Made from 100% soft and non-abrasive cotton, the Kitty Holster Cat Harness is extremely comfortable for your pet to wear. As a reason, most cats are not weary about slipping into this. It features secure hook and loop closures that allows you to release your cat easily after the walk. A D-ring for attaching the leash is positioned perfectly.
Cat leashes in combination with a harness is a safe and secure way to allow your purring pet to appreciate the great outdoors. A collar and identification tag is the simplest and most economical way to make sure your indoor/outdoor cat finds a way back to you should they get lost. Outdoor cats love their freedom, so keep them safe with a great collar and identifying tag. Not every feline feels comfy in a collar though, and may wiggle their way out and away quicker than you may realize. For this reason, it’s recommended that pet parents try walking their cat indoors so they can familiarize and get comfortable in a harness before heading outside.

Give your indoor cat quality time outside by going for a walk.
Step 1: Use a harness and leash Use a small, H-type harness that fits the cat, and a cotton or nylon leash. A harness fits if you can barely get a finger between the cat and the harness.
Step 2: Get the cat used to the harness Get the cat used to the harness by putting it on them without buckling it.
Tip Put the harness on the cat during playtime when the cat is more likely to be comfortable.
Step 3: Reward the cat Reward your cat with plenty of treats and affection. Petting your cat during your training sessions will help your feline friend associate the harness with positive feelings.
Step 4: Buckle one loop Continue putting the harness on the cat each day until the cat ignores it. After that, you can buckle one of the harness's loops for 30 seconds.
Step 5: Build up to three loops Build up to buckling the entire harness, one loop at a time. The process can take several months. Once your cat is comfortable with the harness completely buckled, let them walk around while wearing it.
Step 6: Add the leash Add the leash when your cat is comfortable with the harness. Let them walk around with the leash for as long as it takes to get used to it.
Step 7: Go for practice walks Go for practice walks around the house for a few days.
Step 8: Go for the first walk Go for a walk when your cat is used to you holding the leash. Let them lead you on the first few walks. Bring treats along for encouragement.
Tip Make sure it is quiet outside when you go for your walk. You don't want your cat to get spooked.
Step 9: [Tug the leash lightly] Tug the leash lightly to lead the cat on subsequent walks.
Step 10: Be patient Be patient. Teaching a cat to walk on a leash takes time. Take the training process day by day, moving on to each step only when your cat is ready.
