Doesnâ??t break away.
I am only giving one star because I have to in order to submit a review. This is not the first Coastal collar to fail at easily, or otherwise, breaking away but it is the first one to nearly choke my cat to death. He got it caught on something in the house that pulled the top portion of the adjustable length through the bucket and tightened the collar around his neck. Not only did the collar not break loose we couldnâ??t get it off of him. No matter how hard we tried. We ended up cutting it off of him. I feel lucky that he was inside with us because had he been outdoors we may not have found him in time. The first collar we had for him also was extremely difficult to pull open. I thought it was just dirty as he was an outside cat at the time but that clearly is not the case. He is inside only and the collar is only two months old. I love the patterns and that they are light weight but I will not purchase from this company until they resolve this life threatening issue.
