Break-Away Collars for Cats
Breakaway Cat Collars
Our breakaway cat collars are the most popular of all the cat safety collars we offer. A breakaway cat collar does just what the name implies- a special clasp pops open to free your cat if the collar gets caught on something. The clasp is not damaged during release so these safe cat collars are reusable. Available in six colors, with or without personalized embroidery.
Many experts suggest that if you are going to put a collar on your cat, it should be some sort of cat safety collar that will release the pet if the collar were to ever get snagged or caught on something. We offer two other styles of safe cat collars that stretch to release but our breakaway collar is different in that it releases completely and in any direction. The only risk with breakaway collars is the risk of losing the collar, particularly, if the cat goes outside. If you find the collar after a release, the clasp is still functional- you can put the collar back on the cat, and it will be as good as new. Most of our customers have decided that the risk of losing the collar far is far outweighed by the benefit.
Breakaway cat collars are 3/8-inch wide nylon, the standard width recommended for cats. The length is adjustable to fit most any adult cat but if your prefer to be certain, measure your cat’s neck and add about 2” to get your cat’s collar size. This collar will adjust from 8.5 to 13.5 inches. Choose from the following color choices: red, purple, blue, black, neon pink and sky blue.
Each breakaway collar is available with or without a bell. A bell can be useful in alerting you of your cat’s location, or in helping your neighborhood birds survive your pet’s instinct to hunt.
All of our cat safety collars work great with pet ID tags, and most of our cat collars can have your cat's name and your phone number embroidered into the collar for an added level of security.
If the breakaway collar is not your preferred style, check out our other collars for cats. Our Safety Collar With Stretch Section has an elastic loop that allows the collar to stretch for your cat to pull its head out and with the Stretch Safety Collar, the whole collar stretches. Finally, while our standard Traditional Cat Collars, and the Adjustable Cat Collars don’t offer a release feature, a properly sized, basic cat collar is still be a completely reasonable option, especially for less adventurous pets!
