What To Look For When You’re Buying a Cat Harness

Fortunately, there’s very little you need to worry about when you’re looking for a cat harness. It’s nevertheless worth spending a little time pondering the following areas:

  • Style
  • Comfort
  • Features

Style

The main decision you’ll face when you’re in buying mode is which type of harness would make the neatest fit for your kitty.

You can choose from the following harnesses:

  • H-style harnesses: This simple harness design wraps around your cat’s front legs and uses buckles or closures for security. Some cats might resist the thinner straps on this type of harness
  • Step-in harnesses: Get your cat to put both paws into the harness then secure it in position. The drawback with this type of harness is that security is compromised for comfort
  • Vest-style harnesses: The most secure but also the bulkiest type of harness, you’ll also find these harnesses put your kitty’s skin in contact with most fabric. With this style more than others, getting the right material is key

Comfort

Most cats will initially resist a harness. That’s only natural.

You can combat this by slowly introducing the harness. Place it near where your cat eats and leave it there. Start putting the harness on when your cat eats then removing it. Gradually leave the harness on for longer until your cat feels at home with it.

While mesh fabric is one of the most commonly used materials for cat harnesses, there’s a chance your furball might not enjoy the feel of this next to her skin.

If your cat hates loud noises, you might want to avoid collars with Velcro enclosures.

You know your cat better than anyone so make sure you serve her up the comfort she deserves when you go harness shopping.

Features

If you want any extras like a leash, check that the harness you’re looking at includes one.

That aside, you’ll get pretty much the same offering from harness to harness: a safe way to keep your inside cat close at hand when you head outside.
