Our cat, Belle, is a great hunter. At first, we celebrated her prowess and were tolerant of her supplementing her diet with mice, gophers and rats. However, when she started bringing home hummingbirds, we had a problem. She liked to bring the hapless beauties into the house and let them fly around for sport. Once caught, feathers, poo and body parts were scattered throughout our home. My husband found the collar online and we gave it a try. She seemed to tolerate it okay and true t advertising, it seemed to give the birds enough warning that our peaceful home was restored.
Belle is an unusually well behaved cat. She naturally knows that she is welcome on the floor, her cat perch, our laps and the bed. One day, we noticed the collar needed a bit of cleaning, so we popped it in the wash and left it on the counter to dry. Later in the day, Belle found the collar and brought it to where I was sitting and mewed . Though we never saw her in the counter before, she had retrieved the collar from the counter and brought it to me. It really seems she wanted me to put it on. Since then, it happens every time we remove the collar and leave it on the counter. It seems Belle not only tolerates the collar, but loves it!
