Open up a whole new world of harness adventures for you and your cat! The Gatsby leather cat harness is a comfy & secure cat harness that can take you and your cat on adventures of all shapes and sizes - whether you’re exploring nature, crossing town to the vets, or just hanging out together in the backyard.
The Gatsby leather cat harness is crafted from luxurious genuine leather that will last a lifetime but is so soft and supple your cat will soon forget they even have a harness on.
This harness was designed with the help of a team of escape-artist cats around the world who tested each harness prototype to escape-artist destruction! With their help, we pioneered the unique Gatsby cat harness design, which blocks off all of the favoured methods of escape (including backing out) to create a safe cat harness that's secure as can be.
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.
Milo is used to wearing a harness so it was no problem putting it on. It seems to bother him a lot less than the previous harnesses we've tried. Also very good quality and beautiful color.
Amity loves her new harness and knows it means playtime outside as soon as she sees it. She’s seems so comfy in it and happily wears it whenever. Great purchase and well worth the money.
This harness is wonderful! I debated for some time whether or not to purchase this harness for my cat Peaches, but I'm glad I finally did! Due to my husband's line of work, we find ourselves moving a lot so I wanted her to have something safe, secure, and comfortable. She is a petite cat (about 7 lbs) so finding a well-fitting harness that was also comfortable was hard. I originally used the Kitty Holster (XS) for her which worked well, but I could tell the neck was too thick and she just wasn't as comfortable moving around in it. I got this harness in a size small and it fits her perfectly with room to grow. There is a buckle (no loud velcro), she steps in (nothing over the head), and it is adjustable! Not to mention the colors are beautiful! The leather is very soft and sturdy. Honestly, I could go on. I highly suggest buying this harness if you've been thinking about it because it is worth every penny.
Dusty loves his harness and waits by the door to go exploring as soon as I put it on him. It doesn’t impede his movements in anyway and he seems very comfortable. We love it I feel completely safe taking him out and about.
I ordered the new harness after seeing it on Nala the cat traveling the world. The one we had went over George's head and it was hard to get on. This one is the best! He just steps into it and it clips on in a second. The fit is very good and fits his body to a charm. George is starting to discover the outside world and I don't have to worry about him running off.
It’s was a nice quality harness but the buckle pressed down on her shoulder blades too much so we returned it. She is a slim cat so this just wasn’t the harness for us
We love the gatsby harness! My girls get spooked easily (and also stubborn) and have gotten out of previous harnesses. I was always scared they would get lost, but now I don’t worry when using the gatsby! They can’t escape, and the harness is super comfortable for them!! I couldn’t be more pleased!!
Gilbert loves his harness - it's makes him feel safe and secure. To put it on with the use of one hand I put one paw in first and then the other paw when he has got balance for the other side.

it's really perfect!
we enjoy our walks safely :)
Been using this harness for about 3 weeks now and my cat got used to it quickly. Very easy to put on. Just lift their front paws into it and close the clasp. Looks great. However, it is NOT escape proof. My guy just did an unexpected ninja move and boom, he was out of it! Luckily he ran a short distance and I was able to follow him and catch him. I only ever walk him around my property outside which is not fenced in, when things are quiet. He has gotten out of the kitty holster previously too. I thought the Supakit harness would be secure, but unfortunately not. Is there really no escape proof cat harness out there??! The search continues.....
This is just what Frasse needs! He is very prone to backing out of harnesses - but he did not manage to back out of this one!
The Gatsby manages perfectly to follow the movements of my cat, without constricting movement.
My 1-year-old cart wants me to put her harness on so she can go outside. She absolutely cannot slip out of it!
NEWMAN loves going to the pub with his Supakit equipment.
Prudence loves her harness it is comfortable and very secure & stylish!!! Will purchase in the future
Very very nice quality, packaged beautifully, bought large for a very large Maine Coon kitten with the leash, and just introducing but can’t wait to put to use.
All three of my cats love wearing and walking in this harness! It makes vet trips easier and they love exploring the gardens outside.
Fantastic! For the past three years I have taken Sylvester out wearing a cat jacket. Although I have never had a problem, I did worry about it snagging and the Velcro coming undone, especially on more adventurous outings, I also didn't like him being so covered up, especially in warmer weather but still felt it was the best option.... until I saw this harness!
Sylvester was a little fidgety the first time I put it on, but was absolutely fine the second it was fastened. He was immediately comfortable wearing it and it allows him full range of movement without slipping or needing any adjustments. Now he knows that it means it's time to go out he's perfectly happy to let me put it on.
I feel confident that he is safe in any environment, I have no concerns about him escaping when wearing this harness. Being fully adjustable gives the perfect fit, ensuring both safety and comfort. The leather is super soft and supple, yet tough enough to make the quality second to none. All the brass studs, adjusters and rings are fitted perfectly. A really well made product.
The harness is also a winner on looks alone, the colour is beautiful and really stands out. I love the matching leash, despite being made of a different material the colour is identical, showing the care that has gone into these products.
I am thrilled with my purchase, my only regret is not buying this sooner. The last word goes to Sylvester, he thinks it's pawsome!
