Made the mistake of tossing a 'pretty' collar into the cart at petsmart without checking it first. I have bought so many collars for so many different cats that I just took it for granted that it was a breakaway safety collar. A few days ago our cat got it stuck in his mouth while he was wearing it and after chasing him through the house and more than my share of panic scratches I was able to free him. THAT'S when I realized it wasn't a safety collar.(Will always make sure now!) I know it had to have hurt his mouth and jaw.
I had bought Lupine collars before and the quality is very nice! This collar is no different. Very sturdy, nice clasp that will release with just enough pressure, but doesn't seem like it will give during normal play with the other cats or during a scratch session.
The only thing this collar is missing is a bell. But that's not really an issue, I just removed the bell from his old collar along with his tag and transferred onto this one. They hung a bit too low when attached to the collars tag loop so I added them around the collar part itself to keep him from playing with them and managing to remove the collar. Seems to work better and still fits comfortably and looks nice.
Lupine stated that it has a lifetime guarantee even if chewed or scratched. You need to return the collar to the address listed on the back of the card the collar is attached to along with your name, address, phone number and email address and they will send you another one. Or call the number they provide for details. Not too bad! Very nice to see a company that stands behind their products! I will be replacing our other 2 cats worn out collars with new Lupine collars! :)
The D-ring on this collar is covered on the neck side so that it won't scratch my cat's neck. Also, it has a breakaway collar which is a must for my active mostly-outdoor cat. The bell will give some warning to the wildlife in my yard, and the pattern is attractive. Finally, this is an American-made product, not something imported.
UPDATE Sushi is now 20.5 years and the collar still looks new and is no longer stiff. So I am upping the review to 5 stars. It is purrfect (groan).
I kept buying new safety collars, and we'd play a game of hide and seek as the cats removed and hid collars day in and out. After awhile the plastic clips in the buckles of safety collars would inevitably break and need to be replaced, and I bought this one on a whim just for convenience.
I was so surprised to find that my cat didn't take this one off! The buckle is still definitely a safety buckle, and I'm sure that if she ever were actually caught on something she could slip free of it, but it is just firm enough of a clasp that she can't pull it off easily, and has not done so at all in the several months she's been wearing it.
I loved it so much I bought another in plain red for my other cat, and it wasn't a fluke, both cats collared and secure without a single removal. Love it.
It's also really durable nice material, I doubt I'll need to replace it for years, and there are tons of different colors/patterns if you're picky about that.
Even though it stays connected the cat is still able to release the buckle in an emergency situation, like what happened when one of our cats got a non safety collar stuck in his mouth. When a cat sticks his foot up under the collar and pushes, the collar will pop open instead of sliding up over the chin and getting caught in his mouth.
The color of this collar is bright and cheerful. The collar material is sturdy and the collar seems to be very well made. Love it! :)
