Wunderpurr greetings fabulous furiends

Welcome to our first review of 2022 and we love what we've got to show mew!

Today we're sharing one of our *sponsored posts from the pawesome peeps at...

...who asked if we'd like to try their fabulous feline collars for cool cats, and of course who could say no to that!

So let's show mew what was in the box.

What's In The Box ©BionicBasil® Cool Cat Collars - Spearmint - Pistachio - Ginger Marmalade Velvet Collars

We received three beautiful velvet collars, and the colours from left to right are:

Spearmint   ~   Pistachio   ~   Ginger Marmalade

Check out all the gorgeous velvet collar range by clicking here.

Melvyn can be summoned from a deep sleep at the opposite end of the house by the sound of a jingly bell, and the moment he heard the P.A. unwrapping these and the lovely jingle jingle sound, there was a loud thump from upstairs as he launched himself off the bed, and hurtled along the landing, down the stairs towards the kitchen and 2.5 seconds later, he arrived and hopped on the table ready for action.

He wasted no time at all, and choose the gorgeous pistachio green collar and insisted he must model it immediately.

The Catwalk Show:

Today's models are Melvyn of course and Fudge.

As Melvyn arrived first and got first dibbs on the colours.

The pistachio is a divine shade of olive green and really brings out the colour of Melvyn's eyes.

The spearmint colour is a stunning shade of aqua, and looks beautiful against Fudge's epic orangeness!

The Ginger Marmalade is a rich, zesty orange and looks fabulous on Melvyn.

Fudge was a little hissed off here when he noticed Melvyn in the ginger marmalade collar, and said, "Dude, that's mine, it's even named after me, so let's swap!"

Melvyn was delighted to swap as that meant he then got the pawsome spearmint one to wear! MOL

What We Thought:

Cool Cat Collars are beautifully made, fully adjustable with a quick-release break-away safety buckle and have a very nice jingly bell, which can be removed if mew want. They are handmade in the UK by the Cool Cats Collars team.

  The inside of the collar is lined with a durable webbing for extra strength and the outer velvet is made from a really plush, velvet ribbon, they look and feel rather luxurious, and when we checked their website, they have 24 different colours in the velvet range, so everypawdy's colour preferences are catered for; there's a whole rainbow fest happening, so even the fussiest feline is certain to find the purrfect collar!

They have lots of other designs in their online shop, and we really adore the Superhero range, plus they have ID tags, harnesses and toys, so plenty of goodies to get your mittens on.

Cool Cat Collars have also very kindly given our epic readers a 20% discount code which can be used against all collars on their website, and it's valid until the end of February 2022.


So if mew need a new collar, we can't recommend a better buy than these.


We would like to say a special thanks to the pawesome peeps at Cool Cat Collars for giving us the opportunity to try out their amazing collars ~ THANK MEW FURRY MUCH!
