Is not so little anymore. In fact he grew to big for his collar. I kept finding his grey break away collar around the house and when I went to put it back on him I realized it was a bit tight on his neck, so he was rubbing against thing's to get it off. (Of course we only use break away collars on our cat's for safety.) All our cat's are strictly indoor only, but Spot is the only one of the four to show any curiosity about the outside world. He has gone out the door a few times and of course we always bring him back immediately, but I still feel he must wear a collar in case he escapes.
15 years ago our now 16 year old cat Baby opened a screen in our Brooklyn basement apartment and was missing a week. We papered Bay Ridge in fliers and miraculously found her but the experience has made me a maniac about preventing cat escapes. (Interestingly it has also made Baby terrified of the outside world and she never even goes near the door.) I never open windows, even with screen's, and I'm very careful about the door. If a delivery person is coming the cat's get locked in a room. I'm constantly checking on the cats, particularly, Spot, to make sure they are inside. So the second I realized Spot's collar wasn't working I knew he needed another one.
Luckily I found a cute larger collar in the adorable etsy shop Furocious Kitty and bonus! It's a Star Trek collar, Spot is named after Commander Data's cat on Star Trek The Next Generation:
so this collar is perfect. Spot and I both love this collar. He has been wearing it three week's and hasn't tried to get it off yet.
I love how the retro Star Trek fabric look's against his white fur and the live long and prosper tag is too cute.
I really recommend Furocious Kitty if you are in the market for a cat collar. They have ton's of collar's with adorable charms in lot's of different themes Holidays, animals, food, etc. I can already see myself purchasing some Holiday collars. It's also nice that the shop caters exclusively to cats. I think that's partly why the collar fits so well. The collars are very reasonably prices, between $10 and $12, Spot's collar was $10 and the seller was very nice about answering my questions.
In other news I finished my third geeky cross stitch. This one is Fry and Leela from Futurama and I'm really happy with how it came out.
I'm working on Twin Peak's themed cross stitch next.
