My cats are named after mushrooms (meowshrooms, if you will) so I was very excited to see this beautiful fabric pattern that matched them so well. I purchased the adult size for my younger cat (he is about 8 months old) and it was way too big for him, even at its smallest size. His neck circumference is on the lower end of the adult size range. He attempted to take the collar off, and got the buckle stuck in his mouth and could not get it off even though it was a breakaway collar (the physics of it just didn't work since the whole buckle was stuck inside of his mouth between his teeth.) We were able to slide the buckle out of his mouth and unhook it so he was totally fine. THIS IS WHY SIZING IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!!! Because the collar was too big for him, there was enough room for him to slide his jaw under the collar to attempt to pull it off. We ended up giving the collar to our older cat (2.5 y/o) who fits into it much better! The craftsmanship of the collar is so sturdy. I can see this collar lasting a very long time due to its reinforced backing and am very happy with the quality! Would highly recommend purchasing from Made by Cleo, just don't make my mistake and look at the sizing chart/measure your cat first!
Love the pattern and the way it looks on my handsome man! Another great collar added to the existing Made by Cleo collection.
Both boys look beyond handsome! Quality is fabulous! Will be recommending to others 100%!
Stunning quality, cute prints, AHHHH!! Will never buy anywhere else! <3
The numbers listed below represent the shortest & longest adjustable length range for the neck size options we offer. We strongly recommend measuring your pet's neck before ordering, if this is your first time. Tip: A simple piece of string or ribbon (or equivalent flexible household item) can be used to assess the collar length your pet needs -- then measure the amount of string you used, laid out flat alongside a straight ruler. Often, customers may not realize their pet is smaller (or larger) than average prior to measuring!
If your pet is in-between sizes, select the closest size from the dropdown menu, but be sure to provide your pet's exact neck size measurements in the "Special Instructions" message box (on the Cart page before checkout) so that our seamstresses can make any necessary custom sizing adjustments to ensure an optimal fit for your pet. We'll take care of it as long as you give us the measurements!

A Note About Adding "Slide" Tags to Collars: If ordering a personalized slide tag name plate to be put on your collar, the length of the tag will reduce the maximum length of the collar by 1.5 inches. If your pet's neck size is very close to the maximum of a certain size range and you plan to get a slide tag with the collar - to avoid any fit issues, we recommend ordering the next size up, or adding a note in the "Order Notes" box (located on the Cart page before checkout) to let us know your pet's exact neck size so our studio can make any necessary adjustments as needed.
"Size" refers to the collar's adjustable length (in inches).Note: The standard width of our collars is 1/2", regardless of the size option / length you select. To see a quick demo on how to adjust the size of your pet collar and achieve an optimal fit, watch the video below.
"Buckle Type" refers to the black or white standard plastic side-release clasp shown in all collar product photos in our store. On every collar product page, you will be given the option to select whether you prefer a "Breakaway" or "Non-Breakaway" plastic buckle clasp. Both types look the same as what you see in the photos — the difference has to do with the internal pronged mechanism, which makes them function differently. See the illustration below to compare the visual differences. Please Note: The details regarding the differences shown below will apply whether it's pertaining to a white or black buckle clasp:
The functional differences are as follows:
"Hardware" accent color refers to the various standard metal components that are part of the pet collar— i.e. the collar length adjuster, the round split ring for cat collars (or D-ring for dog collars), and the included removable bell. Note: The hardware color choices do NOT apply to the plastic buckle clasp - the buckle will always be plastic (unless you specifically order a metal buckle upgrade to go with your collar).
