Contrary to what some people think, collars are just as necessary for cats as they are for dogs. All cats, both indoor and outdoor, should wear a collar to make sure they can be identified if needed, usually with tags attached to the collar. It’s also helpful to show that your cat is not a stray, even if nobody can get close enough to read the tags, at least they will be able to describe the collar and know the animal has a home.
It’s best to have a collar with break-away protection if it is going to be used on a cat, as these furry friends have a propensity for getting collars caught on things. Rather than cause pain or choking, break-away collars simply come unclipped so the cat can’t be injured. Some cats will even allow you to walk them on a leash, though the enjoyment of leash walking usually depends on the cat’s personality and may not work for every pet. PetEdge offers a great selection of cat collars and leads, including fashion forward designs and perfect sizing for your feline friends!
