I belled the cat today. Came across a free collar I'd received years ago for her. I remember putting it on her then but had removed it - couldn't remember why. So I snapped it back on her. It has a little bell and I kinda liked hearing her pat around the house. Maybe the original issue was the noise bothered her and now that she is deaf there's no longer a problem. She begged to go outside in the afternoon. I checked on her after a couple of minutes and saw her stumbling around the yard. She had managed somehow to get one front leg hung up in her new collar. Now I remember - she had done the same thing the last time I'd put it on her. Threw the collar away.
