So, the small was too small for my guy, but the large is a little too loose even on the smallest setting, but it seems to stay on him ok. We initially bought him a nylon collar, but when he grooms he grooms the collar, too, and his tongue must be super course because in a couple months the collar was so frayed I was worried it would snap off. So, we upgraded to this leather one. So far he grooms it the same way, but a month or so in and the collar has sustained no damage as a consequence of his grooming. He could also get the nylon break away collar off on his own and I was always hunting it down. He has not managed to remove this one. My guy does not go outside, so milage may vary for cats that do. He is special needs and this collar is just in case he does get out, to alert people to his immediate medical needs and provide the vet and my contact info. We hope to never need it, but knowing he has it is a stress reducer.
The collar is cute and I got the navy blue one, the color is beautiful. But this collar lasted less than a month, my baby is an indoor cat and normally I just change the collar cause I want to, not because is needed. But this collar broke cause of rusting, this is a first for me. My cat is white so it left a dark spot on his neck, don't buy it.
The small is extra small for kittens. But the details are too heavy with the bell and buckle. The bell is attached to one area and doesn't slide and there is no loop for the strap. The heavy buckle part is far from bell, which is attached with detailing. So the buckle stays near cats chin, while the bell is on top near ears. So it does not line up and looks sloppy with strap hanging loose. The blue bell and teal collar color is cute but there are major design flaws. The stretchy fabric area does nothing and the silver detailing looks nice but is too heavy for such a small collar. And the bell seems to settle right near the ears so it looks odd. Also, my kitten scratches at it and begs me to take it off so I am disappointed that I will have to get another one.
I was looking for a not- breakaway collar and unfortunately even though this one technically isn't, it basically is. My cat is adopted from the street and he still likes to go out daily to roam. The collar is to identify him among the true strays as unfortunately we have some of those. He's escaped two break away collars recently so tried this as an alternative. Unfortunately the stretch part basically makes it a break away and he managed to get rid of it the first day. I don't know where he is leaving them all but there is a pile of cat collars somewhere in my neighborhood.
The collar is nice BUT there are few issues that I am not please with - 1.) the strap is a little too long and it needs to hold the strap instead of hanging out, the left over strap did bother my kitty and he was trying to pulled off by his mouth and it get his teeth stuck by trying to get it off of his teeth. 2.) the bell on his collar got lost and it can never be fixed so I had to throw the collar away. So I would NOT suggest to buy it again.
I'm very happy with the purchase, my cat has kept it on since I put it on him, he can't take it off or lose it since it's a buckle collar and not a breakaway one.
This is not made of leather, it is "pleather" or vinyl. I was looking for a leather collar due to the reaction the plastic/stretchy collars are causing. This was in the search for a leather cat collar so beware.
I like the cat collar. All the colors that we can choose from.
I bought the red one back in 2020 for my cat Jay who was notorious for immediately ditching any breakaway. The buckle is great for stopping him slipping out and we frequently got compliments on how handsome he looked! The D-ring is excellent for holding his tags but I removed the bell with a pliers because it annoys me and him haha. Only flaw was the long tail of extra material which would frequently slip out of the D-ring. I would sometimes see Jay doing weird head movements and realize he was chewing the end! Anyway the collar lasted until April of this year (close to two years) before the elastic had stretched to the point that Jay could finally slip it off. The leather was pretty ragged by then but it never broke. I was so annoyed that these were briefly out of stock at that time; I bought CollarDirect's small dog collar but it was far too thick even for my big guy. So happy all of the colors are back in stock, I'm buying at least two different ones so we will be set for many years to come. Great product and I highly recommend!
Good quality product - amazingly quick delivery in the holidays!
