    Training Kittens to Wear Cat Collars

    Articlegeneral cat adviceFriday 20 May 2011

    Training a cat to wear cat collars could be extremely helpful in certain situations. A kitten collar uses a tag with your details on it so that if the cat goes missing, the finder knows where it has come from. At the start some cats do not like wearing a pet collar. However, if trained in the right way, the cat collar will be accepted by your pet. See the following guide to kitten collar training for more advice.



    •    Firstly, it is very important that you buy cat collars that are the right size for your pet. Measure the cat’s neck and then buy a kitten collar that has a bit of extra room for growth and comfort.

    •    Buy a safety cat collar that is designed to break-away should the collar become caught on something. You will have the peace of mind that your pet has been able to escape if he gets stuck in a potentially dangerous situation.

    •    Before fitting the pet collar, ensure that your cat is not stressed and is in a calm mood. When the cat is happy, the job will be made much easier as he is less likely to resist.

    •    Place the cat collar on and leave it on. Some cats will naturally try to remove the collar as it is a foreign object to them. The majority of the time, the cat will resist for a while and then give up once they realise it is not harming them and there is not much they can do about it.

    •    However, if your cat is particularly panicky and looks like he will not give up resisting, you may have to remove it for a while. This might mean that you have to introduce it in short sessions at a time.

    •    For the first few days or weeks you could find that your cat has managed to remove cat collars. If this happens, find the pet collar and place it back on his neck. Do this until the cat finally accepts it on his body.
