    I'm picking up my baby next week and I think I have everything ready. I've been looking for collars. What kind do you use? This will be my first sphynx and I was thinking a typical nylon collar may be uncomfortable agains thier skin. I was looking for the kinda the has sherpa lining. Any ideas? I see some really cute pics of some kitties with bead like necklaces. Where do you get them?

    Thanks for any help.

    Elvis doesn't have a collar. He will be getting microchipped in case he needs to be identified, but no collar. It worries me too much! But he does have a soft, mesh type harness that he wears at least once a day for going outside or just to get used to it! :)
    Good luck with your new baby!

    We don't use any collars. I think that if you leave them on too long, it may irritate their skin; even with soft ones. We only use a harness for outings. So if you decide to get one I would recommend to only use it for "special" occasions. There are some pretty cool ones around though, ilovemysphynx even makes unique ones you can buy here on the Lair!

    Lucifer is also chipped so he can always be identified if he ever escaped.

      We do not use a collar on a regular basis but we do have a harness I will keep in the truck when we travel in case I have to take them out to go potty. When staying in our RV camping I always use a breakaway collar during the day "just in case" with a tag that has my cell phone on it but take it off at night once the doors are closed and no more coming and going.

      I don't use a collar for Marley, only when we go out for walks, in case, heaven forbid, she ever got out of her harness.

      both my boys just wore a regular breakaway collar with a bell when they first got here so i could get used to their personalities but they don't wear them now.

      We don't use collars to much but do use necklärs (found here) for dress up time and to look fancy when company comes! Sphynx Lair Store Front

      We don't use collars we actually baught them each one before they came home but they have never had them on. They are both micro chiped and have mesh harnesses they wear if they go out ( with iditification tags and rabbies tags attached). They also are in their stroller when they go out for extra paranoid mommy (thats me :BigSmile:) piece of mind.

      i bought one regular with swarowski rhinestones and was disapointed as i get my cat. the regular cat collar are to big. my little angel has a very filigran neck.

      I looking for a fitting color but do not found some realy glamours. I bought a flexible pearlwristband hat fittigung great and looks nice.. a flexible rhinston sadly no fitting good its a bit to tight. I want bought now a wristband from swarowski but sadly its not in the onlien store at the moment....

      it´s funny but real cat collars realy too big seams like 25 cm and my cat has only 17 cm ( and in there is centimeter more for space )


      But mostimes i agree with the other a colloar is only a thing for pictures not for the complete day.

      i will chip mine too because regualr she not wearing collars

      I don't use collars either, I only pop on pretty or fun ones at Xmas/ birthdays etc.They get so much filth on them only being on a short time and it would worry me if they got caught up even wearing a safety collar. Better safe then sorry.
