|My brother and I are totally inside kitties but we didn't come to live with cat-mom & dad until we were 18 months old....and we'd never worn collars. So cat-mom bought collars and put them on us, but we freaked out. I worked and worked to get it off until I got it stuck between my jaws, too....and then it took cat mom forever to catch me as I ran amuck all over the house. By then, my mouth was bleeding. My brother completely froze when she put one on him. He would not move at all, just like a statue. So we do not wear collars. We just refuse to wear them.
I would suggest getting micro-chipped. Even if you wear a collar, it can become hooked on something while you're out romping (unless it's a breakaway and I'm not sure those always work), or it could come off. With microchipping, you do not have to worry about this. It's a suggestion.
A harness is another option, but again, you could get it caught on something while you're out and then be in danger. If you have to go out .... and you aren't able to adjust to wearing a collar....then chipping is probably the best. Good luck
