Early in the hurricane season the US's Northeast Atlantic coastline had a hurricane (Earl) barreling up the coastline heading for Maine. As part of our emergency evacuation plan (should we need one) we bought collars and ID tubes for all the cats.
BJ is quite accustomed to wearing a collar since he used to be an indoor/outdoor kitty. I think this blue collar looks dashing on him.
Own got this red studded one. He was the only kitty who didn't care for the necklace, but he seemed settled in after a time.
Penny's yellow collar is a little big but it does have sparkles.
I couldn't picture Yukon in anything but black. You can see the ID tube hanging next to the bell. Oh, yes, all the collars had a bell too.
Mr Jingle Bells got a brand new pink collar. But he gave up one of his three bells to give to Penny.
I just love Snafu in pink (Hey, he pees on my carpets and bites my hand, I can put a pink collar on him if I want to).
Wizard already had his green collar and an engraved ID tag, because of his bad habit of dashing out an open door. I just snagged him off the back deck steps this evening. He didn't even make it onto the grass.
I never got good pictures of Nick and Angus in their blue and white collars, but they looked very handsome.
The main purpose of the collar was to have an ID Tube (the orange bullet looking thing). It had a tiny bit of paper rolled up inside it with our names, full address and all our cell phones numbers.
But the bottom part of the bullet kept coming undone, losing the paper, and so the whole ID Tube idea was fruitless. We ditched it and brought the remains of the tubes back to the store. We plan to get old fashioned engraved ID tags for everyone like Wizard's.
Except for Snafu's and Wizards, we took the collars off after Earl passed by...
We got this emailed picture summing up the total devastation Hurricane Earl brought to Maine:
