My cats have never worn collars. These are really light and don't bother them at all. Might be worth a try.

You know how I get Ceili to drink a lot of additional water? I put an ice cube in a bowl of water and not only does she like to watch it float and melt (expecting it to do something, I guess), but she laps up the "ice" water because it's refreshing.

I hated using topicals because my poor cats would drool and their eyes would water. I tried Comfortis but it's a rather big pill for a cat and it was really hard to administer to them. I put it in their food but that month, most of it went to waste because they wouldn't eat the food due to the smell. I ended up getting Seresto collars last month and they're working great. Same idea as the topicals but they don't smell and last 6-8 months. You just need to keep an eye on your cat for any behavioral changes (like anything new that you would introduce) and make sure there's no irritation where the collar sits on their neck. None of mine have had any problems with them and don't even seem to notice it's there.

I really dislike putting Advantage on Ceili (necessary evil, now that I know fleas invade our ground floor apt, and since she likes to sit on the patio). She always has this wide-eyed WTF look the first half hour, and tries to "hide" from the icky feeling on her skin. I also don't like how the oil slick on her neck doesn't go away for 48 hours.
 
Oh well...she's meditating now. Little does she know that an hour of discomfort = you get to go outside sometimes

If they stay around you two for the next couple weeks, they should start to feel comfortable around people.
I am glad you are helping them. 
You two are the best!

So far its been one Mockingbird, and one Sparrow and the rest were Starlings. On the plus side Starlings are an invasive species and some states kill them en masse. So the cats are just doing a public service.

 

It's all good as long as they save room for the rodents including squirrels, after all that is what we pay them for. {#Yes} Only rule we have is no one messes with the bees, we had a dog that used to try to eat them, use to piss me off.{#Frustrated}
