Agreed, there are just as many things INSIDE the house he can get snaggd on as outside.
Elastic will never happen here again. I had an elastic collar when I first adopted MowMow. I thought they were perfect for him, he could just slip out of it. No.
I've always kept his nails trimmed but somehow he got his back claw hooked in the elastic and it would up somehow twisting around his foot. I presume while he was trying to get his claw free. He was panting for breath and his foot was cold when I got home from work. I cut it off and LUCKILY it all worked out okay. It must not have cut off circulation long but he could have choked himself AND lost his back foot.
Breakaway buckles here. I'd rather them lose the collar than get hurt.
Also, there is ALWAYS a chance they can somehow one day get out. A door is left open a second too long... a screen falls out a window... a guest leaves and no one notices the cat slip out until it's too late... Never say never with cats. Just because a cat has never door dashed before does NOT mean they'll 'never' try it.
