About our products

We believe it’s a good idea for cats who venture outside independently (or like to escape when they shouldn’t) to wear collars. Even if they’re microchipped, a collar shows other people that your cat has a loving home. Paired with an I.D. tag, it’s your cat’s passport to getting help if ever it needs some.

It’s important that they are comfortable in their collar. We try to ensure this is the case by using quality materials. Our fabric collars are made from practical, hardwearing fabrics in a range of colours to suit your cat. All collars are made with metal rings and rivets, a breakaway buckle for safety and come with a bell—which can be removed should you not want to use it.

We’re always working to develop new accessories to add to our range, so keep an eye on our social media or join our mailing list for updates.

Sarah Kirkbride, owner of Tabby Ties, Leeds

Hi, I'm Sarah!

Alongside running Tabby Ties, I'm also a part-time graphic designer. I've been sewing and creating for 20 years, making things for myself and my daughter and now for my very tolerant tabby cat, Violet.

I started Tabby Ties to offer affordable, well-designed collars for cats, and because I've always wanted to create and run a retail brand of my own. It allows me to combine some of my skills and passions—branding, digital design, sewing and cats.

Each and every sale means the world to small businesses such as this one and we appreciate your support—thank you for shopping small!
