About

THE SUPAKIT STORY

"OUR CATS HATE COLLARS AND LOSE THEM CONSTANTLY. WE'VE GIVEN UP AND GOT THEM MICROCHIPPED INSTEAD."
- Us, three years ago!

Sound familiar?! It's fair to say that our journey to founding Supakit was born out of necessity and frustration! Our cats hated wearing collars, but we'd discovered during a close shave when one of them went missing, that all major cat care organisations recommend that indoor and outdoor cats wear a VISIBLE form of ID (not just a microchip).

Despairing of a solution, we set out on a mission to make a breakaway collar and ID tag that our cats would enjoy wearing (= no trying to escape) and that fit them like a glove (= less risk of snaggling and coming off).

After months of testing, we developed the Supakit breakaway cat collar, made of lightweight yet strong natural materials that feel - and most importantly smell - right to a cat. For the first time ever our cats wore their collars happily and managed to keep them on! Before long, word spread, and in 2016 we opened our Etsy store to offer our unique collars, and later harnesses, to cats on all four corners of the globe.

***

Today, all of our products are designed in our London studio, and are made by hand in Spain (you can see some photos above of the amazing town where they are made, and the skilled artisans who pour so much love into making them).

We want you to know that we're on hand, any time, to help your lovely cat get the very best from their Supakit accessory. If you'd like to get in touch, please send us an email at hello [!at] supakit.co. It would be wonderful to hear from you!

Frequently asked questions
I'm in a hurry! Can you ship any faster?

Absolutely! Just send us a message specifying what you want to order, and when you need it by and we'll let you know your options.

How do I choose the right size collar?

Choosing between an adult or kitten size collar is simple. The collar band on each is adjustable*, so the key thing is your cat's current weight, which determines which strength breakaway buckle you need.

If your cat is...

1. OVER 2.5kg / 5.5lbs then the ADULT collars are right for you

2. UNDER 2.5kg / 5.5lbs then the KITTEN collars are the perfect choice

Not sure how much your cat weighs? As a handy guide: 2.5kg / 5.5lbs = the weight of a family size bottle of soda

Still unsure? Send us a message and we'll be happy to advise!

* You can view our detailed sizing chart here: https://us.supakit.co/pages/shipping-faqs#collarfit

How do I adjust the collar length?

Adjusting the collar length is easy. Just gently feed the fabric or leather of the collar through the brass buckle, to extend or shorten the collar.

When fitting the collar, please make sure that you can slide two fingers ONLY between the collar and your cat. Don't leave your cat's collar any looser than this, as it will create a risk of it getting snagged on things in the environment, or getting stuck in your cat's mouth.

Our leather collars may stretch a little as they age naturally, so we recommend checking the fit from time to time.

How should I look after my collar?

Flea treatments: We recommend that you remove the collar when you are giving your cat their flea treatment, and do not replace it for 24 hours afterwards, as the chemicals used can cause damage to the collar.

Leather collars: Your leather collar is designed to soften and age naturally with time. However, if it is looking dry or faded, we recommend that you 'feed' the leather with a little 'dubbin' (this is an inexpensive traditional wax, available from most shoe repairers on the high street, or online).

To use the dubbin, clean any dirt from the collar with a lightly dampened cloth, then take a dry cloth, wipe it in the dubbin, then massage it gently into the leather of the collar, avoiding the non-leather parts.

What happens if the collar gets lost? Or my cat comes home without its collar?

Thankfully this is quite rare! We want our Supakit collars to stay with your cat through all of its adventures, so we have designed in a number of features to reduce collar losses:

1. Ultra slimline profile: Our collars mould to your cat's shape and sit flush to their body, reducing the risk of snags.

2. Most cats notorious for 'losing' their collars are actually deliberately escaping because they find them uncomfy! Our collars are designed to be so soft and lightweight that your cat won't even know it's there.

That said, collar losses do occasionally occur, and we regret that we cannot offer replacements. However, if you send us an email to hello@supakit.co, we will be happy to offer a discount for you when you reorder.

Can I use these collars with a lead?

I'm afraid these collars aren't compatible with a lead. The safety buckle on them is designed to break under force (i.e. when your cat has got snagged on something), and so they would come undone as your cat pulled away from the lead.

Are these collars suitable for kittens?

Our adult collars aren't, but we offer an exclusive kitten range - specially designed for kittens under 2.5kg in weight, with a safety breakaway buckle that will keep them safe.

My cat has never worn a collar before, can you give me any advice?

Most certainly! We have created a handy blog post for first-time collar introductions, so do take a look: https://supakit.co/blogs/news/collar-introduction

If you have any questions at all after reading, or need any advice once your collar has arrived, don't hesitate to get in touch and we'll be happy to guide you through the process!
