Collared and tagged at all times. When I have them on a leash, I use a seperate collar to attach the leash to. Training sessions and in the ring are the only exception to the collar rule. Years ago, Lucky got lost for 6 hours in Anaheim, CA without his collar. He wasn't chipped at the time, because I couldn't afford to get his shots and the chip both. Luckily, he lived up to his name, and was found. He's been chipped since then.
Actually, all my cats, with the exception of Trouble, wear collars and tags, also. They are also all chipped except for Fiesty and Trouble. I wasn't planning on keeping Fiesty, so I didn't get one for him. When they go in for their annual rabies shots, I'll have them chipped, also.
ETA When I took Leontine to the vet, we both forgot to check her for a chip. I had to take her back a couple of days later to be scanned. She doesn't appear to have a chip. So, it just goes to show that even people who should KNOW to check for a chip can forget.
