Discover the cat harness that you and your cat have always dreamed of! Supremely comfortable, super secure and ready for every adventure. Whether you’re hopping in the car for a journey, trekking through the wilds or your kitty is just napping in the sun, the Gatsby cat harness will be your cat’s perfect companion through their adventures great and small.
The Gatsby cork cat harness is crafted from amazing vegan cork ‘leather’, harvested just a few miles away from our workshop in Spain, to keep your kitty’s carbon pawprint low. This super-sustainable material is just as strong and supple as our regular leather range (it’s also waterproof too!).
The Gatsby cat harness was developed with the help of a group of 'harness Houdini' cats, to create a secure cat harness that is resistant to all of the usual break-out tricks. The result is a super safe cat harness that lets you relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of quality time spent with your cat!
Please note: the Gatsby cat harness is designed for use with a leash, under human supervision. We do not recommend the use of cat harnesses for unsupervised tethering, as it is potentially dangerous and can adversely affect the escape-proofing of the harness.
The Gatsby cat harness and kitten harness is specially designed from the ground up, just for cats! Its natural scent helps your cat accept their harness with ease, while the simple single buckle step-in design means that there’s no need to put anything over your cat's head or disturb them with loud and scary velcro. Just pop your cat's front paws through the harness loops, clip up the single buckle, and you’re ready to go!
The unique sling design cradles your cat in all of the right places, while leaving their neck completely free - we hear from a lot of asthmatic kitties that it works much better for them than other harness designs because of this!
With 3 body sizes to choose from and 4 fully-adjustable straps, getting that ‘just right’ fit couldn’t be easier. To find your cat's perfect Gatsby size, simply take a look at our size and measuring guide here.
The Gatsby harness comes in three adjustable sizes, to cater to every shape and size of cat (even little kittens and big chonky floof-monsters!). To find the right size Gatsby for your cat, simply follow our size and measuring guide here.
You can also find answers to some of our common sizing questions below!
What if my cat is between two harness sizes?
When a cat is on the borderline between two sizes we always suggest choosing the smaller of the two, as it ensures a good snug fit which will make the harness nice and escape proof (and is comfier for your cat too as the harness won't move around as they walk).
Because of the way the Gatsby harness is designed, there is a little bit of give and take between the front straps and back straps:
If your cat needs just an extra cm or half inch at the back, you can loosen the front straps just a little to give them the extra adjustability they need at the back.
Or, if your cat needs an extra cm or half inch at the front, you can loosen the back straps just a little to give them the extra adjustability they need at the front.
Are your harnesses adjustable? Will I need to buy a larger size as my cat grows?
All of our harnesses come in three sizes (small / medium / large), and each size has a range of adjustability on both the front and back straps.
There is a LOT of adjustability in all of our harness sizes, so there is a very good chance that you will be able to use a single size and adjust it as your cat grows. Obviously this depends on your particular cat and how much growing they will do - but as an example, one of the models on our store, Lola - still wears the 'small' size Gatsby harness that she first wore as a kitten, even though she is now 4 years old and fully grown.
I know my cat's weight. Can I use this to choose their harness size?
The secret to success with the Gatsby harness is getting the fit just right! We've designed a harness that comes in three sizes to accommodate every shape and size of cat. However, we've found that weight alone isn't accurate enough to choose your cat's perfect size.
Instead, to ensure the perfect fit for your cat's Gatsby harness (which is really important for your cat's comfort and safety), you need to take justtwo simple measurements.

Q: What is the difference between the cork Gatsby harnesses and leather Gatsby harnesses?
The Gatsby harness comes in two materials - natural genuine leather, and vegan cork 'leather'. They are both equally supple and strong. The only difference between them is their water resistance. The leather Gatsby harness is splashproof, whereas the cork Gatsby harness can handle full immersion. So if your cat loves to swim or you live on or around water, we'd recommend opting for the cork Gatsby harness over the leather!

Q: I have a Chihuahua / small dog - is the Gatsby harness suitable for them? And how do I find the right size?
The Gatsby harness is designed for cats but we do know of several small dogs that have fallen in love with the Gatsby! You can measure your dog up as per the size & measuring guide, but just remember that these measurements are for a snug, body-hugging fit. If you'd like your dog to have a looser fitting harness or room to put a jumper on underneath, simply add on a few centimetres or inches to the measurements you've taken.
Our cat hesitated to move when she had this harness
Nola loves her Gatsby harness. It’s easy to get into and it never stops her from getting up to mischief. We’ll never use another harness. It’s exceptional quality and the customer service is always great when we order.
Absolutely love this lightweight harness!! It fully secure Lena and shes’s able to run and play around without being weighed down or restricting from movement. So pleased we found Supakit !
Tellmí hates harnesses with passion but we had to move countries so I was on a lookout for the lightest, easiest to put on harness there is and Supakit is by far my favorite find. And it works! It takes me seconds to put it on! Once it's on , she doesn't try to rip it off or jump out of it. Yes, she is a princess with many emotions and this harness really worked! I would recommend it to all the kitties who want to or are in need to be explorers!
Beautifully made product! Our cat loves wearing the harness, she really didn't like other fabric harnesses we had bought her previously.
Needed harnesses for 2 cats for at home and if/when we decide to take them trailer camping. They are good at following me, so don't use them at home very often, only when leaving them outside on their own for short periods of time. We haven't tried them out yet as camping is limited due to COVID; however, these were very easy to put on and when we do use them, the cats don't hate them and skulk around like with other harnesses. As well, they are escape-proof which is important for when we do have them away from home.
This is our first experience of using a harness to take our cats out into our garden. As they’ve just turned one this is their first too! So far so very good and this picture of Harper Lee shows how much she enjoys the fresh air!
Really high quality was very impressed when it arrived! Would definitely recommend. Only thing I would suggest is putting it on the loosest setting first to get your cat used. After it’s used to it then tightening it to fit as I put it on to the correct fit straight away and my cat walked weirdly and didn’t seem comfortable or to get used to it but then after loosening it and then readjusting once he was used to it he loves it!
