Should I Put a Bell on My Cat Collar?
3 CommentsFriday, 11 April 2014 | kelly
There's been quite a bit of discussion around using bells on cats collars to help deter them from catching birds and many would endorse this view that they do help to protect our wildlife and so we should use them.
However, not everyone would agree with this commonly held view in the UK.
A comment I had once from a customer in France illustrates cultural differences which exist across Europe. He emailed me to thank me for the very fine collar but said that he had had to remove the bell because it stopped his cat from hunting effectively.
So it was very interesting for me today to receive this from a customer in Austria
Actually, do you have regular feedback about bells? I bought some (and
My daughter likes to have a bell on her cat so that she can hear where he is and what he is getting up to around the house and I have heard this from other cat owners.
So, to bell or not to bell, that is the question
We'd love to hear your views on this
