PSA: Put the Collar on Your Pet Cat

More than seven million pets are lost in the United States each year, and less than 5% of lost cats return home. When a pet kitten gets too curious and jumps out, a collar may be the only thing that can help him get home.

Most street cats know the way around the neighborhood and don’t need collars, so when people see them sneaking around they don’t report it because they think it’s just a street cat. The problem is, people assume the same thing about your lost domestic cat if it doesn’t have any markings on it. That’s why the team behind the Exploding Kittens card game launched the Kitty Convict Project . They hope to keep domestic cats safe by convincing their owners to wear orange collars. Why an orange? Because cats are better at hiding than larger pets like dogs. Bright colors are reflective and easier to spot when hiding in fear. Your kitten will probably not like their collar at first, but both of you will be grateful when it saves their lives. You can find out more at the link below.
