Cat gets a new pink collar

My black cat has had her signature item, a pink collar, since she was a kitten. When the Paws family adopted her over 16 years ago, I picked out a pink collar for her. It has become almost an icon for her, making her stand out from the crowd.

Her old pink collar had seen its better days, being tattered and frayed.

It seems the hot pink makes her shiny black fur glisten. And what was to participate in The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop than showcase and share how great she looks in her new garb.

As you can see in these pictures, her old collar was all frayed and had lost its sheen. Pink Collar likes to scratch her neck with her hind claws, and well that did a number on her collar, which she’d had for quite a few years.

Unlike people, cats, well don’t go shopping for new clothes. Some people dress up their cats for special occasions. The Paws family has tried that with limited success. If we keep the hats on for a few moments as we grab a quick, and usually not so great photo, we’re lucky.

A collar, that’s different. It’s something she tolerates very well. It makes her black coat and little white star on her chest stand out, and it serves as an identifying marker. If she somehow went wandering, it would be easier to identify a cat with a hot pink collar. Not every cat is so lucky as to have such an identifying piece of should we say clothing. Perhaps, we should think of it as more of a necklace.

As the old collar was on its way out, we went shopping to find a new one. Of course, it had to be hot pink, and it had to have the safety feature of being a break-a-way, cause you never know when kitty might get caught up in who knows what, and the result could be devastating – even deadly.

As she did not like the bell, we quickly removed that. Every time she took a step, she looked at her human, as if to say, ‘What’s that noise? What am I doing to create that sound?’ We all know cats hear better than humans. For more on that visit our blog post, ‘Cats hear better than humans, but do they like our music’.

Do your cats have a collar, bandana, or something else that makes that sparkle and stand out from all the other felines. Please share, and join this fun discussion as part of The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.
