How to Choose a Cool Cat Collar

Material

There are an array of material options, from synthetic fibres to natural materials. Whilst some materials will offer the benefit of being very durable, they may not be the most comfortable for your cat. It can be tricky to get that perfect balance, especially when other elements such as texture and smell should be considered too - you might be surprised at how import scent is to you cat!

It is preferable to consider a material that is soft, lightweight and flexible, so that it allows your cat to move unrestricted as they explore. It needs to be scratch and fray resistant whilst offering a softness that provides comfort for your cat. A comfy collar should deter your cat from scratching or clawing at it.

Lastly, for ultra-kitty comfort, consider the material on the inside of the collar. This should be as soft and gentle on kitty fur as the outside of their collar. Sadly, some collars can have rougher internal linings (for example a rough suede lining on a leather collar). As this is the part that’s in constant contact with your cat’s body, it’s essential that it’s smooth and can glide across your cat’s fur with ease. We understand how import this is, so here at Supakit, we double line all of our collars so that the inside is as soft and luxurious as the outside. Handmade with care.

Style and Colour

Look for a collar that has a sleek, slim-fitting profile as this will feel most comfortable for your cat. Bulky hardware or large embellishments on a collar can be a safety hazard, and can add unnecessary, extra weight to your cat’s collar and neck.

As for colour, you can choose a collar that best suits your cat’s personality. Bright colours have the additional benefit of helping you spot your cat if they are hiding or at night.

Safety Features

For optimum safety consider a collar which has a breakaway buckle. Breakaway buckles are designed to unclasp under tension, allowing your cat to release themselves if their collar becomes snagged or caught.

At Supakit our breakaway buckle collars come in two ‘strengths’, one suitable for adult cats and the other for kittens. This makes our collars safe and suitable for cats throughout every stage of life.

Fit and Size

Fit and size is super important when choosing a cat collar. If your cat’s collar is too tight, it could become uncomfortable or hazardous. If their collar is too large, it could irritate their fur, get caught in their mouth or become snagged and lost as they explore.

As your cat ages, their size may change so it is important to check their collar fit regularly and adjust it accordingly. Here at Supakit, our collars are designed to be comfortable and lightweight enough to be worn with a snug fit. For a Supakit collar we advise that you can fit one fingertip between your cat’s collar and their body when it is on.

Weight

A lightweight collar is great option for your cat. Lightweight collars offer the most comfort and are more likely not to be noticed by your cat. Heavy or bulky collars can cause stress on the neck, irritate the surround fur and skin, with the added detriment of compromising safety.

This is particularly important for kittens, who need a collar that’s made for their lighter bodies.

Leash Options

In the interest of safety, leashes shouldn’t be attached directly to a collar. Instead, leashes should be attached to a harness specifically designed for cats.

What Makes a Cat Collar Stylish?

What makes a cat collar stylish is really personal preference! Whether you want bold and bright, or subtle and chic, choose a collar that suits your cat’s personality.

What Type of Cat Collar is Safest?

The safest type of collar is a specialist cat collar with a vet-recommended breakaway buckle. Breakaway buckles release under tension, stopping your cat from being hurt or trapped if the collar is snagged. Look for a collar with a slimline, simple design. Although collars with embellishments may look stylish, extra embellishments can irritate your cat and are a potential snagging hazard.

How to Care for a Cat Collar

The best way to care for a cat collar is to follow the care instructions set by the manufacturer. Looking after your Supakit collar is simple, just wipe it down with a damp cloth and allow it to air dry.

How Often Should You Wash a Cat Collar?

You should wash your cat’s collar as often as you need too. Regular cleaning can make it easier to maintain, preventing hair and dirt building up. Some fabrics or colours may be more prone to dirt, so you may need to clean it more often. How you clean your collar will depend on its care instructions.

Do Cats Dislike Collars?

Cats don’t dislike collars in general however, it can take them some time to adjust to new things. When introducing a new collar to your cat, it is important not to rush the process.

Should I Take My Cats Collar Off at Night?

You don’t need to take your cat’s collar off at night. If your cat is comfortable wearing their collar, they shouldn’t even notice that it is on!

Is a Collar or Harness Better for a Cat?

Neither a collar or harness is better for as cat as they both have different functions. For continuous wear and to hold visible ID, collars are a great choice. If you want to use a leash with your cat, then a harness is the preferred option. Leashes should not be attached directly to a collar, especially breakaway buckle collars.
