Bells on Cats Collars

I tried scanning through to see if this was brought up, but I didn't see it.

Anyways, whats your thoughts on cat collars with bells? i never thought about it until my sister told me she doesn't do it because she feels its not fair to the cat to be jingling all the time. My cat away from home has had a bell collar just about all her life, and she seems to be fine. But with the new kitty, I was thinking, should I clip the bell off, or leave it on?
Thoughts, comments, suggestions?
Thanks!

I don't think there's anything wrong with them. Sebastian had one for a long time, no problem.

agreed. just wanted some outside perspective. i'm guessing if the cat really had a problem with it, he/she'd be trying to get it off.
thanks

Re: Bells on Cats Collars

Is the new kitty an inside or outside kitty? Inside, I would take it off because it would bug ME.

lol true. she is an indoor kitty. i guess we'll try the bell, and if it annoys ANY one of us, we'll just sip it off.

Re: Bells on Cats Collars

Personally, all my cats have bells.

To be honest though that's so they can't sneak up on each other (Jitzu in particular hates being stalked). However I find it's useful too. That way they can't sneak up on me, or daddy, and we know where they are. It makes finding kittens who like to hide much easier.

Also...it sounds a little mean, but I love watching them when I first put it on. They have no idea where the sound is coming from, and they try chasing themselves. It's so funny! I'd think it was awful except they actually seem to have fun doing it. And they get used to having the bell very quickly.

Jitzu can jump without ringing hers. But she's not your average kitty, lol.

I don't mind the sound of the bells. Our dogs have their rabies and ID tags on, so they jingle a lot.
The bells on the cats just makes it easier for me to find the darlings when they are hiding.

Blueberry has a bell, and I'm used to it. It is his "trademark."

Off topic, I know, I know, but Blueberry is such a sweet name
