Tight collars On Kittens ?
It is a normal procedure to put a collar on a new pet when we bring them home. We certainly don't want them to wander away and come to harm.
I am talking about cats mainly. My dogs, I have them all tattooed and chipped as well as an address on the collar,just to make sure.
Cats are a little different as we tend to give them more freedom than our dogs.
If our tiny kitten has a collar on we have it around us until it becomes mature and confident.
I read a while back about two little girls who found a kitten and they adopted it ,they thought it a good idea to put a collar around its neck.
It turned out it was a ferrel,their parents quickly put a stop to the adoption idea but it was months later that the poor cat was found with the most dreadful neck growth where the neck had grown over the collar,terrible.
there was a happy ending ,it was placed in an animal sanctuary and recovered completely....no collars on kittens ,maybe.
