Microchipping/Genetic Tests

 

At the February 2013 Council Meeting delegates voted to mandate the requirement for microchipping of cats that require testing to comply with their registration policy. Rule Section 1: 10c: was amended as follows:

 

If the cat or kitten is sold with a certificate to validate any genetic/veterinary test, it must be microchipped and the chip number must be on the test certificate, the accompanying vaccination record card and the veterinary practice record.
