Default Hey that's mine!

Dreary day here in SW OK, cloudy and rain off and on all day. A little
while ago, during a brief break in the clouds, the sun came out for a
few minutes. Little Bit wanted to check and see if any of the
neighborhood cats on been around, so I decided I'd put on the girls
collars and let Sammy and LB out while I smoked a cig. LB and Sam only
wear their collars when I take them out. They come running when they
hear the tags jiggle, and wait patiently while I put them on.

I grabbed the collars off the hooks, and the girls came and stood by
the door. I bent down to put a collar on LB while she looked outside
and waited patiently. Sammy reached up and wrapped her paws around my
hand. I was about to put the blue collar on her mom. The look she gave
me obviously said that everyone knows momma wears the red one, the
blue belongs to Sammy.

I quickly realized my mistake, and put the collars on appropriate
necks, and we went outside. Unfortunately, a couple minutes later the
brief sunshine diasppeared and it started sprinkling again.

*Experts* insist that cats can't see in colour.

I know this to be false - Apache can identify the exact
shade of purple that her favourite cat treats box is,
and has been confused once or twice when I've bought
something else that was that shade.

I'd always heard this, too, and don't really believe it. In all
fairness, though, even if the collars were identical in color there
are a couple other small differences. Both collars have engraved name
tags with my phone number, and they're different shapes. (Luckily,
Sammy doesn't seem to realize that hers is shaped like a d*g bone, but
at the time that was the only blue tag to match the collar.) And,
Little Bit's is a little wider.
