Anyone have kitty cats like ours who 1) hate wearing collars, 2) are sensitive to the material of most collars, or 3) both?
We have two kitties — one hates wearing collars. The other doesn’t mind them, but his skin don’t care for many of the ones we’ve bought in the past. It’s been a chore to get both cats to wear a collar — and to us, it’s important that they do, despite them being all-indoor cats. We like to have ID tags and rabies tags on them in the unlikely scenario that they sneak outside (which they have done the past) and get lost.
Cat collars, as you probably know, are not one-size-fits-all. There are different materials, closures, widths, and of course, fashion choices. When researching new cat collars to replace the nylon ones we’d recently tossed out, I knew I had to find a collar for our more sensitive cat that was made of a more natural, less irritating material.
The clasp is also something we find important. Our cats are playful and adventurous, and I want them to be able to escape out of a collar if they were to get caught on something, risking harm. I knew that a safety-release (breakaway) type clasp was essential for our kitties.
Lastly, aesthetics! Yes, our kitties are both boys, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t sport an attractive accessory! I knew I wanted something that was unique and attractive that would compliment their colorful personalities.
Enter Pettsie. I stumbled across this company while reading up on natural cat collars. I was immediately smitten with the attractive prints. The wooden bead accents were icing on the cake! The natural cotton, hemp, and wood craftsmanship materials were just what I was looking for.
I contacted the owner of Pettsie and she graciously agreed to send over two of the turquoise collars with wooden hearts for our review. In just a few days, I received the package via US Mail. Pettsie’s collars also come with a friendship bracelet for you, the cat owner, to wear! What a nice surprise.
Here’s a little unboxing video to give you an idea of the packaging and the product! (And of course, our kitties’ reactions!)
Both cats (and I) are extremely pleased — we all have a bit of colorful bling to brighten up these dreary, winter days. The collars appear to be extremely high quality, so I am anticipating them to wear well and hold up for a long while!
Pettsie graciously offered a collar (with matching friendship bracelet) (a pink one with a wooden heart!) to one Muse Reviews reader.
