Kimberley Earnshaw started this petition to Kirklees Council

I would like to make it compulsory for all councils in the UK to scan every deceased cat for a microchip.

My beautiful boy Coco was sadly involved in a RTA (road traffic accident) in July 2020. Kirklees Council were the first to find Coco, he was not scanned for a microchip and instead he was discarded in to landfill without a second thought for the owners. 

This has caused great distress for myself and my two daughters. We searched endlessly for a week looking for Coco, spreading the word on social media and putting up posters in the local area. A lovely lady came forward after seeing the posters and said she had witnessed Kirklees Council remove a cat just like Coco from an area very close to my home. The Council worker took a photo of the cat and then discarded his body in the back of the van with the rubbish. 

Upon contacting Kirklees Council they have no log of Coco being found.  Coco was a much loved member of our family and is missed beyond words everyday. If the Council had scanned Coco they would have been able to contact myself and I would of collected him and taken him to the vets for cremating. 

This is a cruel and needless act from the Council, leaving owners forever searching for their pets and with no closure. Please help by signing this petition to change the law to make it compulsory for all councils to scan all deceased cats (as they already do with dogs) owners can then be informed, collect their pets if they wish and have closure. 

Thankyou for your help

Kim
