat to be scanned to see if it has a microchip. This allows the finder to access the owners information and reunite the cat with its owner.
FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. This is one of the most common infectious diseases in cats. This disease is most commonly transferred through deep bite wounds. The disease does not change the quality of life of a kitty.
If you are unable to keep a cat that you have adopted from HKKR, you can contact us to return to the kitty to the rescue. We have a strict do not re-home policy in place. It does not matter how long ago the kitty was adopted, we will always take them back.
