Strange behavior...

The other day I saw a cute collar on clearance at petsmart- It was made of a softer, more fabric-like material. It had a leopard print design and a bell on it. It's no different than any of his other collars (Ok, so he has like 3 already, but we like to change fashions every couple of days ) so I don't get what the problem was. It started last night. I put the collar on him and then gave him some treats from the next pack I'd just purchased. Suddenly he jumped out his cat tree and hissed. A whole series of hisses followed that and then he went into "wild animal mode". He was growling quite eerily, staring with wide dilated pupils, and hissing and me and my boyfriend. I was quite worried about him, so I took the collar off (not yet realizing it was bothering him) and I left him alone for a bit. Within 30 min he'd fallen asleep, and when he woke up he was back to normal.

The next day I put the collar on him and the same thing happened. I took it off and let him sniff it, but he wanted nothing to do with that collar. So I put his old one back on and he calmed down a but but was still all tense and jumpy so I gave him some catnip to cheer him up. Then I took the collar home to my parents house and gave it to Lil'Fella, who wears it well with no problems.

So... what the heck? Did he not think the leopard print was fashionable? I just don't get what the problem was, and why it made him so scared!

Re: Strange behavior...

That's what I'm sort of thinking. It did look like it had been repackaged, and it had a hand-written UPC tag in place of the original. I wonder if there was a kitty smell on it that didn't fly with Nito. Lil'Fella had no problem with it, so at least I didn't waste my money.
