    Novel idea, Lummy. Shame no one has thought of that before now. Hope you make a lot of money on that idea.

    It's not novel but it is a good idea. Next time I'm in PetSmart, I'll check to see if they sell them.

    Mine is an indoor cat, so she doesn't need a collar.

    Newp. Why would I? We assume bell collars work, that outdoor and feral cats preying on birds is a problem, that these collar alarms are not common, and that they might be very well received by animal lovers.

    Where am I messing with you? I haven't yet looked on the web to see what's out there or researched it at all, however.

    Cat bells create their own problems.

    I had a gray tabby in law school and gave him to my mom so he would have more room, other animals. And the swamp across the street. Most days he would head into the swamp and come back hours later with small critters and often scratch marks on him. Some serious enough for a vet visit. He was a bad ass cat.

    Let the cat eat. There is still something to be said for a good mouser.

    One poster recommends them for children. Whatever happened to just plain old watching your kids?
