Cats Protection Urges Scrunchie Caution

15 April 2015
Cats Protection

UK - Following recent reports of hair scrunchies being used on cats to reduce their hunting success, the UK’s leading feline welfare charity, Cats Protection, would like to urge caution.

While recognising that cats catching birds is a concern, the use of scrunchies could cause serious harm to the cat if it becomes caught or tangled.

For this reason, the only articles placed around a cat’s neck should have a quick release fitting or a snap opening.

Cats prefer to hunt at dawn and dusk so Cats Protection believes an effective way to reduce hunting is to keep cats in at night.
