A collar and ID tag may be your cats' ticket home if they get lost or something else happens. Even indoor-only cats should wear collars, because if they accidentally escape or wander off, with an ID tag, your cats have a better chance of safely and quickly getting back home.
It can be difficult to place the first collar on some cats that have never worn a collar. Your cats may scratch at the collar at first, since it feels foreign, but your cats should adjust to it with short sessions, rewards, persistence and patience.
Here at Pawsome Couture, we've helped a huge numbers of feline friends around the world discover the joys of wearing collars, and we'd love to share what we've learned along the way with you!
"My cat Leo loves the upgrade!! He use to have a cheap collar from petsmart that frayed due to his feet scratching his neck sometimes, and now the leather withstands that!!! No more frays. Always looks top tier on him and our family has noticed he looks like a luxurious black kitty but I def believe the collar enhanced that!!! I’m glad your company exists and our pets deserve great quality things too!!" - Claudia S.
"My cat is so very comfortable wearing this!! No more scratching around her neck as she has done with all the others! The leather is so pliable and soft too! My other two cats will soon be getting their own too! Thank you 😊" - Tracy S.
The first is to make sure the collar fits appropriately. You should be able to slip one or two of your fingers between the collar and your cats' neck to ensure the fit is good but not too tight. This should also be checked weekly to ensure that it hasn't moved or adjusted slightly.
The second step is to gradually get your cats used to the new collar and to associate it with something positive. If your cats seem irritated at first, remove after a short time and gradually increase the time it is left on. Try using a tasty treat to distract your cats' attention from the collar. If your cats slip the collar off, replace it and give your cats a treat. By the time your cats finish the treat, they may have forgotten the collar entirely. You may have to repeat this trick a few times.
