Warning – Cats and Collars

Warning: collars can be great identifiers and you can put bells, tags on them etc but if your cat wears a collar please make sure it has the correct tension – just 2 fingers to fit snugly between the collar and the neck. Too loose and the cat can get the collar caught under his front leg. If the cat can’t get the collar off, then the collar will rub under his armpit eventually into the bone. Infection will set in and the cat will die. (This one was caught in time)

If too tight clearly the cat can choke.

Make sure any collar used on cats has a quick release clip and an elasticated section.

The collar needs to be checked monthly for stretch and condition.
