Re: Should my indoor cat wear a collar & I.D. tag?
My son's cat has collar and tags even though she is strictly indoors only. He rescued her from a parking lot, poor thing.
My two cats and my daughter's cat are chipped and wear collars, no tags. It is very common for cats to be chipped here - the vets, emergency vets and animal control all have chip readers. We can take a cat and have the chip checked at any time for free.
My two cats had a small bell on their collar so I can find them easily. After I gave the girls a bath last weekend, for fleas - uggh, I left their collars off for a few hours. When they were dry, I shook their collars and they came running. I'm not sure if they thought it was an emergency (bells going crazy) or another cat. The girls just sit still while I put their collars on.
My daughter's cat, Harper, used to sit up like a squirrel and try to play with the bell on her collar. It was cute.
