Cheshire & Wain are purveyors of luxury leather safety collars for the UK’s pampered pusscats. The company is the brain child of Londoner, Sonja Farell, who was inspired to create her range of high-end collars by her own pampered puss, the beautiful Mr Percy Wells (Percy to his friends).
At first glance, the collars appear to be of the standard (and dangerous!) buckle fastened variety, but a closer inspection reveals a discreetly placed safety catch (as demonstrated by Mr Percy Wells above and below). Nifty, no?
Cheshire & Wain Colour Pop Collars (see top photo) are available in a swathe of contemporary hues. Each collar is made from vegetable tanned Italian leather, and incorporates a brass buckle and bell, in addition to the discreet safety catch. Priced from £35.00.
Please note: these collars are not suitable for kittens or cats weighing less than 2.5kg, as the safety release buckle will only open under pressure from weights of 2.5kg or more.
Cheshire & Wain also produce these two brass animal skull collar charms, which I absolutely love – they’d make great key rings or pendants too!
Bat Skull Charm and Raven Skull Charm, available for £19.00 each.
I love the new range of polka dot safety collars from Mog’s Togs! The collars are handmade from premium quality cotton, and feature the all-important safety buckle, which will break apart under gentle pressure to prevent your cat from becoming entangled when out and about on Important Cat Business.
The collars are available in four colourways – ideal for multi-cat households who like to colour-coordinate!
Polka Dot Safety Collars are available for £5.95, but lucky old Cool for Cats UK readers can grab a 10% discount by using the code COOLFORCATS at the checkout.
Congratulations to: Vicky B, Nicola C, Silvia Z, Emma R and Polly H – you’ve all won a Personalised Cat Collar from Kitty Collars. Here’s hoping your collective cats will be impressed with their new collars, and eternally grateful to you for entering the giveaway on their behalf. (Please keep an eye out for an email from me.)
If you weren’t lucky enough to win but would still like to get your paws on one of these fantastic safety collars, the Personalised Cat Collar is available from Kitty Collars for £8.99.
This month the lovely people at Kitty Collars are offering 5 lucky Cool for Cats UK readers the chance to win one of their Personalised Cat Collars!
Personalised Cat Collars are a great way to ensure your contact details are easily visible should your cat become lost, and can also be used to draw attention to health conditions which require a special diet (ie diabetes). Or maybe the cat in your life is on the tubby side, and you’d like to prevent kindly neighbours from being hoodwinked into providing extra meals!
Never rely on a collar as the sole means of identifying your cat should he or she become lost – always ensure your cat is microchipped too.
