    Why Use a Cat Collar

     

    • Safety is a very good reason to use cat collars, especially for cats that spend a lot of time outdoors. A cat collar that is reflective can show up in a car’s headlights and mean that your cat could be less likely to get run over. Similarly, cats love to get into places that could be dangerous and cat collars that have a bell on can alert people to your cat’s presence. Cat’s collars that have bells on also reduce the chance of the cat catching birds or rodents.

     

    • A cat collar, especially on a new cat who will try to hide can make it easier to find him. A bell on the cat collar will help you locate the cat if he is nearby and you can also add a tag with your name and contact information on it in case the cat is found. Microchips can also be added to pet collars.

     

    • Although rare, some people like to take their cat out for a walk with them and you can use a lead to attach to the cat’s collars and stop the cat running after any bird or rodent while you are out walking. Walking a cat is not the same as walking a dog though; you can’t pull on the lead too hard because the cat’s collar will cause an injury.

     

    • Some cat collars have anti-flea medication in them and these cat collars are very effective for several months at a time. The cat’s collar will help to keep the cat healthy and these sorts of cat collars are usually very cheap. Before you use this type of cat collar however you should talk to your vet.

     

    • Show cats will often have cat collars that stand out or complement the colour of their natural markings. These sorts of cat collars can be bought from specialist shops.
