Halloween cat collars are the quickest and easiest way to get your kitty to take part in the seasonal festivities. No need for your cat to hunt down their own spiders—these collars have ’em (along with pumpkins, ghosts, and bats) in abundance.
Treat Your Cat to a Collar
Cat collars are a great idea, no matter what the season. Keep your kitty safe with an ID tag or, if you have an outdoor kitty, equip them with a GPS or RFID tag so you can keep tabs on them. Collars with bells help keep the local birds safe too.
And, speaking of safety, the ASPCA has some tips for Halloween safety for your cat and other critters. Keep candies for people out of the reach of pets (especially chocolates and sugar-free candies with xylitol). Make sure your cat (especially curious kittens) can’t get at candles or other open flames. And, most importantly, keep cats in secure areas so they can’t dart out the door when trick-or-treaters or party guests arrive. Even cats accustomed to being outdoors can get frightened by Halloween activities.
Not all cats are willing to dress up in full Halloween costumes, but most are more than happy to switch their usual collar for a collar with a Halloween theme. We’ve scoured the shops to find some clever collars that will make your kitty the life of the Halloween party—or at least coordinate with your own Halloween finery.
