How to size your cat for a harness:

To fit our Catventure Cat Harness, start by measuring your cat and comparing with our sizing chart below. Having the correct size will prevent the cat from escaping. Our velcro adjustable cat harness is easy to put on simple adjust the chest strap first then the neck strap with their front legs in between. Ensure it is a snug fit, not too tight and not too loose.

The easiest way to measure your cats neck and chest circumference is with a soft tape measure. If you do not have one, you can use a piece of string or fabric then measure it up against a ruler.

To fasten your cat harness properly, there should be only enough room for a finger gap between the cats body and the harness. Their elbows should not be able to wiggle out of it if there is only that minimal of space. Please evaluate inside your home before your big adventure! Test to make sure you have purchased the correct size and that if you were to try get your cats elbow to wiggle out, that this won't be possible.

Before you get started:

If your cat has never worn a cat harness or a cat collar it may be a slow transition for your kitty so please be patient. Let them sniff it, inspect it, encourage them with pats and treats. We also recommend the process inside the home as it is easier to put on. More detailed instructions and tips can be found on our blog post here.

When your harness arrives, leave the cat harness out for your cat to sniff and inspect, place the harness somewhere familiar without invading their safe spaces. Once your cat is comfortable and has lived with the harness in their space, we recommend trying on the harness inside the home. Let them walk around in it inside the home before attaching the leash and taking your cats outdoors.

To get your cat into the harness, hold your cat and encourage them with pats and slowly fit the belly band around their torso with a finger of space between their body and the cat harness. Keep giving your cat some nice chin scratches as they may feel a bit strange. Once you feel your cat is ready, secure the neck band on with a finger space of room between their neck and the harness.

Many cats will fall over when they first try a harness because it triggers a survival response. It also might be from having the harness too tight. Help them overcome this with highly attractive motivation (treats) and lots of praise. Don't be disheartened if your cat does not take to the harness instantly. If you rush into it too quickly they may get anxious. Remember small steps to achieving those big goals.

We Support WIRES & Local Rescue Groups

We put our money where our mouth is, meaning we donate $1 for every harness sold to WIRES for the good of the Australian native wildlife.

Every year, WIRES receives thousands of calls for advice concerning interactions between domestic pets and native animals. Sadly, this is a common cause of injury in suburban areas and if the injured native animal is not immediately taken to receive veterinary care, the consequences can be fatal. Luckily, there are some precautions that can be taken to help minimise the risks of wildlife being injured, and to avoid unpleasant situations for your family pet. WIRES strongly promotes responsible pet ownership which is key to a safer environment for wildlife and for domestic pets. You can learn more through the link here.  

WIRES have many initiatives including National Grants, Emergency funding, Landcare Alliance, Specialised projects (more recently Koalas and Native Animal Disease Research), Conservation projects and the Water for Wildlife initiative.

Learn more about WIRES

Through social media, there is even more visibility with the reality that cat rescue groups are facing. As a charity, cat rescue groups depend on community support to cover the costs of running the rescue. The costs include professional care and advisory staff; veterinary expenses including health checks, desexing and any necessary treatments or surgery; vaccinations; microchips; kitty litter as well as costs to promote their adoptions and welfare work plus administration costs.

Cat Harness Australia makes regular donations to a variety of cat rescue groups within Australia. We also exclusively wholesale to rescue groups and small businesses. By rescue groups having being a stockist of our products, their profit allows them fund the costs of their rescue.

If you are the owner of a licensed cat rescue group within Australia and you would like to become a stockist of our products, please reach out to us via the link here.

Why does my cat fall over?

🎄 Embarking on a Jolly Journey: Most kitties have never donned festive attire and, being sensitive to tactile stimuli, may find their first harness experience to be a unique one!

🐾 The “Freeze & Flop” Phenomenon: When first wearing a cat harness, many felines perform what we lovingly call the “Freeze & Flop” - they might lay on their side as if immobilized by the Christmas spirit! Fear not, they're not in discomfort, and many are actually purring while they do this, perhaps imagining themselves sleighing through the snow!

🎅 Santa Paws’ Encouragement: If your kitty does the Freeze & Flop, give them some time to adjust and encourage them to move with gentle pets and soothing words. Imagine they're waiting for Santa and need a little nudge to go explore!

🍪 Treats on the Nice List: With daily practice sessions of 1-5 minutes, help them overcome their initial hesitation with highly attractive motivation (think of the yummiest treats) and heaps of praise. Most kitties quickly learn that they can still move freely and begin to explore their winter wonderland with curiosity!

🌟 A Holly Jolly Adjustment: Remember, patience is key to helping your kitty get used to their new harness. With consistent encouragement and positive reinforcement, they'll soon associate their harness with fun adventures and perhaps, dream of prancing reindeers!

Embark on a festive adventure with your kitty, ensuring their first harness experience is filled with comfort, encouragement, and a dash of Christmas magic! 🐱🛷🎁

🎅 Santa’s Responsible Cat Owners: At Cat Harness Australia, we believe in the magic of responsible cat ownership. Our escape-proof cat harness, crafted and tested by the Aussie domestic cats (perhaps some of Santa’s little helpers?), ensures your feline friend is as comfy and secure as possible during their outdoor adventures. It's the ideal choice for the Houdini cats of the world who might sneak out of any other harness!

🐾 Protecting the Native Wonderland: Having your cat on a harness outdoors minimises their impact on the native Australian wildlife, ensuring all creatures can enjoy a peaceful and merry season. For more information on this vital issue, please visit here.

🎁 A Snug Fit for Every Kitty: Our cat harness size chart, which can be found below, is your guide to ensuring a snug and comfy fit for your kitty during their festive frolics. Choosing the correct size is crucial to keep them secure and jolly on their adventures!

🌏 A Mission Wrapped in Sustainability: Guided by our mission, we're dedicated to constantly improving our sustainability practices, aiming to gift a positive impact on the environment. Though we are a small business, we believe we can make a big difference, just like a single jingle bell can spread cheer far and wide!

🌟 Journey Towards a Greener Future: You can read more about our steps towards sustainability here. We may not be at 100% yet, but like a determined elf in Santa’s workshop, we're diligently working towards a greener future.

Rag doll adventures with ease

Perfect and feels much kinder for my cat, rather than lead and harness, he loves it ! I also feel it’s gives him a secure feeling wearing it. The quality fabric etc makes it a perfect investment for my pet. I would highly recommend!

Xmas cat harness

Looks great but even though I ordered a medium normal harness the Xmas harness that was sent was a very small kitten size so I can’t use it.

My 11 year old cat loves it!

My kitty has always been an inside cat and pretty anxious and never used a harness. I put the harness and lead on her and thought I’d have to wait for her to get used to it before going outside but she adjusted well pretty much within a few days. She’s always excited to go out for walkies now and is getting better each time learning commands and adjusting to the lead.
