This is such a cute cat collar! I may have to try to get these on my own cats. They do not wear collars, so I am not sure how they will take having something like this on, but I think it is so cute that I want to try! It really is so beautiful!

This pattern is soooo easy and adorable! I have a neighbor who owns cats that we walk on leashes, and they will look so cute with this addition to their wardrobe. Thank you so much for this elegant yet simple pattern!
