What collar should I purchase for my cat?
If you do choose to have a collar fitted, it is advised by Cats Protection that you purchase a 'quick release' or snap opening collar, in preference to an elasticated one. The cat is less likely to be trapped should the collar become caught or tangled, keeping your cat safe from harm.
Making sure the collar fits correctly is important too. Two fingers should fit snugly underneath it when the cat is wearing it, to ensure safety and comfort. A cat's leg or jaw can easily become caught in an ill-fitting collar and this can result in serious injury.
