So, I was on facebook and saw this image and wondering if its real or not.(google translator):

Collar with a bell? Better not use!

Your kitten has rattle on a leash? Due to the sensitive hearing, it can be stressed with the constant noise. We will help you to live safe and comfortable? Get rid of the bell!

If you don't know what the "bell" search on google the word "guizo".

And my question is, is it true it harm the cats using this kind of item? I have on my cats so I can keep knowing where they are.

  • I seriously doubt that this is actually a Whiskas ad. It looks much more like someone stealing their logo for use in a meme, to try to make it appear more legitimate – keshlam Nov 19 '16 at 21:40

No, a cat won't be stressed with a bell. However that being said if your cat is outdoors I wouldn't put one on mostly because if it's trying to hide from a predator it will be much more difficult. On the bright side your cat won't be killing our wildlife either (point is keep kitties indoors or in an outdoor cat pen where they cannot harm or be harmed).

If you're worried about your cat escaping and getting lost, microchip! Kitties can become snagged in things if they have a collar on, if they have the quick release well then a tag would be useless as it could be lost.

    A cat may be annoyed by a bell that interferes with its hunting... Though many cats learn how to hunt despite the bell. Personally, I would say that if you can't accept that your cat wants to hunt, you might not want to let it outside -- cats can live long, happy, and healthy lives without the risks of leaving the house. – keshlam Oct 21 '16 at 1:20
