We're Cheshire & Wain

Meet Mr Peter Wells or Percy for short "He's the silver-spotted British Shorthair that inspired the start of Cheshire & Wain back in 2013. When I began shopping for the necessary cat product paraphernalia to welcome baby Percy into his new home, I found I was often disappointed by the quality and aesthetic of what was available. My main frustration was trying to find high quality, leather cat collars which are also safe for a cat to wear. All the leather collars that I came across had elastic instead of the vet recommended breakaway catch - I wanted to change that!"

Leather Safety Collars

In 2013 leather collars with breakaway buckles simply didn't exist, and so we had to design one from scratch! It took over six months, multiple iterations and material testing to finalise our leather safety collar design. Over the last nine years we have refined our original design as a result of extensive customer (and kitty) feedback to create the Cheshire & Wain products of today.

Meet Penelope

Because one cat is never enough!

In 2019 we welcomed a new addition to our cat family, Miss Penelope Agatha Wells.
She keeps me on my toes with her boundless energy and joyful curiosity. She joins Percy as an official Cheshire & Wain model and co-chief of product testing and approval. My own cats as well as our fabulous kitty customers remain a constant source of inspiration: their love, intelligence and mystic spirit know no bounds.
