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.
This is my second Gatsby harness. I also have a leather one. I love them both. I’ve tried different styles, and Loki would either fight me to get it on, or they just wouldn’t fit quite right and he seemed awkward. This is perfect, I can put it on him easily, no fighting! And he seems to be quite comfortable and can move around with ease. I love this harness. And I get compliments on it everywhere we go. Thank you!
The gatsby harness is great! Nice snug fit with quality and comfortable materials.
My cat seems way more comfortable in this than he did in his previous harnesses. It's also easy to put on, and the colour looks nice with the colours of his coat. But the best part is that he doesn't escape his harness nearly as often as he did before.
We love this cork harness! It’s the first step-in type that we have been able to use with our Bengal, Ruby. Getting her to step in is still a 2 person job, for now. It’s light but solid, and doesn’t choke her like the over the head harness we were using before.
I followed the directions to measure, but was a bit concerned because Ruby does not often stop moving unless she is laying down. The medium fits great for her at just over a year old and over 8 pounds. I adjusted it to make it smaller, and there is plenty of room for it to grow with her.
We also have the black leash which is great, and the black leather harness, which we haven’t tried, because we like the cork so much. The retractable leash is on the way. Can’t wait to try it too.
Love this harness! I'm finally confident that we've found a harness that our cat Moon Moon can't wriggle out of! Super easy to put on (no need to pull something over her head!) and the 4-way adjustable straps allow us to get a great fit for her small frame!
A wonderful harness that fits my cat perfectly! He loves it, and so do I.
Meet Loki. He's a 12 yr old Maine Coon. I wasn't sure a medium harness would fit him, as he was right at the large end of the scale, but it fits with a bit to spare. This is a picture from our first outing. He's not leash trained, and when I tried (in the past) with other harnesses, he managed to back out. But not this time! The Supakit Gatsby is great, and yes...they are inescapable!
Sorry the harness doesn't show much under all his gorgeous fur.♡
I got the large cork harness. Both myself and my boy Riker love it!!
Looks good, feels good and keeps our Mr Cinnamon secure
Struggle getting used to it..and walks commando style.. now he knows when get harness out its walkies!!
My cat loves the harness, and especially that it doesn’t have to be put over her head. It’s also very soft and I love that it’s vegan.
Finally, at long last, I found a great halter for TeddyBoy! I had bought two previous ones from other vendors, that took me forever to put on TeddyBoy, fit poorly, and were just plain awful. I just threw them out. Also thanks to Nala, of #bike1world, the pretty tabby, who pointed me to your website. Kudos to you all for making such an awesome halter....
Great quality, great fit and looks pretty darn good if I may say so! Our cat is loving the outdoor time with her new harness and leash combo.
This is “Sammy” our 4 yr old kitten. We got him the natural, vegan Cork “Gatsby” harness that he wears all the time. Sam loves it & he doesn’t even know it’s on! We are planning to become full time RVers here in the USA once I retire in early 2020. We also have two other boys that we are getting ready to harness train so they can all hike with us in the mountains or wherever we go. Thank you for putting out such Great products!! Esp the Gatsby we cant wait!
