Cat collar for cat with fat/stubby neck.......

After the Katrina pet disaster I've decided it was time for my indoor only kitties to wear collar/tags to identify them if they are ever in a situation where they need to be identified.
So, I went out and got collars and tags for both of them. That was about a month ago.
Calypso has adjusted well to her collar, it did take a little time for her to get used to it.
Korbel is another story. I noticed earlier today that her neck is full of scabs all around the collar area, one is actually pretty big-about the size of a dime. I think the problem is that she has a fat stubby neck so the collar rides up on her up by the ears and is uncomfortable.
Does anyone have a cat with a fat/stubby neck that wears a collar? If so, which collar worked best for you.

Mellie still won't wear a collar, but Rocket and Tommy are wearing them (in black.)

Thanks Tim I'll have to get some of those. It seems like that would work better because they would just roll rather than rub.

M&T, no they're not microchipped-I should do that also though. But the tags are more easily readible for the average Joe on the street. But the dogs have both, I'm not sure why I never got the cats done.

When we had Boris here, we had to buy dog collars for him, because none of the cat ones were large enough.

Jennifer I know the Humane Society in Tucson lets you walk in and they will chip them right then. No waiting on appointments for it. Plus they are the cheapest in town and use the universal one.

Tim collars look like they might work for you. I have the yellow tag on mine for the chip info on the collar with the 1-800 # with all my info.
