We bought the quick release ones as we believe they are safer but this is getting ridiculous. He has a magnet on the collar so only he (and his co-living cat) can get into our house. The collar he has just lost was on him for less than 2 hours. We believe he must be getting them off on purpose as opposed to getting stick somewhere and wriggling free.
He is chipped so the collar was only a way of giving him a door key. No door key no coming in or we change the cat flap and run the risk other the neighbour's bullying cats can come in.
Any other collars worth trying?
Anyone want to buy an expensive furry toy?
BTW I have asked him where his collars are but he won't tell me.
I caught one of my cats taking off her collar - she looked like houdini and has lost several since we started using them. I like the idea of a microchip flap! We moved into a house with a magnetic cat flap but use it as a regular one - will other cats definitely come into yours if they could?
One of mine goes next door for an extra meal and next doors cat come's here for an extra meal despite both being well fed in our respective homes. But neither I or next door have a cat flap. Have found quite a few random cats in my house over the years as we have our back door open most of the time (weather permitting)
With a non secure cat flap, cats see It as an open invitation but don't thank you on the way out!!!!
I know it happens but have no idea how much it happens - it hasn't happened to us yet but we've only had a cat flap for 3 months! I'm pretty sure our cats haven't been though other cat flaps though, although obviously I have no idea what they're up to when they go out.
I have a feeling one of my girls has been in the house next door but they don't have pets so am pretty sure they don't have a cat flap. I've only seen one come through our garden so looks like I'm lucky (so far).
Next door says they keep finding Mooncat asleep on their beds. She won't even jump on ours! But they like having their back door open. We've a Sureflap. Works a treat. We were actually told to get one by the door company when we asked them to put in a catflap when they were replacing the old door. We had no cat at the time!
