Pinky's Pet Gear Cat Collars are lightweight but sturdy and are very comfortable and not too stiff. Your Collar will be cut from the same fabric as shown in the photos. Because the fabric's pattern varies, the pattern on your Collar may be a bit different than what is shown. Cat Collars are 8" to 12" in length. If you need a different length, please let me know! I make my cat collars with safety buckles that will unlatch if your precious one gets it caught on something. Please do not use my cat collars for dogs, the safety buckle will unlatch if it is used with a leash, and your pup tugs on the leash. (If you would like a collar with this print for your tiny pooch, and the interfaced ribbon, just send me a convo, I can make one with the proper buckle!) SHIPPING INFO- I strive to make and ship your pet gear lickety split quick, which is 1-7 days after receiving payment :) I ship 1st Class U.S Postal Service. CARE INSTRUCTIONS- Wash in cold water, tumble dry low heat or lay flat to dry. Thanks for looking!
