Why Should My Cat Wear a Collar?

Whether you’re a first-time cat owner or have been one for years, there’s usually a common debate you’ll have to take part in: will your cat wear a collar or not? For most cat owners, their little buddy does indeed wear the “statement piece,” but some feline parents opt not to give them a collar. So, if you need a little help deciding whether or not your cat will wear one, here are some things to consider.

Outdoor Adventures

Whether your cat prefers the outdoors or they happen to escape when the front door is opened, a collar will be a huge benefit. Typically, most non-cat-owning homeowners are under the impression that any cat outside is a stray — but that’s not always the case. A collar will not only help them distinguish the difference, but if your feline friend is lost and doesn’t generally go outside, then a collar can be of great help to bring them home.

Creates Awareness

Sometimes, your cat can wander around your home in complete silence. While this is great for your feline, it might be scary for you — especially if you can’t seem to find them. A collar will be the perfect fit since it will make a little bit of noise, giving you an idea of where you might happen to find your feline friend in your house.

If you’re looking to take things up a notch, you can add a tiny little collar bell that will jingle every time your cat wanders around. This will make it a breeze to find them during the greatest game of hide-and-go-seek!

Final Thoughts

Ultimately, when it comes to your pet wearing a collar, the decision is up to you. There isn’t a right or wrong answer. As long as your feline friend is happy and well taken care of, then that’s all that matters!
