Unless I need to corral my cats for some reason, such as an evacuation, that will probably continue to be the only reason that I use them.
I go through collars like that with Mamou. Being an outdoor cat, he needs a collar. I especially want him to have it in the spring, when he can sneak up on baby birds. But, he manages to lose them regularly, so I replace them regularly.
