Poorly designed collar,comes off too easily,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gloss Reflective Cat Collar with safety buckle Blue (Misc.)
Cant say too much about this collar,as it only lasted two hours ,before my cat came back without it,when it arrived it looked very good quality,and the bell it comes with is nice and loud,and collar is reflective,but when I pulled it apart to open it,i noticed it comes apart far too easily,i know it has to open in case the cat gets stuck somewhere,but the manufacturers would be better adding elastic to collar instead of a break away plastic clip function,,as this would be better for cats,and would still come off if cat got stuck,the connection is a plastic two prong that clips together,and is very poor design in my opinion,the slightest pull from a cat means it will come off,and lost,cannot recommend it,needs a design change by adding elastic to collar instead of the plastic clip,and it would be perfect,and would buy with no problem ,until then avoid this collar and do not buy,sorry Ancol,thumbs down from me,and my cat.

May I just add a word of caution about adding elastic to cat collars. Where I volunteer at cats protection. I have seen cats with extended collars have horrific injuries caused by them getting their paws through their collar and under their arms. This then, if left cuts into the skin. Cats also have acute hearing, I have know cats get their own collars off because of the bell. Small tinkling sou d to us but for the cat, clanging cow bell 24/7!

Thank you for your helpful reply,i never realised the injuries cats could get with elasticated collars,as I wouldn't want my cat or anybodys cat to be injured in that way,but my cat goes hunting a lot,and if I bought this collar I would need to replace it every day.or even 2 or 3 times a day,which is obviously not practical, my cat has a elasicated one at present and has had it for a year or so with no problems so far,as I have it so he could get it over his head if he got stuck somewhere,but never thought about it getting stuck under his armpit,which is worrying,is there any other collar you would suggest for a hunting cat like mine,thanks.
