Back to the drawing board

I had to re-think the paper collars. They kept coming off. I don’t know if it was Jasmine or the cheap tape or what. So I bought some fabric:
I was so focused on trying to find orange, pink, and green, that I didn’t even notice the words on the orange fabric until I got home! (They were rolled up in skinny tubes.)

Then I got out the sewing machine to experiment. The first ones were too skinny — the velcro wouldn’t hold. So I made them thicker:

The lower yellow spot is a colour dot on the towel underneath them!

But at last night’s weigh in I noticed that Bee Balm has a white chin!! It’s the tiniest patch but it’s something. And he’s the smallest. So he and Lotus are now both collar free.

Bonus Lotus picture — snuggled into mom. Lotus is now 50g bigger than the next biggest kitten!!

    • Really easy. I just folded the fabric strips in such a way that it was one seam up the side. Then I used (non-toxic) fabric glue to put the velcro on (I didn’t think self-stick velcro would hold). Easy-peasy. And adjustable. And hopefully they’ll be washable (the non-toxic glue may not hold as well) so I can save them for re-use.
