Cat Collars Accessories

Category: General
Posted by: Suresh

There are different types of accessories that can be fitted into cat collars, the most popular being bells and discs. These can add a bit of flare and style to the collar, though care should be taken should you decide to make use of them. Thus, before deciding to buy and use them, consider first whether they are really necessary.

For instance, if you have a pet bird in the house or leave in an area frequented by birds, attaching a bell to cat collars is a good idea. This will help to warn the birds that the cat is nearby and give them time to escape. On the other hand, if you don’t have a pet bird or have not feathered visitors, then a bell may not be necessary.

Along that line, avoid using such accessories or attachment unless they’re really necessary. There have reported cases of bells and discs getting caught in the cats’ jaws or claws. They can even get caught in holes and other objects which may cause harm to your feline friend.

Cat Collars Fitting Guide

Cats come in various sizes, so make sure you get the right collar size for yours.

As with dog collars, it is very important that your cat collar fit your pet perfectly. If they’re too loose, the cat will definitely remove them (unless they’re trained to wearing cat collars). If they’re too tight, the there is a high probability of your cat choking immediately when they get caught on something. As a rule of thumb, the correct fit should allow you to slip two fingers easily between the collar and your cat’s neck.

If you’re buying cat collars for kittens, consider getting those which can be adjusted accordingly. As the kittens grow, you’ll need to loosed their cat collars and eventually may need to buy them a new one. Along that line, it is best to train kittens to wear cat collars at a young age. Some vets will recommend that kittens start wearing them as soon as they reach five months old.

Cat collars are more than just a fashion accessory for your feline friends. By putting your cat’s name, your contact number, and your address on the tag or by embroidering them onto the collar itself, these can ensure the safe return of your pet back to you should they ever get lost. The aesthetic features are also an added plus since cats with collars simply look more endearing. But they should only be secondary features to look for, with safety and function being the first.
