Cat collars, what types can you get?

At Digibell we have scoured the internet to put togeter a comprehensive list of the differnet types of collars available for your cat. We are sure there will be something here for any budding collar buyer!

  • Standard Nylon Safety Release Collar

This is the most popular and commonly used cat collar. It is adjustable, has a safety release buckle and is available in a vast quantity of colours, patterns and styles. They generally come with a traditional bell but this is easily removed so you can attach the Digibell. Nylon collars typically cost around £3-5.

  • Silver Reflective Safety Collar

This is a best selling no frills collar. Best selling because it’s only £3. It's reflective which is useful for road safety and adjustable to suit most cats. It also comes with a bell but this is easily removed. As a safety release collar it should keep your cat safe from getting snagged. Be sure to test this feature before you attach it to your cat.

  • Flea Collar

Cat Flea Collars contain an insecticide that kills fleas on your cat and prevents their return for up to 4 months. They can be fitted to kittens over 12 weeks old and like almost all collars.

  • Calming Collar

Calming Collars for cats effectively reduce problem behaviour arising from stressful situations in cats of all breeds and ages, using Valerian and Lavender. This relaxes the cat and helps reduce stress. Typically used when your cat is travelling, but can also be used taking a cat to the vet, the cattery or on firework night.

  • Traditional Buckle

This is an ancient design that has withstood the test of time. One study recently showed that in some cases the traditional buckle design was the safest for a cat to wear, although we still recommend a safety release collar whenever possible. Many version of this design are available, and for all budgets. Chealsea Cats offer a large range of quality leather collars with prices starting from around £35.

  • Beastie Band

Beastie Band Cat Collars are designed to be comfortable. They are are made of soft and stretchy neoprene. It's lightweight, stretches for safety and an be cut to size. So getting a great custom fit is easy whether you have a tiny kitten or a 'couch potato' kitty.
