The bells are so very small they don't tinkle (rather, they thunk if I shake them next to my ear) but it's enough to alert most of the birds and mice and the bells don't irritate her with the constant tinkling. I have two such collars and change them occasionally to repair the bells and wash them.

I searched high and low for several months online for a cat collar with bells on them (mine have ten 10 bells surrounding the collar) and only found collars with one dangly bell which, in my opinion, can get caught on something and trap the cat.

Over this weekend I have had to rescue 2 desperate mice brought into the house and kept alive as toys. One of them was so terrified it was screaming and shaking. Fortunately I put the poor things safely outside. I can accept my cat killing them quickly but I don't want them to suffer like that.

I am going to compromise and do what you suggested. I want my cat to be able to hunt but I also want to give the poor mice (who are not bothering me) a chance to escape.

My huntress cat like to play and torture. The collars were my compromise. It took planning, buying the supplies online, waiting for everything to arrive and sewing on the bells, but well worth the time and effort. She is not bothered by her collars and I don't have to watch her torture innocent wildlife (very often).

It would be a different story if she ate them, but she doesn't.

That's cats for you lol. I was surprised when my little Alice killed a mouse. She's a small cat and I didn't think she could kill anything. She did though and she didn't eat it either.

I'm surprised your cat doesn't mind her collar. Usually, cats don't like them. I had to knit Alice a collar because she wouldn't stop hurting herself by scratching her neck. The sores needed to heal and she just wouldn't let them. We ended up having to bring her to the Vet.

It's been about three days since I put bells on Dazzles collar, and she hasn't returned with any gifts. That maybe helping. However it wouldn't surprise me if she's keeping them in her secret layer since I was getting upset when she brought them in the house. She's a very perceptive cat.

On a side note. She doesn't seem to mind the collar but I take it off when she's indoors. There's no reason it must be on 24x7.

My experience with Cami, my huntress, is the collar works most of the time. And she insists upon bringing them in the house, whether they have feathers or fur or scales. That way they can't get away. That's her logic.

Cami melts when I scratch under her collar but she doesn't dig at it herself. My other cat hated the collars so much she quit hunting.
