PostSubject: Cats & quick release collars.   Wed 04 Feb 2015, 3:04 pm

Chilli has lost her beautiful purple kitten collar, matching bell & tag 3 times now already!!! Both 1st 2 times I found it but yesterday... she was gone for many, many hrs, obviously having a ball climbing, jumping & getting into every nook & cranny. (She normally goes in & out constantly following the dogs. Out for a play, in for a rest, out for a run, in for a nap.) When she finally got home, NO COLLAR!:impatient:

I stupidly did a yard search which I knew was in vain. But i looked anyway. I cant find it. So she is housebound now till I recieve 4 new collars, bells & id tags. She is not happy as she runs up & over everything & one in the house, screaming as if I just sawed her foot off. :lol:

She is microchipped, & I have a lovely purple leopard print adult collar & bell but, it's just slightly too big for her yet & I don't like her out without id on her.

Stupid quick release collars are going to cost me a fortune to keep replacing.
Maybe I'll just keep her inside till she is old, lazy & chilled out so she doesn't want to run & play anymore.

Why are you so keen for her to wear a collar hun?

My cat has lost numerous collars so I gave up, however I caught him in the act and found he was removing them himself. He would manage to get the collar in his mouth and pull until it came off

He is chipped also but to be honest since moving in with us (and being castrated) he barely leaves the house

Chilli is spayed. We have dogs on all but oneside, the only fence she now climbs & I'm sure goes over now.

I like a collar because most people will call a number but many are too lazy to take a found animal (cat or dog) to a vet to check a microchip.

Ah right I see. I must admit I do like mine to have a collar on with ID tag for that reason, one of my cats got run over and as she was tagged they put her in a box and put a letter through our door to notify us

If cats get run over here and the council collect them they don't scan them so owners are not notified

Thats terrible! & you know, I dont know if we are notified or not here if an animal is found run over?

But, I'm going to find out the answer now. Something I've not thought of before.

I've made a couple of calls to find out what happens here.
