Fact: Inside cats live longer, healthier lives. Cats raised indoors are perfectly content with their safer world. Any cat can get lost – even yours. YOUR cat needs a tag! Tag your cat even if it never goes outside!

One day your cat could slip through an open door and easily become lost. Don’t take a chance on losing your cat forever. Tag it with your name, address, and phone number.

The first time you put a collar on your cat, give it a catnip toy to distract attention from the new feeling of wearing a collar. Far more cats die because they get lost and their owners can’t find them, than ever get hurt from wearing a collar. Use a collar with a short piece of elastic sewn in which will stretch and let the cat escape if it gets hung up on a tree limb or fence.
