The Best Cat Collars for Your Feline Companion

Having a collar for your cat is a crucial way to make sure there is identification if he or she escapes and wanders off. Both indoor and outdoor cats should wear collars to prevent being taken to a shelter and to ensure their safe return home. Here are some great cat collars we recommend.

Purchasing a Cat Collar

Here’s what to know before you buy:

  • Size: Cat collars come in different sizes for kittens and adult cats. Consider if the collar can expand and retract for your cat’s neck size.
  • Embellishments: Some cat collars come with bells on them to help you keep track of where they are so that you don’t accidentally step on them. Others have fun printed or embroidered designs. Choose something that fits your cat’s personality.
  • Breakaway: Collars with a quick release if the cat gets caught on something are an excellent choice to prevent accidental injuries.

Best Personalized Option: FlowerTown Cat Collar

This breakaway cat collar comes with customization to embroider it with your cat’s name and your phone number. The collar features the quick-release buckle and a non-corrosive stainless steel D-ring with a bell hanging from it. It can also accommodate an ID tag. The collar’s highly-reflective surface is made with nylon and has a smooth edge for a comfortable fit. This long-lasting collar comes in six collar options and 12 embroidery thread options.
