Moving to a new boat has meant that Lyra’s collar tag was no longer up to date, so I had a new one made for her. While I was at it, I found, Kitty Collars, a site which personalises collars too. So Lyra now has a fetching yellow collar with ‘NARROWBOAT WILLOW’* written on it as well as my number. Hopefully this will make it very clear that she’s a boat cat not a stray lost by the river. (We did once get a call saying “we’ve found your cat, she’s by the river!”) I could have written it in pen on some elastic, but Lyra doesn’t tend to lose collars and this one was not too expensive. Plus it’s got a safety catch in case she gets caught anywhere.
*I know it should be ‘narrow boat’ not ‘narrowboat’, because Willow is historic, but there weren’t enough characters so I had to sacrifice historical accuracy to make sure that the important bits fitted!
