I have 2 house kittens, who have never been on a leash or harness. How should I go about helping them to adjust to your harnesses
Answer by ChewyMay 23, 2019
When first showing your cat the harness, allow them to sniff and play with it before attempting to put it on. While spending time with or in the harness, give them plenty of treats to reinforce positive associations. Once you buckle the harness, allow your cat to move around the house freely and get comfortable before attaching a leash or attempting to explore outdoors.

What is the material on the inside of the harness? We have a sphinx kitten and want to make sure it's soft for his skin. Thanks!
Answer by ChewyDec 19, 2018
The Kitty Holster Cat Harness is soft and made from 100% breathable cotton with an undyed cotton lining that’s especially great for cats with allergies.

Do cats tend to get freaked out by the sound of the velcro pieces being pulled apart when removing this vest? Is it loud or on the quiet side?
Answer by ChewyJul 26, 2018
To minimize the sound of velcro, you can pull it apart slower to avoid startling your cat.

What happens if a cat pulls backwards in this harness? In a traditional H harness, by hunching shoulders, my cat can escape. Does this harness have that flaw?

Kitty Holsters

As we were looking around for harnesses for our 2 new kittens, we were impressed by the reviews written about the Kitty Holster. We decided to buy one for each kitten to try them out. Initially the kittens were frightened of the velcro sound and the heavier weight of the material. However, they quite quickly got used to them and now are easily put on. The harnesses adjust well, so they should work well with our kittens as they grow and they are very secure. We are very pleased with the quality and are happy with our purchase.

A trip to the emergency room

We can only speak about our experience with this harness. Once in it, our cat laid down for a moment and then freaked out. Once we caught up with him, we couldn't adjust the harness because the Velcro strip located UNDER THE CAT was too stiff and tight and left us vulnerable to fangs and claws as we tried to pry the harness open. Much blood and a trip to the emergency room for a cat bite resulted. We found the design to be insanely stupid unless your cat is comatose, declawed, and defanged.

My cat is big and I have the hardest time finding a harness that fits, because his neck is still really small. Dog harnesses never fit right and he usually slips right out of them. This is the first that fits really well! I was skeptical of the Velcro, but this stuff is super strong. Onyx weighs over 20 pounds, and fits snugly into the M/L option for reference.

Better fit

I tried a pretty standard Y-chest harness, but my kitty is pretty long and narrow under her floof. This design is very adjustable, and the velcro is surprisingly hardcore. She also fusses about this one less than the ones that require putting her head and leg through loops.

Very strong and cute harness

My cat is little big and at the beginning he was not used to the harness. The key point is to distract the cat/connecting the harness with interesting things, like taking them to a new location or bringing them some new toys. Now Misha just purrs when I put him on with this because he knows he is going outside to play!

Didn't work for me

I ordered the smallest size which by all measurements should have fit my kitten fine, but it seemed too big. The neck straps were like a whole neck brace on his neck and immobilized him completely. The fabric was also super stiff which made it difficult to get it to fit right and made him super uncomfortable (even outside of the regular kitty harness drunkeness). I feel like it would be better if it was made with some sort of stretchy fabric material? This is a good option for bigger cats who are more panicky/escape artists because it would be super safe if fitted and adorned correctly, but it didn't work out for me.

Perfect Fit for the dainty furrybutt princess

I bought this harness for my much tinier female kitty, the small was still too large but this one fits perfectly and she is so much more content in it. These stay on very well and don't ubstruct the pets as long as you have the proper size on them.

doesn’t prohibit movement

Love this! My 5mo kitten adapted to this harness immediately. She was hesitant at first but quickly realized she could still run and play. It doesn’t restrict movement like some of the other harnesses I’ve tried. I thought she would be more nervous about the sound of the velcro, but doesn’t seem to mind at all. Sturdy ring, and I like that it’s all cotton.

love it but too small for a really big cat

I have a 22 lb. chartreuse and had to add a bit of fabric on the bottom closure to make it fit. It's darling, and as long as you stay behind them with the leash they don't get out.

Keeps my cat secure

The material is really nice and I like how adjustable it is. He can't escape from it even when pulling. Still getting used to it but it's going well
