Cat collar with at least 2 bells.  If you must allow your cat outside, at least try to help protect Wild life.

Cats skillfully learn to move in silence with only 1 bell. If a cat has 2 bells, some small animals and wildlife may have a slim chance against the fatal sporting habits of cats. All cats are natural born hunters. In this day and age domestic cats don’t need to hunt for food; however they still hunt wildlife and defenceless baby birds still in the nest for sport. Please keep your cat indoors especially at night, this is what cats often do most of the night, hunt for sport, look for a mating partner if not sterilised and offend neighbors property while marking out their assumed territories! Please be considerate to all around you and keep your lovable feline friend protected and out of trouble indoors.
