My last blog post was a desperate story. I got the feliway calming clollar that I mentioned and intented to report to you on how it worked out on my cat. I’d say it was a major failure because the fermone made no difference to his mood to begin with, then on the 4th day the rubber-textured collar got caught in his jaw.. BIG TIME!
One morning my dad woke me up at 6:45AM and we both tried really hard to unbucle the feliwat collar to get it off Simon’s jaw. It was impossible because Simon struggles so much and fights whoever that touch his jaw. I bet it hurts when we try to pull the collar off. Even if the collar is supposed to be a breakaway design, the rubber material makes it impossible to come off when stretched. With me × dad × cat in panic mode, I ran for a pair of scissors in the kitchen and cut the collar off. That was the end of the SENTRY feliway collar.
Normally, Simon cat never wears a collar at home.
I used to be attracted to the idea of getting my cat to wear the cutest collar on earth, but after actually buying few collars, including: one made of organic soy-based fabric, another from the local dollarstore etc.. At home, we are still more found of his natural look rather than with a collar. However, when simon is independent enough for going outdoors in his own terms, I will need to find him a cool collar to carry a tag. (I am fantasizing for a manly one with reflectors to balance out his girly look & have good night visibility for us humans 😉)
