Our Story

"Our cats hate collars and lose them constantly. We've given up and got them microchipped instead."

Us, three years ago! 

Sound familiar?! Our cats used to hate wearing collars and would lose so many, that in the end we just gave up - and figured they were microchipped instead. But when our youngest cat Lola went missing for three days, we learned that a microchip could only help her if she ended up at a vet's where it could be scanned:

“Microchips are a good back-up option for pet identification, but should never be the main one... If [your pet] wanders off, it’s likely to be a private citizen who encounters them first. That’s why, in the event of accidental separation, identification tags are your pet’s first ticket home.”

The Humane Society

As soon as we got Lola back, we decided to make a breakaway collar and ID tag that cats would enjoy wearing (= no trying to escape) and that fit them like a glove (= less risk of snaggling and coming off). 

After months of testing, we developed the Supakit breakaway cat collar, made of lightweight yet strong natural materials that feel - and most importantly smell - right to a cat. For the first time ever our cats wore their collars happily and managed to keep them on! Before long, word spread, and in 2016 we opened our online store to offer our unique collars, and later harnesses, to cats on all four corners of the globe.

Supakit Cat Collars and Cat Harnesses

Today, all of our products are designed in our London studio, and are made by hand in Spain (you can see some photos above of the amazing town where they are made, and the skilled artisans who pour so much love into making them).

You'll only ever find Supakit products available to buy direct from us on our website (and our Etsy store), because aftercare is very important to us. We want you to know that we're on hand, any time, to help your lovely cat get the very best from their Supakit accessory.  

If you'd like to get in touch, please send us an email at hello@supakit.co. It would be wonderful to hear from you!
