This cartoon by Paul Thomas from the Daily Express relates to news that every dog owner in England will have to microchip their animal from 2016 under plans intended to cut a rise in strays (a pet that is lost or has left its home).

The cartoon shows a pair of cats sitting in a tree in a park. One of them has some sort of electronic device which it is using to interfere with the dogs' microchips, sending them flying up in the air. The dogs look startled, and their owners surprised.
The dogs have leads around their necks.
