The natural cork Gatsby harness is here! Treat your cat to a vegan cat harness that's escape-proof, beautifully soft, and ready for every adventure...
Vegan, eco-friendly and sustainable: The cork Gatsby harness is crafted from one of the most eco-friendly materials in the world! In the low hills of Spain, farmers harvest the bark of ancient oak trees by hand, and turn it into luxuriouslysoft and supple cork 'leather'. Best of all, the tree isn't harmed or felled when its bark is removed, so it can live on for up to 200 years, capturing carbon dioxide from the air and turning it into more beautiful cork bark to be harvested.
Adventure-ready: The natural cork 'leather' is waterproof, durable and ultra lightweight - so that wherever your cat's adventures take them, their cork Gatsby harness is up to the adventure.
Fully escape proof: We've worked with hundreds of 'escape artist' cats to create a harness design that's truly inescapable! The Gatsby harness design blocks off all of the common paths of escape, including backing out.
The perfect support: Designed to give your cat support exactly where they need it, and not put any pressure around areas that they don't (e.g. the neck area - it's particularly good for asthmatic cats for this reason!)
Fully adjustable: The Gatsby harness is available in three fully adjustable sizes. Just take a look at our size & measuring guide for more info on choosing your cat's perfect size.
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.

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.
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: 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: Do you have any advice on how to harness train my cat?
We're always on hand with tailored help and advice to help you get your cat exploring happily in their Gatsby harness! If you're just starting out, we recommend starting with our handy guide to training your cat to walk on a harness and leash:How To Harness Train Your Cat.
If you still have any questions at all, simply drop us an email email@example.com, tell us a little about where your cat is in their harness training journey, and we'll be delighted to help out!
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.
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!
