Cat Harnesses are used for that extra security for handling purposes. This can be at the vets during examination, vetting in at cat shows as well as safe exercising of your cat , they love to go for a walk! Also a suitable means to give indoor cats much needed exercise. Over weight cats also very much benefit from this form of exercise.
In the past we have used various types of harness and found them all to be inadequate in some way. Usually the "D" ring that the lead is secured to is placed at the neck point of the harness - this serves to put pressure on the throat when the lead is tense, we place ours behind the shoulders. Other failings have been they are not strong enough - or they are too narrow rendering no room for tension distribution. The fittings have been very inadequate having just plastic clips or slip buckles to which cats can snap or indeed escape out of.
As a result of these and many other things we decided to make our own.
The leathers I use come in several colours the best is a natural vegetable tanned "Kip" leather. Kip leather is the skin from the bovine species (cows), this leather is soft and luxurious, and used by the best small leather goods manufacturers. This leather is strong yet soft used by falconers, also to line purses and wallets. Being naturally tanned there is no nasty chemicals involved. Cats being fastidious always lick their coats and many harnesses are dyed and the colour bleeds on to the coats.
You have the option of having the shoulder strap decorated with Genuine Swarovski Crystals on request for an extra £6.00 or a Swarovski crystal stud or two at a cost of £4.00 each. Images of these are below.
The Harness and leads are fully adjustable with extra length to make as close fitting as you wish. They are double riveted for extra strength.
They fit all cats from small to the larger breeds such as the Norwegian Forest cats and Maine Coons. Also suitable for rabbits, ferrets and small toy dogs.
The leads measure approximately 30 inches.
Please note that the Kip leather harnesses are not lacquered in any way and they will stain naturally over time.
We can make a harness to any size you require from young kittens through to overweight cats.
