Too many problems

I got this for my black cat, Loki, mainly because I loved the reflective design. Not the smartest reason to purchase something. We've had a lot of problems with this collar. It started with the bell. It was so annoying, and it drove both me AND my cat crazy. He kept putting it in his mouth and walking around like that, trying to rip it off or silence it I'm guessing, so I had to remove it. Taking this collar off and putting it on is no simple task. The clasp is ridiculously hard to use. To put it on it needs to be at a perfect angle, and sometimes cats don't want to sit still long enough for you to line up a thin little clasp. Taking it off is even worse. The amount of pressure I have to exert on the sides makes my hands shake. It's funny though, he is able to get it off quite easily by himself. I constantly come home to be greeted by him without a collar, and find it laying around somewhere. Luckily he's chipped, because if he ever got out he'd lose this collar pretty quickly, so the reflective design is no use anyway. Also, the design quickly wore off due to my cat scratching at the collar. It is now frayed and distorted after only 3 months. It wasn't too tight, and he has always worn a collar, so I'm not sure if it was the material that bothered him or what. I did trim off the long tag to a nonexistant length with cuticle scissors before putting it on him to avoid any bother. I'll probably look for a better collar next time.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

My cat is not a big fan of wearing a collar, so getting it on her head is already a struggle. This is a nice, small collar, but she went nuts with the tiny bell attached - it's too much like a toy for her, and the sound made her go beserk. We laughed and tried to get it off - and yikes, the clasp is really quite hard to open! You have to push down quite hard and slide it out at a perfect angle - not possible with a squirming, clawed animal. We ended up puling it over her head to get it off (fortunately we had not adjusted to make it smaller).
