Cat owners can have their pets micro-chipped for free at a North Walsham vets during April.

The RSPCA's East Norfolk branch is sponsoring the campaign in a bid to make sure more cats can be identified if they go missing or are involved in accidents.

The quick procedure involves implanting a micro-chip, the size of a grain of rice, under the skin between the cat's shoulders. The chip bears a number, and the animal and its owner's details are then registered under that number.

Cats must be at least six weeks old to qualify for micro-chipping.

Anyone interest should book an appointment with the Toll Barn vets, on Heath Road, telephone 01692 407126.
