LOVE this. Can't believe I forgot to leave a review. She was wonderful to work with on ordering too! She sent me the wrong package on accident and let me keep them and resent me my original order as well. She's just awesome and her work is amazing!

Even after a minor mixup, the wonderful seller sent me the collars so quickly! Always kept in touch and promptly answered me back. Such a delight to work with and definitely would purchase again! The collars are well made and stretchy enough to comfortably fit any size cat. Highly recommend. Customer service and products were fantastic!

About

I knit totally rad collars for geeky kitty cats.

Several years ago I decided that I wanted to teach myself how to knit. Knitting a sweater or blanket seemed a bit ambitious for a first project, so I knitted a collar for my kitty, Sir Winston. He has pretty refined taste, but he seemed to like it. So, I made collars for every kitty and dachshund I knew. Then my mother-in-law told me about etsy. I checked it out and took the plunge. But at that time, I was only making cutesy collars and they didn't really sell. I've always been a big Star Trek fan, so my husband suggested I make trekkie collars. That was the inspiration I needed!

I began making pop culture collars and sales as well. My collars aren't necessarily practical, but neither are dog sweaters! They're meant to be a fun accessory for silly kitties. The practical ones are so boring and ugly, anyways. And I really love thinking up silly collars for different cat personalities. Sir Winston really enjoys modeling for me and he begins to yodel when he sees the camera come out. I also adopted another kitty, Cheese. He helps with the fashion labor and treat eating. Although he doesn't have the poses down as well as Winston.

Welcome to Fürbuttons! I use a wide array of high quality yarns and durable buttons for my collars. I want my collars to be fashionable and comfortable for the kitty or doggy. I will usually knit collars to about 8.5 to 9 inches in length and the widths will vary with different types of yarns.

Cat neck sizes vary:
Junior Cat/Growing Cat: 6-9 inch neck
Adult: 8-11 inch neck

Toy Dog: 6-9 inch neck
Small Doggy: 9-12 inch neck

Please, please measure you pet's neck before you make your purchase. My collars may be stretchy because they are knit, but they are not adjustable.

How To Measure Kitty's Neck:

It is pretty easy to measure your kitty's neck, especially if you bribe the kitty with treats! Make sure your kitty's head is up when you measure at the base and above the shoulders. When your kitty is relaxed with his/her neck down, you will get a smaller measurement. You do not want the collar to be too tight, making it hard for kitty to swallow. But, you also do not want it too loose...You want a collar, not a gag or a hula hoop. I will specify the measurements with each listing to help you make an educated decision. :)

I hope you find a collar that fits your pet's personality and neck. Happy hunting!

Payment
I accept Paypal and credit cards. If I do not receive payment from you within 4 business days, I will assume you no longer want to proceed with the purchase and I will cancel your order through Etsy. Thanks!
Shipping
I will ship your collar first class mail and tracking. I ship within 1-3 business days upon confirmation of payment. I'm pretty quick. Sometimes same day shipping.

Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with your collar, please let me know and I will try to work a little magic! I will definitely make sure we are both happy campers and I am very friendly and fair. If your collar arrives broken, please send a picture to me with a message. If your collar doesn't make it to you, please refer to your tracking number before leaving negative feedback or canceling your order. The situation may be remedied quite easily. Feedback is very, very important to me and I want to make sure you and your feline friend both love your FürButtons collar! So, please email if you have any issues or you just want to tell me how awesome your kitty looks!
Additional policies and FAQs
Although I love custom orders, I can not take any crazy obscure or personalized orders at this time. I am making some major shop changes right now. But, I will hopefully be able to accommodate you in the near future. If you see a collar that has been sold and you are wondering if I can make another for your kitty, just email me. If you are wondering if I have a collar that references your favorite cartoon or movie, but don't see it in my shop, there is a chance I can make it for you. The only collar I absolutely will not knit, under any circumstances, is a hamster collar. Not because they are too tiny, but because hamsters are rude and inconsiderate of other people's feelings. And they have beady little eyes too... So don't ask. Because I won't do it. Ever.

Care Instructions: If your kitty is naughty and the collar gets dirty, you may gently clean the collar with a damp cloth and allow the collar to air dry. If your kitty is really naughty, you needn’t burn the collar. Just gently hand wash the collar in a sink with a gentle cleanser. Try not to submerge the button part of the collar underwater for too long. Allow to air dry. If you wash the collar too often or too vigorously, the yarn will felt. You may want to do this and think it looks cool. :) Washing may also cause some shrinkage, but you can gently stretch the collar back out before putting it back on kitty. If your collar is just a little hairy, you can always attack it with a lint roller to clean it up a bit!
