The Kitty Convict Project: Make Orange the Universal Color of All Indoor Cats

Matthew Inman of the famous webcomic The Oatmeal has a great idea: make it a common custom for cat owners to give their indoor cats orange colors--and no other color. That way, if you ever see a cat outdoors wearing prison orange, then you know that it's a lost cat.

Inman is trying to address a problem: although 26% of lost dogs are returned home, fewer than 5% of lost cats are. That's because cats are good at hiding and most people, if they see a loose cat, just assume that it's an outdoor cat with a human family.

You can read the rest of Inman's funny pitch to end cat nudity here.

Great idea, except that my indoor cat hates all collars with a passion. Also I have an orange cat so you would never see the collar. And cat collars should be break-away anyway which means any cat that is outside long enough won't have one.
