We've gone back to basics to create the perfect cat lead for your cat. Handmade from ultra soft and luxurious natural cotton rope, the result is a soft, flexible yet super-strong cat and kitten lead that will never weigh your cat down, so they can enjoy their adventures to the max!
Soft & lightweight: Made from luxuriously soft & lightweight 8-strand mercerized cotton rope.
Extra strong: Each Gatsby lead is hand-spliced using a traditional nautical technique, for a lead that has amazing strength without extra heavy fixings or hardware.
Cat or kitten lead: At 1.2 metres in length, the Gatsby lead is suitable for cats of all ages and sizes. It also comes with a ring attachment that allows you to use the lead at half length (e.g. when sitting on a plane or train).
Washable at 30℃
We offer two styles of leashes - the Gatsby soft rope leash, which is a fixed length, and a retractable leash, which is extendable.

Thank you Supakit for the amazing harness and leash. Milo’s first walk with his new harness. Doesn’t he look handsome ♥️
Great, bought with large cat harness, yet to use but lovely quality!
I actually only bought the leash because it matches the harness, I usually use an extendable leash. Now that I have used it I can fully appreciate the advantages.
For walking on the streets, which we do a lot, this is a far superior leash. It is super lightweight and a lot more comfortable to use than my other one. Although it feels barely there it definitely stood up to Sylvester pulling on it when he was particularly eager to get moving and being Sylvester proof is no mean feat!
Being so light it didn't restrict his movement at all. It is long enough that when we returned to the garden he had no problem leaping into the air when chasing a bug!
The real advantage for me is the extra ring, enabling the leash to be shortened, which means much more pleasant car journeys as Sylvester doesn't have to travel in his bag, yet can still be safe and secure.
The colour of the leash perfectly matches the harness, making it really stand out in the looks department. The quality is a visible improvement on other similar products and can be felt as well as seen.
This is the best "afterthought" I have ever purchased, I am so pleased that I decided to add it. Soft, strong and adjustably long, I love everything about it!
