This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
After I saw Charity's adorable ribbon collars, I just KNEW I had to make a collar! I wanted a bow however, so I started doing my research

This is the maxis collar, with the buckle replaced with a bow instead. It comes with the base and the mesh, and 14 recolors besides!

I have uploaded mesh only, mesh and recolors together, or recolors only.

The textures used are primarily mine but I did use the following in my recolors:

I have included two tone solids, polka dot, Christmas, Valentine's and "Spooky Day", red plaid which can also be used as Christmas, striped, velvets, and camo.

Known issues: On larger cats, there is some clipping. I included a picture showing mine compared to Maxis. Since this is the maxis collar, but with a bow attached instead of a buckle, it WILL have the same clipping issues as the maxis collar, in the same locations. Occasionally, the bow will also clip. The larger cats will have hair go through the collar, in certain positions especially. MUCH of this is a similar fault to the maxis one.

This upload naturally requires Pets.

These are buyable from the pet collar stand found in community lots for 49 simoleans or from items such as Monique's computer.

You can change the cat at the mirror by changing their appearance.

Very VERY cute! I love the placement of the bow, it's just where it should be. And the recolors are gorgeous! Some really nice combinations in there. Can't wait to go deck out all of my Sims' cats with these
