When I found Reese back in July, one of the reasons why we thought that she may have been someone's pet was that she never protested a collar. Every other kitten that I've ever encountered had to get used to it first. They flipped and flopped and tried to lick it off. Not Reese. She didn't even notice that it was there. We figured she must have worn one at some point. She's always been excellent about wearing her collar. Which is so odd, because this past week she just wants it OFF! She gets her teeth under it and chews on the buckle until it comes off. I can keep it on her for a while, but the next thing I know I'm hearing that plastic creaking under her teeth again. It's a breakaway of course, so I'm not too worried about her getting her jaw caught in it or anything, but I don't understand why she has suddenly decided to reject the collar that she's worn for five months?! The collar is a bit worn out because it was cheaply made (just something I picked up from the local grocery store one day) and it's NOT too tight. In our neighborhood we leave doors unlocked. If a pet gets out, a total stranger will come and put your pet back in for you if you're not home. It's just common courtesy where we live. It's very nice, but they need the address on the tag to do so. It's a lot faster than taking them to the vet to get their chip scanned! I've been waiting for a new custom made collar and tag to come in the mail recently and I don't want her chewing it up or feeling uncomfortable. Little diva.
