A cat collar is a must if you want your kitty to stand out from the crowd. Coloured, furry, diamond-encrusted – almost anything is possible. Just choose the collar that matches your cat’s character, or just get them a new one every now and then.
However, you should bear in mind that cat collars aren’t just decorative items. Your cat should wear a collar that provides some form of identification at all times, even if it’s just a name tag.
It is important that your cat’s collar is made of a stretchable material such as nylon or have some form of release mechanism or safety clasp. If your cat gets caught on something, such as a tree branch, you want to be sure that they can slip free of the collar without hurting themselves. Remember, a break away cat collar is a must.
Collars come in a range of sizes that are usually based on the size or weight of the cat. As your cat grows they will need a new collar, so keep checking to make sure it is not too tight. Ideally the collar should be slightly loose around your cat’s neck – a good test is that you can easily slip two fingers inside the collar when it is fitted. Take care that the collar is not too loose or your cat will soon find a way to pull it off.
