Yes, it’s a huge controversy. This product is one I find it hard to recommend, actually, and this post is for educational purposes more than anything. It may be a great product in its own right, but do you really want your cat’s life to be in such peril that you need a reflective collar to alert motorists of your cat? If your cat roams outdoors where there are cars, you should really consider keeping it indoors-only.
Just in case you need the specs for this item, it is reflective and can be seen up to 1500 feet away when shined on at night time. It’s durable and weather-proof and is a safe breakaway collar, too. You can get it for your indoors kitty too, if you want a gold or silver fashion statement in your collar.
