Kitty Holster Cat Harness, the Original Walking Vest, as seen on CBS Sunday Morning, and featured in The New York Times!

The award-winning, made-in-the-USA Kitty Holster® cat harness, the difficult-to-escape-from harness used and recommended by Jackson Galaxy on Animal Planet’s “My Cat from Hell,” includes a free training pamphlet to educate your customer and minimize the chance of their pet escaping, and provides them with a well-made harness that keeps their cat safe and sound at a reasonable price.

The patented Kitty Holster cat harness is better for both you and your cat. Compared to other cat harnesses, the Kitty Holster:

  • is ultra-lightweight and easier for your cat to wear
  • is made of 100% breathable cotton to keep your cat comfortable
  • has an undyed cotton lining that is gentle on your cat's delicate hair and inhibits irritation to cats who may have delicate skin or skin allergies
  • is easier for you -- and less stressful to your cat -- to put on and take off of your cat
  • has no nylon, thin straps or plastic clips that can cause uncomfortable pressure points and skin abrasion
  • has no harsh webbing to break or abrade your cat's hair
  • comes in a variety of attractive patterns and colors (selection changes seasonally)
  • is durable
  • is machine washable
  • made in the USA
  • note:  Due to different dye lots, holster colors may be lighter or darker than what appears in the photos.

Most cats in the United States are indoor cats and do not get enough exercise. Many folks would love to take their kitty for a walk, but cats in general are very reluctant to wear harnesses or are little Houdinis at getting out of them. The patented design of the Kitty Holster cat harness addresses both of these issues by providing cats with an ultra-
comfortable, lightweight and secure “clothing-like” harness that the majority of cats readily accept wearing.

While the process of putting on and taking off other cat harnesses can be very stressful for your cat and frustrating for you, putting a Kitty Holster on your cat is a simple -- and much more enjoyable -- experience for both of you. You simply drape our soft cat harness over the back of your cat and reach beneath chin and belly to secure the Velcro closures. While a good-fitting Kitty Holster cat harness is very difficult for the cat to remove, it is exceedingly easy for you to take off of your cat. The closures – one at the collar the other at the abdomen -- open in opposite directions so you simply have to grasp one with the right hand and the other with the left and pull firmly to open the harness.

Surprising!

After trying the typical H-style collar/harness - which my cat could inevitably wiggle out of - I searched for a better solution.

The Kitty Holster harness is very well made with large velcro straps. I washed it first and put it on the floor for him and he immediately claimed it as his. The next day he wanted to go outside enough to let me put the harness on and we ventured out the door. At first I could tell it felt weird for him - he was walking funny and sometimes would back up. I am lucky as he trusts me and he's pretty game for stuff. Don't be dismayed if it is a longer process for your cat. Let them take as much time getting used to it as they need and you'll all be happier!

A Very Comfortable Harness

This harness is easy to get on. It drapes across the back and that puts the wide Velcro strips in the right place to fasten underneath. My cat instantly accepted wearing it. It didn't restrict her movement in any way. The harness is a lightweight, soft and flexible material. She is very comfortable in it.

Very Good harness for young active cat

This harness fit well using the measurement table provided. The velcro is strong and my strong cat was secure in it. He is not used to going outside, but wants to do so and now I can introduce him. I take care to keep leash lose and stay behind him. If he gets spooked, he can run back inside without struggling against me. I feel it is secure and would be hard to get out of.

A couple little oopses but good harness

This is great and i love that some of the proceeds go to charity. It's taking a little getting used to but it's easy to put on, sturdy, and probably a better fit than the harness we were using which was technically for a dog and a little short i think in the back. The only thing we're having trouble adjusting to is the large stiff collar velcro pieces. We're getting better at velcro-ing them lower but even there they seem to restrict my cat's ability to put her head down. We had a funny few incidents of falling over, getting a paw through the top, and mild complaints but it is getting better and i think that's a good amount of it, just getting used to the fit. in any case i'm happy with it and we've gone out on a few nice walks in the yard so far which she enjoys so much she doesn't really care about the adjusting part.
