How do I keep Callie from doing this???

She had three collars, all three are the ones which snap apart if she were to ever get hung up on something...which is what kind youre supposed to put on a cat right? Well she just takes them right off!!!! I dont have a clue how she does it but BUT every single time I put one on her within an hour or two shes collarless...EVERYTIME!!!! In the near future we are going to get her microchipped but for now we cant do that...is there another type of collar that is harder for the cat to take off that ive just not seen yet? Thanks yall...all suggestions are welcome lol

I found a different kind of safety collar at PetSmart. It has a normal buckle instead of of the snap kind. Elsewhere on the collar, there's a weak point that's just two strings of thin elastic, which doesn't show unless you stretch the collar. But if caught on something, the elastic will break and the collar will fall off.

Maybe that would work better, since she wouldn't be able to unsnap it? The downside is that it's stretchy enough for an industrious cat to slide off. But maybe it will stymie her for awhile. Good luck!

Also, keep a look out if the SPCA by you has a clinic. We just went on Saturday to a rabies & microchip clinic and Kringle got a microchip for $25.
