A microchip is a key form of identification to help prevent your cat from being permanently lost. There is nothing scary about the microchip itself but a cat without a microchip is a frightening thought.
For the first time in my life, I recognized the land that was the cover story in our local newspaper. Sadly, not in a good way. There are power lines that course through our property on the way to a town that sits about 1000 feet higher than we are in the Sierra foothills. Above ground power lines are everywhere and connect us to the grid so we can refrigerate food, live in a comfortable temperature, cook, etc. as anyone still connected will testify.
