The day after we brought Arthur and Beowulf home, we went to local Petco and got them engraved ID tags with their names and our phone numbers. Considering that these are indoor-only cats, one might argue that they don't need ID tags, but you never know when they might accidentally leave the apartment.
As you might image, the cats often try to chew at the ID tags, but since they are nice shiney metal, they don't come apart. That said, I'm starting to wonder if perhaps I should either remove their ID tags for a while or find some kind of light plastic tag for them instead. The reason I'm thinking about changing or removing their tags is that the metal tags might actually pose more danger to our apartment than the cats do. Everytime the cats jump on something or run into something (like the window), the loudest bang comes from the heavy metal ID tag clanging into things. I'm very concerned that they may smash the windows and it would be the ID tag that smashed them, not their body weight or their paws.
Can anyone recommend a lightweight ID tag or do you think I can just live without them for a while? Of course, any ID tag would have to be hard enough to be tooth-proof, since they chew at their ID tags all the time.
