Cats are People Too

Have you seen all those great pet collars on Etsy? They're really cool, but most of them are for dogs. It's the same thing when you go to the pet store...a whole aisle of sweet dog collars and toys & a small section for the cats. It's not fair!! I'm taking a stand for kitties. Actually, I decided to go ahead and make my own cool kitty collars.

They look alright, they just get a little worn after a while. I decided to just reuse the hardware on the old collars to make some new ones.

I used some scraps I had in the closet already. You only need a tiny strip & it took me about 10 minutes to make each one.

Jody is looking so stylish now with his manly stripes.

Maple keeps her collar well hidden under the fluff (I pushed it out of the way for the photo), but you get the idea.

This whole idea of sewing things for me (or my kitties) is kind of fun!

Very Nice!! You did a great job on them!

I can't keep collars on Fred and Charlotte. He removes his and she manages, each and every time, to get a leg stuck in hers. You have nice well behaved kitties and mine are not :-)

What a great idea and the resulting collars are quite lovely. You're so right about the dearth of cat collars compared to the plethora of dog products. I don't have any pets, but do have friends with cats so collars like the ones you made would be lovely gifts.

What fun, their collars look just wonderful.

Those are so cute. And I'm sure you'll get many compliments! I bought one from this etsy shop:


A great resource for cat collars for people who don't want to sew one.
