How does the design of the harness prevent escape?

Cats escape from harnesses by backing out. Other harness makers will tell you to keep your cat from getting in a position to do this. Our harness transfers the force of a cat backing out to safely squeeze your cat when they pull back. All the pressure is directed around your cat’s belly, not to the neck or other sensitive structures. Our shock cord is specially made to be tough and long lasting. As a bonus, the squeezing action tends to calm down a panicking cat!

Can I tether my cat?

With supervision, you can tie your cat to something solid. We have our cats outside the studio, in a courtyard for several hours at a time. The main concern is that cats love to tangle themselves on anything they can.

Do I need to supervise my cat?

For short periods of time, once your cat is used to being outside. You can leave them alone - to answer the phone or get a cup of tea or coffee, for instance.
