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.

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.
Love! Lightweight and stylish. Many people have complemented our little dudes snazzy harness! The first time we put it on him (10 weeks old), he was totally unfazed by it. We think it’s due to the lightweight and comfortable design. He now purrs when we put it on. Can’t wait to purchase another one when he out grows the kitten size!
This is honestly the ONLY cat harness that my kitties have not been able to get out of. They didn't mind it ONE bit. We go out just about every day for hours, and I'm no longer scared to death of losing them. My Bandies jumps around chasing bugs, and pulls the harness hard, but it NEVER budges. This is seriously the BEST cat harness out there, not kidding.
Sal doesnt even realize he's wearing it! You definitely need to measure your cat in order for it to fit properly though. Definitely recommend!
Great quality harness. It was a good choice to buy it :)
Gus is a big fluffy boy (17lbs), he didn’t like the other harness’ with Velcro as they were all uncomfortably tight. He seems to like this one and now he can sit out on the terrace with me without fear he’ll dive off the roof should the mood take him!
Bruce is a big strong kitty who in previous attempts to use the most basic cat harnesses absolutely hated them. We had to move countries so a harness was a must and I was looking for the lightest and easy to put on option there is. I absolutely love Supakit! It's on within seconds. It worked great for the trip and we have wondered out in the nature with it as well. I think Supakit harness will have turned Bruce into a real adventure cat and we will go back to explore local parks! Since he has quite a big frame for a cat, weighs 7.5kg and was borderline in measurements between M and L, I had chosen L size harness. It works well (set at shortest strap length) but if I were to get him a second one I would go for M with straps adjusted as long as possible since the front piece thatcgoes on the chest of the M is smaller. Nonetheless, Bruce loved to discover walks in his Supakit harness!!
I have tried a few harnesses for my male Ragdoll, Maximus, but all were either too small or with velcro that got stuck in his long hair. However, the Supakit harness and lead are much better as they allow him freedom of movement and don't get stuck in his hair. It's also very secure. Love it! Very pleased :)
This photo shows Indiana wearing his new blue cork harness and soaking up the sun in he and his sister’s early forays into our garden . He’s just turned one and as you can see is a very big boy and this harness fits him beautifully.
Keeps our little one safe while being unable to get her spayed or chipped at present. Can still have a little freedom
My rescue cat used to love going by the river for walks but after she escaped from two previous harnesses (which she hated being put on) I lost confidence and she got phobic about going outdoors. I purchased the Gatsby and it arrived yesterday. Today we went for our first river walk. She absolutely loved it and was running around happily which she never did with her old harnesses. It was also so much easier to put on. Thank you so much!
