I have been wanting to get some collars and tags for the cats at my house for a long time and have been pricing them at pet stores. Even at a volume purchase they are still very expensive.
But recently I found the collars pictured above at a grocery store nearby at one euro each. They are nice, too, being very soft, and with a clasp instead of a buckle, which I like.
Best of all, which I didn't even notice until one night driving up to the house, headlights on, they have reflective material sewn into the bands.
The grocery store only had five, but I bought them all. I am hoping they will bring in some more.
Since they were pink, I gave them to five of the girls who spend all or most of their time outside: Giblet, Bette, Minnow, Krystallo, and Cindy. I tried to put one on Mandy but she wasn't having it. Maybe she will have a change of heart.
( I don't have a picture of Krystallo in hers yet, in fact, I think she is dining at the neighbors this weekend - at least I hope that is where she is )

A kind person sent in a 20 dollar donation this month and this is what I did with part of it. I will save the rest to buy more collars when I can find some. Hopefully they will have some blue ones for the boys!
To the kind lady who donated the money, I thank you. Twenty dollars can go a long way for the cats. I appreciate your heart.
My hope is it will protect them and keep them a little safer.
