Customers RAVE about the Kitty Holster® cat harness. Cats who hate wearing harnesses love the Kitty Holster®!
>>Candy C. from New Zealand, on July 6, 2012, says: “Hi! Got the Kitty Holster today…thank you. My 3-legged cat Batman has had a look around his new backyard…we love it……Cheers…..Candy and Batman!”
The Kitty Holster® cat harness is perfect for handling your cat at veterinary appointments, taking your cat RVing and traveling, walking your cat, visiting friends and family with your cat, and taking your cat out on a balcony. Wherever you plan to walk your cat, the Kitty Holster® cat harness will provide you with peace of mind knowing that your cat is both safe and comfortable.
Compared to other cat harnesses, the unique, patent-pending 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 to inhibit 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 abrasion; no harsh webbing; comes in a variety of attractive patterns and colors; is durable and machine washable (just close the velcro tabs before washing).
1) My cat hates harnesses. How can I best get the Kitty Holster on him? We recommend that you drape it over him while he is lying down or eating. Reach slowly and gently around his abdomen and neck to secure the velcro closures.
2) Can my cat get out of the Kitty Holster? Most likely not, unless the harness fits your cat too loosely. It is VERY difficult for a cat to remove a well-fitting Kitty Holster®. However, some cats can get out of ANY harness. In our experience, these accomplished Houdinis tend to pull backwards against a taut leash — particularly in a tie-out situation, which we do not recommend — while twisting rapidly with front legs straightened up toward their head, thereby being able to slip the harness over their head and front legs. For any cat that has a tendency to pull backwards against a leash it is essential that the harness fit snug around their body.
3) How do I remove cat hair from the Velcro? To clean the Velcro between washings, use one of the types of sticky-rollers that are sold to remove pet hair from clothing. A swipe of the roller and even the hair that is stuck in the closed loops of the Velcro will simply vanish.
4) What are the sizes that the Kitty Holster is available in? The Kitty Holster® is available in four sizes: XS, S/M, M/L and XL. Most cats wear a S/M or M/L. To be sure which size fits your cat, take a tape measure and measure your cat’s torso behind the front legs. The S/M is 7 ½” long, has a 3 ½” wide girth strap and adjusts around the torso from approximately 13” to about 17″ (fitting cats of about 8 – 13 pounds). The M/L is 8 ½” long, has a 4” wide girth strap and adjusts around the torso from approximately 16” to about 20” (fitting longer-backed, wider cats of about 12 to 20 pounds.) XS fits cats of less than 13″ girth and the XL fits cats of more than 20″ girth.
The Kitty Holster® is a soft, secure and super-comfortable 100% cotton cat harness with a metal D-ring for attaching a leash. Our strong, ultra-lightweight harness secures with wide velcro closures. This breathable, washable cotton harness with undyed lining is suitable for all skin types and climates.
Every order comes with a training pamphlet: “How To Train Your Cat to Walk On a Leash.”

>>“Douglas Squirrel saved by Kitty Holster”, Posted by Unknown on Dec 4, 2011. “Chester R. The Houdini of the cat world was foiled in his attempt to catch “Dougie” who had the idiot notion to run past him on the deck this past summer. Chester attempted a barrel roll and nose dive maneuver in order to escape the kitty holster (techniques purrfected on harnesses of lower quality) only to be thwarted in his attempt. Needless to say that Chester doesn’t recommend the holster but his human who is typing this review is completely impressed with the purchase.”
>>“My cat loves it!” Posted by Robin from Colorado on Jan 27, 2011. “We went for an hour walk today. I’ve tried other harnesses and she wouldn’t use them. We have a winner with this one.”
>>“Jessie Cat and Gina are totally impressed! Buy it!” Posted by Gina and Jessie from Illinois on Mar 15, 2012. “Jessie was strutting around in her new harness by Day 2. No fight putting it on but did distract her with treats. The wide and long velcro closures are super “sticky” which is good! Speaking of sticky – a sticky roller brush instantly removes loose hair off the harness. I had bought another type of flimsy, not-much-to-it type of harness months ago. And I never used it because I was terrified she’d “escape” from it. I am very confident with the Kitty Holster harness. I realize if a cat is fighting hard enough and trying to slip backwards out of ANY harness, it’s possible for them to escape. But the moment Jessie did attempt to pull backwards, I eased up on the leash, moved to her side and kept calm. She chilled out-all was fine and the harness stayed completely secure around her body. It is important to keep the harness snug, too. Don’t strangle your cat, but make sure there aren’t any big gaps between her body and the harness (common sense!). LOVE IT!! Now we can sit outside together in the sun, enjoying a beautiful day! Buy one (or 2 or 3…different patterns are offered)!”
Jessie Cat says: I got to go OUTSIDE!!!!!!! woohoo!
