My cats never used to wear collars, cos i take on oldies and didnt think it was fair to try and put one on at their time of life. My second cat came from a shelter and had a collar, so when she lost it it was replaced (although i had to take the bell off cos it drove her mad). sometime last year i was debating getting flea collars for mine, as i was having issues with them since getting a new cat, so got some cheap ones to try them with, seeing as i had a 13 and 14 year old, i wasnt sure of the reaction. They took to them no problem, i took the bell of Snowy's collar without thinking, but then thought i would try Ginger with it to see how he went on, and he didnt mind. Seeing as he is a 12lb cat that can sneak in and out of houses, i thought him having a bell would be a good idea!! Pebbles has one even though she doesnt leave the house and i left the bell on her, so i always know when she is coming down, and i can normally hear Ginger approach the house. I did put one on Blackie but then when it became apparent she wasnt even going to try and leave the bathroom unless the house was in darkness and i was in bed i didnt see the point. This past two weeks i have had to get tags for the collars as Ginger has been found in stranger's houses!!
