CiCi wont wear her collar!

So, I got a collar for my cat CiCi. She doesnt mind me putting it on, but has a fit once it is. Its one of those safety release collars. I try to distract her from it once it is on by playing with her and whatnot, but i look away for one minute and she is starting at me, and the collar is on the floor! I want to get her used to it because im going to get her a tag with her name and adress on it in case she ever gets out. What do I do?? Im new at this!

why don't u put a regular collar on her until she gives up trying to get it off then switch it for the release one and maybe she will not bother trying because she wont know its the release kind...
good luck

Leave it on her. It's not hurting!! lol When I put the harnesses on my mom's cat and sister's cat last year they both acted like they were dying in a pool of hot lava. Eventually they got the idea that their silly show was simply more amusing than anything else to us and that we weren't removing them.

goodness yes. I mean the safety release ones are good bc they break off but the chances of kitty actually hanging himself is so little. I never once heard of a case, it's just a risk bc cats like to climb. Both my mom and sister used regular collars and regular harnesses on their cats. But if you're getting the collar for a just-in-case she gets out reason I would reccommend having her micro-chipped. If in the unfortunate event she did get out and climbed a tree and she did get it caught (which I would assume wouldn't happen given that indoor cats usually hide under things and don't climb unless chased) then the collar would fall off and the cat would remain unidentifiable.

I tried to figure this out too. My cat wont wear his either! And I wanted to put the vaccinated metal thing on it and now I can't. He HATES it. He walks around the room trying non stop to get it off and he wont stop till he does. I just gave up there was no hope

If it's only for the id, cutestuff, then get him microchipped. And cats will get used to wearing a collar you just have to pretend you don't see (or are amused by) their dramatic antics.

There are instances too that new collar is not scenting good for cats at first.. sometimes it takes time for them to get used to it before never minding it on their neck..

Hm, flea collars should never go near a cat and reg new collars that they want to smell perhaps just put in their bed so they get used to it first.
