60% of cats will wear collars - other 40% think they're nerds

the recent meme making the news outlets is that cats should wear collars to increase their chances of being reunited with their owners should they be lost.

well, yeah,we think cats should have identification, too.  (most humane societies are anything but humane.)  collars are useful and super-duper cool looking, and if your cat likes em that's great, but we've all known houdini-cats who can slip out of anything in the blink of an eye.  so what about them?

microchipping is the only sure way of identifying that your cat is yours.  get chipped.  it's worth it.  (dane county humane society takes walk-ins during normal biz hours.)
