We found a dead cat outside our house (UK)?

Okee, we found a cat by the side of the road but when we found it it was still warm and not stiff. My mum was sure she felt a pulse so we brought it inside since there are stray dogs etc round here that could grab it. Anyway, my mum tried the RSPCA but they were no good, then she tried a local vet who told us how to ensure it was dead and then advised us to take it in to the vets. Problem is, my dad thinks it will cost us……. It won’t cost us a penny will it? It has a collar on so it has an owner and just needs to be scanned for a microchip but since it isn’t even out cat we won’t be charged will we?

Please answer ASAP! We need to get the cat to a vet so they can tell its poor owner it has died.
foxylady: The cat is already dead and we tried the RSPCA who weren’t much help at all.
Thanks guys, we managed to call Cats Protection and we will be taking it to the vets tomorrow since they are closed now!

    I would double check with a phone call to the vet you are taking it to. They SHOULDN’T charge you, but vets are as individual as we all are, and some nickel and dime the public pretty darn bad. A quick phone call to that specific vet will answer your question.

    It shouldn’t cost you anything. I would take it in. If it has pasted I wouldn’t thing they would charge you to scan a dead animal for a microchip.

    dont you have a animal shelter where you live, call the humane society and tell them you found this cat and what you should do or where to take him. They will take care of the poor kitty and no they dont charge you if you found him. Please call them a.s.a.p so the kitty doesn’t suffer.

    Most god vet won’t charge as it is not you pet and you would be doing a wonderful thing as you say it may be mircochipped so they can find the owners and let them know.

    I don’t believe the vet should charge you just to find a dead cat’s owners. I know in my area they don’t, but I don’t know if that is the same everywhere. It just doesn’t make sense to charge someone for an animal that is dead. Just call them and find out for sure, or if they tell you that there is a charge ask why and be adament that the cat is dead and they shouldn’t be charging you. Good luck! PS you sound like you are a very good person to be going through all this to find the owner. Thank you, the world needs more people like you!

    I thought the UK was a safe haven for cats?? Every body from the UK are always saying it’s perfectly safe for outdoor cats!

    To answer the question, you shouldn’t be charged as the poor cat has an owner:(

    You can take it to the vet, and it may be chipped and they will be able to locate owners and no you wont be charged if it is proven its not yours!
