A petsafe collar?

Petsafe Collar - When you own pets that roam outside occasionally you are faced with some challenges. One of the biggest concerns cat owners have is their outdoor/indoor cats’ safety. Having three cats that go outside a lot, I am no stranger to the worry. A petsafe collar is the perfect solution to the dilemma.

Basically, my felines are outside most of the time. They were each originally strays so they are very found of the outdoors. The felines come inside to eat and sleep and that’s pretty much it. The rest of the time they are wandering around our five acre plot of land. We are conveniently located near farms and our road is very quiet.

Traffic is not the only worry that we have with the outdoor cats. We always have our pets’ information on their tags and we make sure that they always wear collars but the very collars that are supposed to help can be hazardous as well. A petsafe collar is not hazardous for many reasons.

Felines tend to climb trees, fences and just about anything else that they can get their claws into. The danger with the typical collar is that it can get caught on branches or other materials commonly found outdoors. When this happens the cats are at risk of choking. A well designed petsafe collar can literally mean the difference between life and death for your cat.

Finding a good petsafe collar is essential for your outdoor cat. You want to find a pet safe collar that will break away if it gets caught on something. You can easily test it right in the store by placing it on your arm until it is semi-snug. You then tug it to see how quickly it breaks away.

You should have to use some force to have it break away. You also want to look for a petsafe collar that has reflective panels on it. These will reflect car lights and help to avoid your cat from being hit by a car. You will want to make sure the collar fits your cat. You want it to be snug, but you should be able to put your index finger through the loop up to your second knuckle.

You also want a petsafe collar that has a loop for a leash that is felt and does not stick out as the metal clasps tend to. The metal hooks can also get caught on things. You also may want to consider a pet safe collar that has a felt tag clasp as well. A well designed petsafe collar is one of the more important purchases you will make for your pet. Your local vet usually carries pet safe collars, as well as department stores and pet stores.

The only drawback is that when the collar breaks away outside, your chances of retrieving it are slim. Luckily, they run around seven dollars and this is a very small investment.
