In case I get stolen, I also have a secret that I will only tell my blog friends - I have a micro chip that mum got the vet to put in me when I was really little. If I get stolen or lost, the vets or SPCA will barcode me and find out where my real mummy is. A microchip is small like a grain of rice and it sits under the skin behind my shoulders. My mum held me while the vet put in in, and I didn't even squirm!! It didn't hurt and makes my mum feel that I am a bit safer.
Me and my collar!!
Mum asked her friend for advice on how to get a kitten used to a collar. She said to start when little with just putting it on for an hour a day. Then after a week put it on your kitten during the day and take it off at night. Now I wear mine all the time and I don't notice it!! It is much harder to train an older cat.
Mum says that the most important thing ever in choosing a cat collar is to make sure you buy one with a breakaway snap on it, not one with a buckle. Otherwise we can get caught in trees and bushes and not get loose. These collars here show what a breakaway collar looks like.
