feline resistance to collars


  • Even if your cat, including your indoor-only cat, is microchipped, she still needs a collar with ID to give her the best chance of being returned to you in the event she’s lost
  • If you’re concerned your feline family member won’t wear a collar, a 2010 study showed that almost 75% of cats wore their collars for a minimum of six months; over half the cat owners said their kitties tolerated the collars better than expected
  • Even indoor-only cats sometimes get outside, including very old and very timid kitties, which is why it’s important they wear a collar and ID as well
  • It’s important to give your cat time to get used to wearing a collar, so consider picking a weekend or another two to three day stretch you can dedicate to your cat collar project
