Most collars start at 7.5" but Petco has a collar 6"-8".

Bond and Co. Black and White Reflective Kitten Collar

Or maybe you could take a piece of cloth and wrap it around one area of the collar and secure it with a safety pin so it's too bulky to get off.

Thanks for clarifying, D. My concern is, while a microchip collar is a good idea for a self-feeder, and a break-away collar is safer so the cat doesn't get hung up on anything and strangle, the chip won't help if the collar is removed. And as you've found, cats are great escape artists! An embedded microchip, which is easily done at the Vet, will ensure that if your cat is lost, it can be read at a shelter or Vet's office and they'll have your contact information. And I believe you can also use it for the feeder, although you'd have to check out the brand to make sure.

We have 2 cats.
Both are kept collared.
They are outdoor/indoor cats that come and go as they want.
They both spend much time indoors.
They spend most of their time living on our lanai that is furnished and is a part of our living area, but outdoors.
They do spend much time outside in our yard and do a bit of traveling as it suits them.
They have made friends with neighbors and some of their pets and are welcomed regularly.

The collars keep their ID tags with their names, and our name, address and phone lumber.
Everyone knows they're ours.
They do loose their collars regularly.
Which they each do several times a year.
Sometimes they loose their collars elsewhere.
Lost collars often turn up inside our mailbox.

We keep a supply of collars and tags to replace the lost ones.
The tags are a bit more expensive as they do need to be engraved.
We order batches of each.

Keeping them collared is a bit of a problem.
But, it's a big plus in their safety, and our peace of mind.
