The reflective Cat-Life collar is perfect to keep your cat safe as it’ll be easier for people to spot your friend.
Additionally, it is the perfect collar to be used with our PetPointer GPS tracker as the special weight adjustable dial ensures it’s not too easy to lose the collar but it’ll still come off when necessary to protect your cat from getting stuck on the collar!
The CAT-LIFE® locking mechanism was developed in Switzerland. In contrast to conventional cat collars, the CAT-LIFE® safety break-away mechanism takes into account that the cat is a freedom-loving animal and therefore always runs the risk of getting stuck somewhere and injuring themselves if they do so. The task of a safety closure is to be released at the right moment. This moment really depends on the strength and the weight of an animal. Similar to a ski binding, the cat-life closure is individually adjusted to the animal. To optimize the setting, CAT-LIFE® differentiates between small and young animals (light blue version) and adult cats (yellow version).
The lock is delivered in the starting position (counter-clockwise), which corresponds to the minimum release weight of 2 kg (collar for kittens, blue), respectively 4 kg (collar for adults, yellow). Each mark further clockwise increases the trigger weight by 200 grams (note: from bottom right to bottom left there are 3 positions = 600 grams!).
The red dot means “locked”. In this position, the break-away mechanism is disabled.
The basic rule is that the release weight must not exceed the weight of the animal! If an animal hangs, it must be able to open the closure with their body weight without difficulty. If in doubt, adjust it to a lower setting than their actual weight.
For optimum safety, the length of the collar should be adjusted so that there is a finger gap between the cat’s neck and the band.
It is also possible to attach a name tag or similar to the collar.
