I'm getting a new tag; I'm getting a new tag!

I'm getting a new tag! Actually two of them! One will come next week, and one will come in 2-3 weeks. I have one tag already; my little pink heart engraved with my name and Mommy's phone number. But, she decided that wasn't enough now that I'm going to be visiting as a therapy cat. So she's going to get me two others instead. I'll still get to keep my pink one, but not for when I'm visiting.

My first tag is going to be my rabies tag. I was going to get my updated shot yesterday, but Mommy was not feeling up to going to the pet store, so I will get my rabies shot next Sunday. I really don't mind it, because Mommy holds me and pets me while they poke me in the leg. It's required by our state every three years, so I absolutely have to have it current when I go out, along with paperwork and the tag with my license number on it.

My second tag is going to be a Together Tag. Mommy did a post about it on her new bloggie, the Frugal Feline. The Together Tag is something thought up by Dogster/Catster after Hurricane Katrina, when all the pets were stranded (with or without their people). It's made to withstand natural disasters, though I don't think we'll have one of those here anytime soon. It has a special number and website, and my name and Mommy's phone number. The special number is the password to the website, which has information on how to reach my family, including an out-of-state friend to contact in case no one can reach Mommy or Daddy. I'm going to have this tag because it is easier for people to read than the engraved metal one, and if I run away while on a visit then they can contact Mommy right away. I keep on telling Mommy I'm not going to run away, but she wants me to have it anyway.

I'm excited to get my new tags, because I love walking around with jingling things. For a while, I had a collar with a bell on it, and I loved shaking my shoulders just to hear the bell jingle! These tags will be on my harness, so I'll definitely be the "Jingle Bell Girl"!

Enjoy your new tags. We refuse to wear collars around here but we never go out so it doesn't matter.

Collars stay on us about an hour. Then they go missing! We're microchipped, so we each have an inside tag!

Congrats on your new tags!! I don't like collars or bells and I don't have a tag. But I got a chip in me that mommy says will keep me safe.
