Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

Dogs seem to get a lot of attention, including a lot of print coverage by me. And when it comes to bling-bling, dogs are way ahead of the retail game. Frankly, I don’t think cats care that dogs get to wear booties and rain jackets. If you look into your cat’s eyes, he probably thinks it’s too silly for him to even consider such an outfit. And what cat goes out in the rain anyway?

Lately, the tide has turned and kitties are getting the fashion attention they deserve, with collars and trinkets worthy of their discerning taste. And if you like retro fabrics, buckle up with the new Cat Collars at Lucky Fiona www.luckyfiona.etsy.com. Custom made (would any cat demand any less) with your choice of not only the fabrics, but also the charms. Hearts, fishes and the traditional tinkley bell can be added to the collar, even a mere dog figurine. Retro fabric styles range from graphic prints to flowers, as well as whimsical chickens, cherries and shoes, with trinkets to match no less.

Previously offering only dog collars, the new all fabric Cat Collars uses the same great quality — lined with webbing, triple stitched at stress points, with high quality hardware. Feline antics are the norm, and the folks of Lucky Fiona are parents of two lovely cats, so they know what kind of high jinks mischief they can get into. So the cat collars will pop open if too much pressure is put upon the buckle, a safety feature to avoid any mishaps if a kitty gets their collar stuck on something.

Lucky Fiona has a wide range of choices, from the Spring Chicken to Cherry Jubilee, fabrics that are available for both the dog and cat collars. But we know how finicky cats can be. So chat with the owners to get exactly what you want. Just click on the Contact tab on their site — I was surprised at how quickly I received a response. In no time at all, your fat cat can be phat!
