Cat collar dilemma; LETTER FROM THE PAST.

IN reply to 'DAH' of Hall Green, I will explain the predicament of a cat owner and lover.

I have never been without a cat over the past 30 years and until recently they always wore collars.

Cat number one lived to be 19 with no trouble. The second got lost as a kitten and, thanks to a collar, was safely returned. However, at the age of 11 she fell out of a tree and got the collar tied round her neck and legs. Cats three and four are still young. One has three times got into difficulties with his collar, and luckily each time I was there to help.

An active cat can easily hang itself even with an elastic collar. One has to take the dreadful decision as to which is the worst evil, a collar, or a stray or injured, unidentified pet. BM, Moseley Evening Mail, November 3, 1976
