Why We Only Carry Breakaway Cat And Kitten Collars In Our Cat Store

Lunchbox Blue Bow Tie Cat Or Kitten Collar


Sea Waves flower cat or kitten breakaway collar


There are so many different types of cat and kitten collars on the market today. Cat owner’s have many styles to choose from for their pet cats.

At Hemingway’s Cat Boutique, we carry a large selection of unique cat and kitten collars; ranging from; bow tie, fabric, leather, swarovki and faux fur. But, one thing all of these collars have in common is that they are all “Breakaway, Safety or Quick release”.

The reason for this is we can never be too careful with our cats safety! We “get cats” here at Hemingway’s and believe regardless of how careful we are with our cats, they are still mischievous creatures-curious by nature. It would not take much for a cat to find himself in harms way and have his collar stuck on something and you not be around to rescue him/her.

Where we opened our online cat store last year, I was going through some of my designer catalogs to decide what product lines to carry.  Something took me back to an experience a friend of mine had with one of her cats 10 or more years ago. She loved her cat but did allow him outside during the day when she was at work. ( she lived in the country and it was normal at the time). She had a garage adjacent to her home with a kitty door. The garage was equipped with an air unit so kitty could go into the garage any time and be comfortable.

One day my friend came home from work and could not find her cat. She called for him but he did not come. She went looking in the garage through boxes and any where a cat would like to hide. She did finally find him but unfortunately he had passed away. He had gotten his collar caught on a chair and had choked to death. It was a very sad day for her and I remember her calling me as if it were yesterday.

If her cat had been wearing a breakaway/safety collar that day, This tragedy would never have happened.

So when shopping our cat only shop, you can be rest assured that all of the collars we carry have this extra layer of protection with them.

It is a little something we can do to make the world a safer place for the felines that we love!

Mystery The Persian Cat Needs Your Help!


Hey fellow cat lovers,

We are sharing this story with all of you in hopes we can help Mystery’s Mom raise the needed money for all the medical procedures needed to get her back on track.

Here is her Mom’s story:
The short,

Mystery, Persian needs a facial reconstruction after being found a month after she had gone missing. The image shown here is one I took yesterday which shows major healing and improvement over where we started just 9 days ago. She’s fought infection and swelling, and is now eating. She has no nose- we need to rebuild her one, so that she can live and breathe safe.

The detailed:

On New Year’s Eve, My Persian Mystery, an indoor only kitty somehow ended up outside. After much rethinking this out, I believe she walked out the front door onto the porch while I was talking to the mailman holding the door open, he came very late that day. Mystery is a curious kitty and quite friendly. I think my girl most likely followed the mailman to some point once I shut the actual door. I have MS and because of my MS- I can’t see anywhere except directly in front of my eyes. I can not see any surrounding areas as most people- I have no peripheral view at all.

I put out posters, flyers, and even knocked on doors. I searched people’s yards, their sheds, and even their window sills. We walked our neighborhood and drove it daily, sometimes multiple times each day in search for Mystery. I searched the pound and called Animal Control each and every week, keeping new flyers posted fresh in everyone’s mind. I posted to vets, groomers, lost and founds, ect., weekly. I scanned the groups twice daily in search of Mystery. The list goes on and on for all that I did to find my baby, I refused to believe she wasn’t coming home.

Each day as my faith and trust in God grew stronger;  I knew she was soon to be home in my arms. I BELIEVED and never gave up.

Then an amazing thing happened! On January 31st, Animal Control was called to pick up an injured animal seen a little over 2 miles from my home. The officer immediately recognized my girl from flyers posted in the lost and found from her markings, for her face was a bloody mess and unrecognizable. He brought her to my front door, he became my hero that day!.

Looking into her face, wondering if she even had a face through the bloody fur, I cried tears of many mixed emotions.

The big news, SHE WAS ALIVE! We rushed to the ER Vet where she stayed a few days before being transferred to a Specialty Clinic in Richmond VA.  Based on her condition, it was obvious she had been outside during the entire month on her own for she was skin and bones.

The Vets shared, the bloody trauma happened within 12-18 hours of being found as per the timeline seen in her face.

Once the infection was under control we had a CT scan: Here is what we found…the skull was ok, however her head, and face showed multiple bite marks, puncture wounds and the right side of her face was ripped off from the top on the nose going down the right side, under the eye and to the top right side of her lip. Her jaw and teeth are good, even though there is much bruising.  Her eye area is too swollen to be able to determine the condition of the eye at this time. Her nose – gone! We’re not certain what attacked her.

She needs facial reconstruction and I’m not certain just how many surgeries will be required. Every day she looks better in her healing process. She is a fighter and has so much spunk it’s nothing short of the grace of God she’s home and healing.

So far Mystery survived the outdoors, crossing over a major highway, flooding, deep snow, below freezing temperatures, lack of food/water and then being attacked during the long month of being lost.
Her blood values came back remarkable, her infection is under control, her skin tissue is starting to heal, and she’s even trying to eat hard food. She is an amazing kitty!

I’ve never asked for help before like this…. I just do not even know what this entire procedure will end up costing, today I marked what has been spent up to this date to include my first surgical estimate on Tuesday upcoming… I’ve been told that this could possibly run up to about 10-12K. I know some of you may say…she’s a cat, but to me- this is my girl, my heart, my love. I have to do what is right in my heart. I have to be able to live with myself. To be able to do this- I must do all that I am able.

May God bless anyone reading my story and double bless anyone who can help us. Just think, if 1000 people can donate a minor $10.00, We’d be in our final goal.

Gofundme will take 5%, I feel this is fair for the software and service. However, if you desire to help via a paypal…my paypal is purrinlot @ – no spaces

With love and faith, I thank you in advance, Laura

Here is the flyer her mom posted of her when she went missing.. Such a Gorgeous girl!


This story touched me deeply and I have been following it since she went missing. She looks so much like my Maxwell who will be 17 this year.

Please if you can afford to give her a donation, I know she would appreciate it. The cost of the vet bills are going to be steep considering the amount of injury done to this sweet angel.

Below is the link to her GoFund Me Page. Please note that she has posted a picture of Mystery’s injuries. It is hard to see but shows the extent of her injuries and why she desperately needs our help.

Thank you so much for reading and donating what you can.

God bless!

The Purrfect Dish For Persian Cats

I understand firsthand how hard it can be to find the right feeding dish for a Persian Cat or Exotic Short Hair Breed. I have a 17 year old Persian Cat named Maxwell who is my world.

Persians are magnificent cats. They are loving, loyal, regal like and stunningly gorgeous.

They also easily suffer from what is called Whisker Stress.

Basically, Whisker Stress occurs when a Persian Cat eats out of any dish that is deep. Whisker Stress is caused when the cat’s sensitive whiskers touch the sides of the bowl.

Whiskers play an enormous role in our kitties lives. Whiskers act as feelers for our kitties, cautioning them to their surroundings.
At the end of each whisker, receptors send a message to the cats nervous system and brain. These receptors are very sensitive, alerting your cat and assisting them when they move from place to place.

The Whiskers Stress Free Dish is the purrfect solution for this common problem with our Persian and flat faced feline family members.

The wide, shallow, ceramic dish that comes with this feeder is designed to reduce whisker stress.



The Whiskers Stress Free Cat Dish is water resistant as well as dishwasher and microwave safe.

It is available in three colors: Black, White and Gray.
