    This was so helpful. Mine seems to be doing fine after about only 3 minutes of crazily trying to bite at it unsuccessful. She doesn’t seem to pay it any mind so far. If she continues to be this accepting I’ll keep it because I feel so bad for these innocent creatures outside.

      Thank you so much, Gemma! We really appreciate your feedback. Yoda always tries to chew his collar or bow tie off at the start too, but then he gets used to it pretty quickly, just like your kitty seems to be doing! 🙂

    I have a neighbor that lets her cat outside, who has a bell on his collar. We live in the woods and the nights are very quiet. I actually removed the bell from his collar as in my opinion, it would only attract potential predators while he’s walking through the woods at night.

      Hi Mels!
      Thanks for your message! Does the neighbor know you removed the bell from her cat’s collar? Though there are both pros and cons with collars and bells, the ultimate choice to have a bell on a cat’s collar is up to the owner. We understand your point of view, and we would recommend taking your concerns up with the neighbor to see what she has to say! Otherwise she’s going to be wondering what happened to the bell on the collar, right? 😉

    I agree with everything you have said. Well thought out and useful. I think a cat under a lot of supervision… mostly indoor cats sometimes outside cats benefit from them. I think putting bells on feral outdoor only cats is dangerous for them… and would make it hard to check up on them daily. I find the sound charming… and am beside myself about my adopted cat attacking birds and squirrels… for sport and food. The last terrorized squirrel I took over to an animal lover’s house for R and R, was the last straw. The Liberty Bell goes on his neck today! Still looking for a giant bell with a crack in it. LOL

    We just moved apartments and in the past my cat has hated collars but now that he has so kuch space hes hard to find! Definitely helped me feel better about putting a bell on the crazy boy. Funny enough his name is also Yoda!

    I have had cats all my life, and cannot imagine putting a collar or a collar with a bell on it, how sad for the cat to have to listen to the constants of a bell in its ears, try wearing a bell on your necklace and see how insane it will drive you, just saying!

    • Yep, as we mentioned there are both pros and cons to putting a bell on a cat’s collar! Luckily though, most bells don’t jingle until a cat jumps or pounces, hence the idea to add one to protect local wildlife (in case of an outdoor cat). Our Yoda doesn’t wear a collar except for his Seresto collar! But he’s a spoiled indoor cat so no catching birdies for him haha!
