ID them, please!

In the weeks while I was writing this book, I was bitten by a cat and, luckily for me, the cat was wearing a collar and ID tag with the owner’s phone number, so I was able to contact the owner and determine whether the cat had had a rabies vaccine. This is only one of several reasons for your cat to wear an ID tag, but the most obvious reason is that if your cat wanders off too far or is injured or, heaven forbid, ends up in an animal shelter, someone will be able to contact you.

Collars cost very little; ditto for a small metal tag with the cat’s name (or yours) and your telephone number. The great thing about a collar, even if the ID tag has come loose, is that it tells someone who finds your cat that she is not a stray and probably has an owner who is looking for her.
