1. Is it permissible to give a pet (like a cat or a bird) a toy bell to play with? The bell obviously makes a sound when the animal is playing with it.

2. Is it permissible to attach a bell to the collar of a pet cat? It would help in finding the cat as the bell makes a sound with any small movement the animal makes.


1. No.

2. If it is just to alert and for it not to endanger its life then it is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
