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.


When packing our orders, we use FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified Managed Plantations tissue paper that is 100% biodegradable, compostable and acid-free.

When we ship your harness we use compostable mailers for all of our orders. Hero Packaging 'HEROPACKS' are made from mainly corn starch and PBAT (a compostable ingredient which bonds the renewable ingredients together). 

To date, Hero Packaging have saved over 16,000,000 plastic mailers from entering the planet and we are proud to be a part of that statistic!

We also use a direct thermal printer to print all of our shipping labels, meaning no ink or toner! Our labels are also compostable (including the adhesive being non-toxic, so safe for your pets to sniff!)

Our Hero Packaging Mailers have a reusable strip, so be sure when you unwrap your parcel to cut nicely along the dotted line in case of return, you can reuse the mailer bag.

For every order we include a set of Instructions as well as a Thank You Card. We use Canva for our print orders, meaning every order we place with Canva, they plant a tree – it is a simple idea with a big impact.

By the end of 2022, Canva will have planted 3.5 million trees in the ground, focusing on native restoration which mimics what a native forest would do. Tree planting sites are selected based on the degree of deforestation and poverty in the region. Canva is committed to working alongside local villages and communities to achieve a successful and longstanding reforestation effort. By creating jobs such as Planters and Site Managers Canva also help to generate social benefits for the local communities.

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.


We hope you love your Cat Harness Australia purchases. However, if you're not entirely satisfied with your purchase, we're here to help you. Our 30 day satisfaction guarantee will have you purring. Translation: you can return your harness for a full refund of the purchase price if you're not fully satisfied.

Read more about our pawsome refund guarantee here.

Our Hero Packaging Mailers have a reusable strip, so be sure when you unwrap your parcel to cut nicely along the dotted line in case of return, you can reuse the mailer bag.

What happens to our exchange size harnesses?

Ever wondered when you exchange an item where does it go? We have made sure that if return shipping isn't a viable option that we put the trust in our customers to donate the incorrect size to a local cat rescue group. This recycling initiative helps make sure the barely-used cat harness is going to a good home and also encouraging future cat pawrents to walk their future fur babies. Once you have donated the harness onwards we will refund you your harness cost so you can place an order for the correct size.

If there are no local cat rescue groups near you, no worries! You can always return back to us at Cat Harness Australia HQ and we will do the donating on your behalf.

The current rescue group receiving our HQ returns are Kitten Sanctuary. If you are a rescue and would like to sign up to be apart of our harness donation program, please email us at

Training your kitten to walk in a harness can provide numerous benefits for both the cat and their owner. It allows the cat to safely explore the outdoors, provides mental and physical stimulation, and can even improve the cat's behaviour and overall well-being. Walking in a harness can also help stop the "midnight zoomies."  Training a kitten to walk in a harness at a young age is also easier than training an older cat, but it's never too late to start. More information on why you should train your kittens earlier can be found here.

At Cat Harness Australia, we champion responsible cat ownership from an early age. Specially designed for the unique needs of kittens, our XS escape-proof harness ensures your little explorer is comfortable and secure right from the start. Ideal for training your kitten early, it helps them grow into adventurous yet safe adult cats.

Key Features:

  • Kitten-Specific Design: Tailored to fit smaller bodies, our harness is perfect for kittens, offering a comfortable, secure fit that grows with them.
  • Early Training Benefits: Starting harness training early helps kittens adapt to wearing a harness comfortably, making future adventures stress-free.
  • Educational Resources: We provide extensive guidance on kitten harness training with our detailed blogs and training tips. Discover how to gently introduce a harness to your kitten and establish good walking habits early.

Using a harness not only keeps your kitten safe but also protects native Australian wildlife, reinforcing our commitment to environmental responsibility. Learn more about responsible pet ownership and its positive impacts here.

We’re dedicated to sustainable practices, continually improving our products to ensure they are as environmentally friendly as possible. Discover our sustainability efforts here.

The most comfortable and easy to fit harness. My kitten loves his outdoor adventures and I love the confidence he is safe.

Donna Hutton
Very Happy with Purchase

Thanks so much for making such a safe product. Unfortunately my other cat was killed on the road, so with this one I am training her to be more of an indoor cat…. However, she does love to go outside too, and this tiny harness is just perfect. We’re still in the early stages, but she’s doing pretty well. Below is a video and pic of her first walk outside. Will be upgrading to adult sizing when we get there 😊


Brilliant product. So much easier than other products and less stressful for Monty. He loves it!

Awesome harness and fantastic service

These harnesses are the best! They fit really well - they are snug and comfortable. I bought the kitten starter pack and unfortunately didn’t receive a leash. Nick was amazing and offered to buy me an equivalent leash from a local store in NZ so that I could have it straight away, but I decided to wait and he posted one out to me ASAP. His service was exceptional. I am very happy and so is Onyx. Highly recommend. Thanks Nick ☺️


I was having great difficulty finding a good harness to begin training my kitten to be an assistance animal. I wanted to get her used to the harness as soon as possible. The kitten harness trainer pack has made her training so easy. It's light and comfortable for her, even with the added training patches. I know she is safe and secure. She knows when it's time to "work" and it's like a switch when her harness goes on. Knowing that I have the next size ready to go when she grows out of her inital harness is such a relief. I know it will be familiar for her.
The longer lengths of Velcro also mean more room for growth.
