Default my cat keeps losing his collar!

Hi. My cat has now lost about 5 collars in the neighborhood. This doesn't
count those that neighbors have found and returned. Many of the times he's
come in without it, he's also been a bit muddy, so I suspect he's been
crawling under some brush that's snagged it.


It's expensive because we have a magnetic cat door, so each time we
replace
a collar, we also have to replace the magnet and his tag.

We've tried several different types of collars - break-away and stretchy.
Obviously we want to continue to use a safety collar, so that he CAN get
out of it in an emergency.

Does anyone have a particular type of collar to recommend?

I've also considered getting some kind of device which would track the
collar, like one of those key rings that beeps. Any suggestions there?


Boo ****ing hoo.
Keep your cat indoors. The money you've spent on collars and cat doors will
pale in comparison to what you spend to cure the illnesses he gets from
roaming.

The sad thing is, the bitch is not a troll. Just another shallow asshole who
sees cats as not worthy of good care.

A great stretchy collar that you can try is Beastie Bands. They
velcro together but are made of a stretchy material that you could
just slip over the cat's head if you wanted. They are very light
weight too. My cats wear them and don't seem to mind. Check them out
at catconnection.com. (That's where I bought mine from.)

Thanks. That's the first one he lost!

the beastie brand velcro collar looks great but the site is
impossible. YOu cant order one because it piles all these other
things on it. I give up. I wonder where else you can get those
collars.

I just wanted to say the beastie brand velcro collar is a perfect
collar. I was going on a 2 week vacation and Beebe was staying at the
house of a friend and I wanted him to have his identification lavalier
on just in case he slipped outside so I ordered the collar from the
cat connection. The problem was it didnt come in time. If you order
a collar, you must realize that the cat connection is in Texas and if
you dont pay for 1st class shipment, the collar is sent like a letter
and it takes a very long time to come to Philadelphia PA from Texas
indeed. I dont understand why the us mail is sooo slow. So I had to
use the same old elastic collar from Petsmart. Beebe is very has a
very puffy coat and the beastie brand collar with a velcro closing is
so much more comfortable for him. Its very worthwhile getting this
collar plus the collar is quite attractive. Anyhow he never wanted to
escape. Quite the contrary. Someone here once wrote about his cat
looking for the "door to springtime." Well, Beebe has been doing just
that.
