It is important that every cat have a collar with an identification tag. The collar will allow you to find your cat if he ever gets lost or runs away.
There are several factors to consider when shopping for a collar. You will need to consider what materials you want the collar made and the correct size.
The ideal collar is easy to clean, highly visible (allowing for your cat to be seen at night), durable, comfortable and safe. You will need to decide what materials you want to collar made from, the style and color as well as choose the correct size.
Nylon and leather collars with buckled or snap-together closure options are great choices. Test the snap-together sample to ensure that the hold is strong. A break-a-way collar is best in case your cat gets caught on something.
