Does My British Shorthair Cat Need a Collar?

does-my-british-shorthair-cat-need-a-collarIf you own a cat like the British Shorthair then you may be wondering if a collar is necessary. Some veterinarians will agree that your cat should probably wear a collar whether he lives inside our out.  One of the primary reasons for a cat to wear a collar is for identification purposes. When shopping for a collar, it’s important to know the differences between a cat collar and a dog collar. Unlike dogs, cats tend to move around in tight spaces and climb things like trees and fences. Most cat collars are designed with a break-away clasp or a stretchy material that allows the cat to get out of the collar if he gets stuck. Keep in mind your cat’s environment when picking out a collar as well. If your cat spends most of his time outdoors, buying a shiny jeweled collar may not be a good idea.
