Scottish Wildcats microchipped with Trovan microchips

Scottish Wildcats and trovan

We are really pleased to be able to sponsor the Scottish Wildcat project currently underway in Scotland. Scottish Natural Heritage are involved in trapping and identifying the cats. They are taking DNA samples to establish 'purity' as crossing with domestic cats is a real issue and dilution of the gene pool is already happening. Trovan chips will enable them to identify cats which have been sampled already and can identify which cats have been assessed as 'pure'.

We will post more information and hopefully pictures as we have it. Meanwhile they have a website where you can learn more, meet the team, sign up for a Newsletter about the work.
