♥ GentleCat© – Safety Collars for Cats, who go outside – custom-made ♥
☆ The Original © – with a ❤ heart-velcro-closure, that opens easily in case of danger and a large address field inside the Collar. ☆
The ☆ Safety-Collars for Cats, who go free outside ☆ are hand- and custom-made, in standard sizes, in various price categories, materials, with pendants and as a „friendship“ bracelet in the same design for the cat owner.
The brand ♥ GentleCat© ♥ was designed and developed for several months by myself. Velcro hearts on the ends are durable and designed to last, but will definitely open easily in case of danger (getting stuck).
Unfortunately, this is often not the case with “normal“ commercially available “safety“ Collars. A small mechanical change or disturbance, e.g. a grain of sand or the plasticizer coming out of the buckle, can prevent the collar from opening and the cat can seriously injure themselves. A vet conducted experiments with standard collars on a pole with a luggage scale, it took over 19 kilograms of traction until the collar opened – impossible for a cat to break free if it gets stuck. This video of the veterinarian (I would like to send you the link if you were interested) was my inspiration to create GentleCat © – namely to develop cat collars with an address field, with which free-running cats can not hurt themselves.
It was important for me to have a large address field for the telephone number, because I was reunited with my cat again, she had a collar with an address on it, when she climbed into a craftsman’s car and drove over 10 kilometre. Especially important in rural areas where there is not always a chip reader on site.
I am self-employed in animal welfare, have 4 dogs and 4 cats and for me GentleCat © is my heart and passion.
As a graduated graphic designer, I was able to combine my skills and my project and concerns well.
♥ 100% of each collar sale goes to Animal Welfare. ♥

There are two different categories:
The ♥♥♥ „HOUSE BRAND“ GentleCat © ♥♥♥,
printed with own cat design:
These straps are very soft, silky, lightweight and durable, scratch resistant, and waterproof.
The outer band is always printed and there is space for the address inside, an important unique feature of my brand.
It consists entirely of a skin-friendly acetate-silk blend fabric, which you can write well on with a ballpoint pen the phone number or address.
It’s important to me that everyone can afford a GentleCat © collar,
The “private label“ GentleCat © is available from 5 Euro.
These Collars are only in my Etsy-Shop available.
Furthermore, there is the exclusive GentleCat © variant,
the ♥♥♥ series „COSMOPOLIT“ * ♥♥♥:
Collars from the most beautiful, noble jacquard loom band
from Germany, Belgium, Austria, Ukraine, England, France, USA and India.
These Ribbons are different robust and “scratch-resistant“, which I have noted in the individual tapes.
Manufacturing hand- and custom-made for your cat,
· Precious, high quality, previously tested jacquard loom band from
around the world,
· A printed, inscribable inner band made of acetate-silk blend fabric,
· Three attached brass eyelets,
· The engraved heart pendant made of old brass,
· The leather accessories with push button
(inside with a sticker “address inside“)
have their price, but you will definitely be thrilled, the collars are real trinkets.
The printed internal band made of acetate-silk blend fabric is conditionally waterproof, which affects the adhesive force between the two bands. If you want it absolutely waterproof, there is an inside-Ribbon alternative made of cotton for the same price.
This robust cotton Inside-Ribbon in “Maize yellow“, “Aqua Green“ and „Red“ with strong adhesive power are not printed, but depending on the size of the band with a small or elongated sticker provided. You can also label the cotton inner bands well.
The printed acetate silk-blend inner band is only available up to a collar size of 27 cm, for longer collars I use the above mentioned Cotton sweatband.
Your cat becomes a Cat-Queen or a Cat-King 😉 with the GentleCat © Safety-Collars, with my ribbons, you can show your cat a special appreciation.
The cat, when they go out, is no longer a “normal“ cat, people who meet her know immediately that she has a home and is special to their owners.
One important thing I ask you to note:
If you have a cat that scratches their neck and constantly scratches it, the tapes will not hold up in the long run, unfortunately they are not suitable.
In normal use of already cat collar habitual cats, the collars remain in good condition for a long time.
My 4 cats (as well as other cats from friends) have tested the collars for several months. Please never put the leather-accessoires over the closure, because in danger the closure does not open then!
HOW TO MEASURE THE NECK:
☆☆☆ Please measure your cat’s neck circumference with a tailor’s measure as follows:
The narrow neck circumference plus two, maximum three fingers wide “air space“ – it should not be too loose, so that your cat can not pull it over the head. Please tell me this closed measure, as it is the best for your cat – then you get it tailored by myself (I will add the measure for the closure).
The exchange is not possible with tapes made to measure. ☆☆☆
The width of the GentleCat © Safety-Collars is always about 2 cm, they do not cut through it.
For the cat owner there is a friendship bracelet in the same design as the collar of your cat available – made to measure for 8,50 Euro (only in my Etsy-Shop available).
The most important thing for me is that your cat, who go outside
with GentleCat© is
-> the collar opens easily in danger (getting stuck) and inside is the address and
☆ even *MORE BEAUTIFUL*
-> Everybody can see, that the Cat has a home and is something special for their owner
explore the world! ♥
Warm, animal-friendly greetings in the sense of „My home is, where my cat is.“
