Ok. My new now almost 7 month old kitten is such a curious handful. Where I never had to collar my previous cat, Gillian the QUEEN who lived to 18 in such style and grander we revel in to this day and always, this new dude, our new KING Arlo is so sneaky, itching to explore: to jump on the dog, attack our ankles, go straight up trees!! Not to worry I’ve got this little royal one on a harness. Here’s what I love about Cleo though: super prompt order receipt and delivery. The quality is second to NONE, and I’ve had two instance already where our guy has taken a wrong turn into the stairs /got in a mix up outside and the protective breakaway collar popped off without issue each time - and I was right there both times and he was totally a-ok. The beautiful gold bell keeps us alerted to potential ‘jellybean’ paw attacks, and his amazing gold name plate with my phone number is extra insurance that who he is and where his home is, is without question. Lastly. Two words. Bow ties. Every day. My cat. This distinguished gentleman, is proudly sporting a bow tie. I can’t even deal with it. I’m actually ordering more collars tonight! Love. LOVE Made By Cleo.
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).
