|The hanging tags are annoying to me, I don't think my cats care that much (although I did find kitty tooth marks on the plastic tag one of my cats was wearing...)
I also think the hanging tags are more likely to rub the fur off the cat's neck, and also more likely to get caught on things.
I have used hanging tags in the past and had them get caught which results of course in the break-away collar coming loose, and it can be hard to find where they lost the collars in the house. So with the flat CollarTags there is nothing to get caught so they don't lose their collars as often.
Once my cat Church lost his collar. I could not figure out where it went. Then I was feeding my sugar gliders, who have a large wire cage which is covered in a fleece cover on 3 sides, but the front is not covered. I happened to look up, and there was Church's collar, dangling down from the cage near the top. He must have been laying on top of the cage (the cats like to do this) leaned over the front and his hanging tag got caught through the wires of the cage and wouldn't come loose. Thank goodness I use breakaway collars because if he had tried to jump off the cage with the collar caught there, well I don't want to think about it.
I have also heard of pets getting their tags caught in floor a/c vents if you have that type (I don't), and the split ring that holds the tag getting caught in the fabric of a blanket or upholstery.
