collar hunting / serĉado por kolrimeno

recently we bought a new collar for Fae because her previous one, a black nylon feed-through collar, had become horrible due to her scratching it. the new one that we got was a Rogz break-away collar and it seems to be slightly too big for Fae's neck. often while cleaning herself her ID tag gets in her way because it and the collar are hanging so low. when it gets in her way she gets really mad at it and bites the tag until she pulls the collar off. she's even been able to get her lower jaw into the inside the collar and pulls off the collar that way. she never had a problem with the previous collar, so this new collar is definitely the problem.

lastatempe ni aĉetis novan kolrimenon por Fae ĉar la antaŭa kolrimenon, kiu estis nilona kaj nigra kaj senlima pri grandeco, fariĝis malbona pro gratado. la nova kolrimeno estas tujmalfermebla kaj ĝi verŝajne estas tro granda por la kolo de Fae. ofte lekante sin Fae mordadas la identigaĵon sur la kolrimeno ĉar ĝi estas tro malalta sur ŝia kolo kaj ĝenas ŝian lekadon. foje ŝi eĉ povas meti sian mandiblon en la enan flankon de la kolrimeno kaj fortiras la kolrimenon.  la antaŭa kolrimeno verŝajne tute ne ĝenis ŝin, do la problemo devas esti la nova.

i've been looking at some designer collar sites because it seems like they're the only ones that offer more sizes than just "kitten" and "adult cat". Kittyboo Collars in particular has an awesome assortment of collars that are available in 3 sizes. :) i'm still undecided on which collar to get, but at the moment the other human seems to really like this one. hmmmm.... that one's ok, i suppose, but for now i'm still looking.

nun mi serĉadas novan kolrimenon ĉe retaj vendejoj, kiuj ĉefe vendas kolrimenoj por katoj. kial tiaj vendejoj? ĉar verŝajne nur tiuj vendejoj havas kolrimenojn kun pli ol la kutimaj 2 opcioj pri grandeco: "katido" kaj "kato". la ttt-ejo Kittyboo Collars estas bonega vendejo ĉar ĝi havas multe da diversaj kolrimenoj kun 3 opcioj pri grandeco. :) mi ankoraŭ ne decidis, kiun kolrimenon mi aĉetos, sed la alia sennoma homo de Fae tre ŝatas ĉi tion. hmmm...... mi supozas, ke tio estas bona, sed mi ankoraŭ serĉadas aliajn. 

p.s. thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my previous entry about the flood. thankfully the flooding didn't get quite as bad as was predicted in Brisbane, but still tens of thousands of homes and businesses are flooded, including the HQ of RSPCA Queensland. thankfully they were able to evacuate all of the animals at the shelter to safe foster homes, but a lot of work lies ahead in the weeks/months to come....


  1. Oh, they have lots of pretty collars. I like the pink one with tiny white skulls!

  2. You might look at Beastie Bands, I like them because they are soft, and come in so many fab patterns and are cut-to-fit adjustable.

  3. I love love love HiTide Creations' braided kangaroo leather collars. Sally will make you a custom collar with whatever colours you like.

    I posted about them in my blog last year; they look great on the cats, they're comfortable, and they also don't wear their fur at all (I know Devons have fragile fur).

    She also made me a leash and harness for my Aby Jacoby.

  4. My favourite site for collars is here-
    I'm betting you could even email them to make a specific size if you wanted. I've got collars for my cat and two beagles from them and they're awesome.
