Kiwi Cat Collar Cover
Kiwi Cat Collar Cover
Weather resistant New Zealand made anti-predation cat collar covers.
Help out native NZ wildlife by making your cat visible when they are outside.
"I feel like every single cat should be wearing one of these if they are outside to reduce the amount of birds they catch" This statement still stands 7 years later. I started Kiwi Cat Collars in 2015 when I was a student and a new mum who was home all day with the baby. I was dismayed by the amount of birds and skinks my cat was catching. I went down a rabbit hole of scientific papers trying to work out how I could do better to keep the wildlife in my backyard safe. In 2015 I couldn't find any sort of "anti-predation" cat collar cover in New Zealand, so my mother-in-law and I designed our own. I still sew these in our home today, the kids will be able to do it soon enough! The feedback and the positive reviews on their efficacy keeps me going. I stand by my commitment to get every single outdoor cat in New Zealand to wear a Kiwi Cat Collar cover and a bell. If you want to make your own collar at home for free, from items you have around the house, check out this video I made in 2017 teaching families how to DIY Kiwi Cat Collars.
Made from weather resistant canvas. Each will vary as they are all hand cut and hand made.
