OWNER PREVENTED FROM FINDING CAT UNDER DATA PROTECTION ACT

A mother has spoken of her outrage after discovering her missing cat had been stolen - only to be told she cannot have its location due to the Data Protection Act. Karen Young, 41, had her seven -year -old Bengal cat, Tigger microchipped when she first purchased him for £800 back in 2009. The rare cat went missing in 2012, but three weeks ago, Karen, who works in the beauty industry, received a letter in the post from Petlog, the microchip company, requesting a change in ownership. Initially ecstatic to discover her beloved family pet was still alive, Karen assumed she would automatically be reunited with Tigger. Despite having proof of ownership paperwork, including the pedigree certificate and receipt of purchase, Petlog have refused to hand over details of the people who currently hold her cat and she is now battling to get him back. She has since reported the theft to the police and now questions the validity of microchipping pets altogether.
