If you are not familiar with the card game “Exploding Kittens“, go check it out! The creators of this hilarious cat themed card game have started a campaign hoping to reach worldwide. It is a simple change that cat owners can do to ensure the safety of their cat in the event it gets outside or lost. So what is it exactly?
Kitty Convict is a campaign to help bring the low percentage of lost cats found higher. In the United States, only 5% of lost cats ever make it back to their home. A huge reason is that people assume any cat outside is either an outdoor cat or they are a stray. Owners are always encouraged to put collars with tags on their felines but the Kitty Convict project is taking it a step further. The humor of it is putting an orange collar on your cat to signal to other people that the cat is indoor only and if it is seen outside with said orange collar, it is clearly lost… Or in other words, it is an escaped convict. The bright orange color is also helpful for spotting cats easier outside. Bonus points for orange reflective collars!
This is a very creative, humorous, and caring way to protect our furry family so I encourage all of my readers to support this campaign and get the word across. My cats are always in their collars and my younger one wears an ID tag. The older one, he is already wearing an orange collar. I am half way there!
