Our New Easy-On Cat Harness

For Throwback Thursday I thought I would share a post I did almost exactly four years ago. It is when I bought Frankie’s harness that he still uses today.

After the trouble Frankie caused for me during the last couple of cat outings, I decided it was time to put him back on a harness. The harness he had was just too hard to put on a struggling cat so I looked for a harness that was very easy to put on. I found one from a company called Bark Appeal. Judging by the name, I assume it is a dog harness but it also works for cats. This harness has two Velcro strips and putting it on is just a matter of wrapping it around his neck and abdomen.

      It’s worth another try. Puck used to love going outside but after we moved I had to use a harness for him. The first attempt ended in failure because a car drove by when I opened the door and it freaked him out. He never wanted to go out again until we built the catio but he died a couple of days after that.

    That’s the type of harness we got for Teddy – different brand but same idea. Sure is easy to put on and he can’t get out of it. We had to get Extra Large for BIG TED!!
