Lupine Harness (9"-14") Color: Cherry Blossom
Just what I wanted
It took a bit to figure out how to put it on a young cat who never stops moving...but once we had it on, we were good to go. Loosy (crazy name) isn't crazy about being tethered to a leash, but the harness doesn't bother him at all.

I had an old buckle-type harness that fit my young Maine Coon wonderfully, but it took 10 minutes and much fuming to get it on. This one is wonderful. Very easy to put on, adjustable, and secure. Toby didn't object to it one bit. So glad I bought this product!

Seems to work well
I have two 5 month old kittens that I am gradually introducing to the 'outside' world.
The halters fit snugly, and after initially trying to get out of them while in the house, they finally accepted. I now just put the halters on when I take them out on the back deck. I want them to associate 'outside' with the halters and leashes.
They do not try to escape, though we have not encountered in sudden noises that might frighten them.
As they get older, I'll transition them to collars and only use the halters when we travel.

I adopted an 8 month old rescue cat raised indoors by a foster family. Read extensive commentary on this site and others about the best harness to buy and settled on the Lupine H-style. Though my vet sold Lupine, they did not carry the H-style and their leashes were only 4' so was pleased to find what I wanted on Foster & Smith. The first session of harness training was akin to a wild west rodeo--just getting it on was like steer wrestling with claws and teeth everywhere as though this was a great roughhousing game. Once on, it was like watching a bucking bronco tearing around the house. Admittedly, I was not experienced in the safety latches; they are small and take some practice to work. Sizing it while it was on him was a non-conversation so had to do adjustments in between sessions until I finally got it right. But with much practice on my part to improve my skill with the latches, and patience and maturity on his part--getting it on him is no longer an olympic event. Today we went outside for the first time and it was wonderful--well worth the time and effort invested over the past month knowing he was secure in a new experience..
