A kitty harness that your cat will adore! Discover the Gatsby escape-proof cat harness, created with the help of hundreds of 'harness Houdini' cats, to create a soft, stylish harness that is resistant to cat escapes...
No escape cat harness:The Gatsby was designed with the help of ateam of escape-artist cats around the world who tested each harness prototype to escape-artist destruction! With their help, we pioneered the unique Gatsby harness design, which blocks off all of the favoured methods of escape (including backing out) to create a safe cat harness that can contain even the smartest and wriggliest of cats!
Crafted from luxurious natural leather: For a luxury cat harness that is soft and supple, and has a natural scent that instantly puts your cat at ease.
Simple to put on: No need to put anything over your cat's head or disturb them with noisy velcro fixtures. Just pop your cat's front paws through the harness loops and clip up the single buckle!
Suitable for cats of all shapes & sizes: The Gatsby cat harness is available in three fully adjustable sizes, so that no matter how large or small your cat, there's a Gatsby for them.
Super strong: We know you need the safest cat harness for your cat, which is why the Gatsby is fully lined with Felitech™ low-friction / high strength bonded lining. The result is a super strong harness that is able to handle cats as heavy as 18kg / 40lbs.

Q: My cat is very wriggly and has escaped from every harness they've ever had! Is the Gatsby harness really escape-proof?
A: As part of the development process for the Gatsby cat harness we recruited a team of cat testers worldwide that we called our ‘Harness Houdinis’ - cats who had escaped from multiple harnesses in the past! With their help we’ve been able to make a harness that tackles all of the main kitty escape methods, including backing out, and to date we’ve never had an escape.
The main thing to ensure is that you pick the right size Gatsby harness and make sure its a nice snug fit when on (the back straps on the Gatsby tuck in behind a cat’s elbows which prevents them from wriggling out backwards). Justclick here to view the size & measuring guide!
Q: Do you make a vegan harness? / Do you use ethical leather?
We are passionate about sourcing ethical materials with the smallest environmental footprint for all of our products. Our collars and harnesses are made from European leather only, which is produced to the very highest welfare, ethical and environmental standards in the world. We use leather in our products because cats love it and it helps to make them happy in their collars and harnesses. But it's also because our cats are carnivores and eat a predominantly meat-based diet - so our ethos is to create a long-lasting product from the by-products of that industry.
However, we know that some would prefer not to use any animal products at all, which is why we have also created a vegan range of Gatsby harnesses, using vegan cork 'leather' which is sustainably produced close to our workshop in Spain!

Q: I have a Chihuahua / small dog - is the Gatsby harness suitable for them? And how do I find the right size?
A: 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.
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.
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!
