We’ve written about how important it is to purchase pet name tags for your dogs, but it’s just as important to buy tags for your cats, as well. Even if you have a strictly indoor cat or your cat travels in a carrier, there’s a chance that they could escape while you aren’t looking.
In this post, we’ve put together a list of online stores where you can purchase pet name tags for cats. We’ll also share some basic tips on what to include on your cat’s pet tag.
Online pet supply stores
If you want to browse a wide selection of pet name tags for cats (and other cat products), online pet stores are a great place to start your search. Digital pet shops like, Chewy, sell numerous brands of pet tags in all kinds of shapes, colors, sizes, and materials. You can find pet name tags with your favorite sports teams, special tags for support animals, and much more.
Etsy is the go-to online marketplace for unique and customized goods. Here are a few of the Etsy stores that offer unique and personalized cat tags.
This shop sells customized jewelry for humans, as well as stylish pet name tags for cats and dogs. One of their most popular cat tags is sold as a pendant (in silver, gold, or rose gold) and attached to a leather collar.
MurphyandMax offers custom cat tags in a variety of shapes and colors, so you can choose a design that suits your cat. Choose from fun laser-cut tag shapes, including sharks, tacos, pineapples, and U.S. states.
These beautifully designed cat tags look more like bracelet charms than pet tags. You’ll find dozens of cute styles, with hearts, flowers, and animals imprinted along with your pet’s name.
Local pet stores
If you’re short on time or don’t need a unique pet tag, you might find it more convenient to visit your nearest pet store to get one printed. Some chain pet stores offer self-service engraving kiosks where you can print pet name tags yourself, while others will do it for you.
Information to include on your pet name tags
Designing your cat’s tag is a fairly straightforward process, but there are some important pointers to keep in mind before buying one.
While having your cat’s name on his or her tag is an obvious piece of information to include, it’s not the most vital thing you should include. In fact, when it comes to pet name tags, your name and contact information is actually more important than your pet’s.
If your pet gets lost or runs away, the person who finds him or her should be able to reach you as soon as possible. Otherwise, they might have to take your furry friend to the vet for a microchip reading. While designing your tag, make sure your name and cell phone number are clearly printed so you can get your cat home quickly.
No matter which style of pet tag you choose, make sure you purchase it before you adopt your cat. Without a tag, you could run the risk of your cat running away without any identification.
