This purchase is my sixth. I have bought them for my cats and for friends. They are durable and extremely lovely.
These are really nicely made and beautiful collars. I purchased three for my cats because, like so many others have stated, the ones sold in your pet stores just don't cut it. These are more comfortable. We have a 3 kittles and the sensitive FIV+ guy really benefited from this. He was really scratching at the previous collar (and it was a good name-brand well made collar, mind you. But it was really bothering him which made me seek out Etsy to see if anyone had designed some alternative. Gave these a try and he isn't scratching at all. Neither is 1 of the other kittens. Our 3rd kitten remains to be seen. He just hates the collar, period, so I don't think that it's irritating him other than the fact that I would like him to wear it. I know there are pros and cons with cats wearing collars, but honestly, if they ever got out, the visual of someone seeing a collar will make them realize that they are someone's pet, not a poor kitty without a home. Thank you 'Made by Cleo' for developing a great solution to our issues and for creating such a beautiful quality product.
We recently purchased 4 velvet collars with the flat ID collars. Of course, we couldn't resist picking out charms for each of our 4 fabulous felines. We use them for our daily recess (always supervised!) in our yard, and have been taking them off after kitty recess to give them time to acclimate to wearing collars. Now, they are wearing them for much longer periods of time, everyone is happy to put them on because they know it means it time to roll around on the concrete and sniff the flowers, maybe even run up a tree!
We absolutely LOVE this collar! It is great quality and equally as stylish! The color is the perfect neutral for our gray kitty cat. He is indoor/outdoor and it has yet to fall off of him like other brands have in the past. We can't recommend this product enough!
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).
