PLEASE USE THE ABOVE TABLE AS A GUIDE TO FIND YOUR CAT'S CHESHIRE & WAIN COLLAR SIZE. MEASURE YOUR CAT'S NECK TO CONFIRM YOU HAVE SELECTED THE CORRECT SIZE.

Use the below fitting guide to double-check your cat's measurement. 

  1. Wrap a tape measure around your cat's neck, allowing room to fit 1-2 fingers between tape measure and neck.
  2. Note down the measurement, which will be your cat's neck size. (If you don't have a tape measure - use a piece of string and a ruler)

If your cat already wears a collar that fits well, you can take it off and measure the inside circumference when it's fastened on the correct hole to find out your cat's neck size.

How to avoid unnecessary loss

When fitting your cat's collar, make sure it isn't too tight or too loose. There should be room to fit 1-2 fingers between the collar and your cat's neck for a snug fit. If there is a big enough gap for your cat to slip their paw underneath, they may be able to take the collar off. To prevent unnecessary loss, please ensure the collar is fitted correctly and that you select the correct size. Do not choose a larger size for your cat to grow into. 

If you're unsure about anything and need further assistance, don't hesitate to get in touch with us for advice. 

Cheshire & Wain collars are not suitable for kittens or cats that weigh less than 2.5kgs / 5.5lbs. We advise that your cat is at least 4 months old to wear a Cheshire & Wain collar unattended.
