Trixie Cat Collar
Advantages: sturdy, safe
Many people are very vocal about the fact that they don't believe that cats should wear collars, this is mainly because of the fact that cats can get their collars caught in branches or other obstacles when they jump and strangle themswelves. I have always made sure Simba wears a collar with a safety feature which means that if it gets caught then the collar will break open and fall off and the cat will remain unharmed. His latest collar is the Trixie collar which cost just £1.99 from Zooplus.co.uk.
The collar comes in a number of different colours, Simba's is black which is very manly (unlike him who is a huge sap) and he looks very handsome with the black collar contrasting against his ginger fur. I like the fact that the collar is so visible as it means that people can see at a glance that he has an owner and will hopefully refrain from feeding him or letting him move in with them.
The collar is easily adjustable and stays securely buckled, Simba is a scrawny little thing and it adjusts small enough to fit him snugly. The safety device works well, his collar has snapped off a number of times, once when he managed to somehow get his foot stuck inside it so I am happy that he is safe wearing it.
The other thing I like about the collar is that it has a bell attached to it. The metal loop keeping the bell in place is nice and sturdy so no fear of the bell falling off. The bell plays two roles the first one is to warn birds that he is about to try and eat them and this doesn't work too well but I think that is more to do with the stupidity of the birds than a fault with the collar. The second is to let us know where Ninja cat is and the bell is loud enough that he jingles as he walks around so we can keep track of his movements. It is also possible to attach a name tag to the bell loop.
Simba has worn the Trixie collar for a few months now and it is starting to look slightly frayed but still has another few months wear in it. I generally like collars to last a year and this one will last this long if it is not lost, a great buy from Zooplus and recommended by me and Simba.
Summary: an excellent buy
