mommy put a collar on me about 3 weeks after she got me, and I hated it for the first couple of months. After all I had lived for six months without one, so why start wearing one then? Part of it was that I love getting underfoot too, and meowmy had already stepped on my tail by accident and boy was I upset! .
She was told that because kittens are rambunctious and also can grow pretty fast, she should look for a stretch collar. A stretch collar makes it easy for a kitten who gets caught into something to wiggle out, a lot easier than safety ones (which may not always open immediately, or so is mommy told), but the drawback is that a cat determined enough can paw it off himself. I'd manage to take it off once a week, but meowmy would always put it back. So at first, you might really dislike wearing it.
I would get a collar anyway, though: I got used to mine, I just needed to get used to the noise of it (and of my tags - mommy believes in tags even though I am a strictly indoor cat - you never know when something might happen and I might get out accidentally), but now it doesn't really bother me unless I feel like scratching under there.
