Harness Advise!?

Hey guys, Mom wanted me to ask you guys about harnesses. She hears a lot of you saying that you go out with a harness outside when it is good weather. Turns out my harness is now too small, so she's looking into getting a new one. So what we'd like to know is if you have a harness, what kind do you have, and would you recommend it? and would you trust it if a cat doesn't want to be in it or suddenly bolts?

The harness we have we never really got to use, so we don't know. Summer was over before we knew it last year and the weather just got worse and worse. And we would love to pick out a harness that she can trust and that we would like. She doesn't ever want to be in a situation where one of us somehow squirms out. Obviously she'll do the training inside first but Mom's a tad over-cautious, Mol.

Also if you have any recommendations that you have heard is good but have never tried, Mom would love to hear them.
We have the "Come with me Kitty" brand, she 'thinks' its pretty good as far as some harnesses go but she wants to know if there are other or better options out there.

Thanks guys ♥

Our whole family has harnesses.
We have different kinds .... cause some of us gets or tries to gets loose....when we don't want to go in or don't want to listen.
Some of use even go for rides in our stroller.
We are just poor little spoiled kitties. MOL!

We have several types...cause My brofue Zeeke always tries to get loose. They found that the H harness is best for him. Every now and than, when he doesn't want to go in ... he makes himself real limp and tries to get out of it.
We also have the figure 8 ones. Cleo likes that. When she pulls on in it slips tighter. But she can't fit in it anymore.
We also have some that small dogs wear. Don't know what they are called.
We love the jacket type. They are almost impossible to get out of. Zeeke did manage once or twice.
Just go look in the pet section of your store(s) and check them all out. Look at the doggies ones too.
Good Luck!
PS don't forget to messure your baby or take with you to the store for proper fit.

Thanks Kibbles. Ya Mom really wants to find a harness that she feels safe taking us out in, especially since we've never been outside before! (well not before Mom took us in)

I'm guessing the H harness is the regular harness you see most places? and the 8 harness I'm not sure if i've seen cat ones. Mom says she's not sure about dog ones since they aren't designed with cats in mind, but if they work we suppose they are an option.

One thing is that there is not big selection of stuff up here, basically what you see at petsmart is what you get. Then the come with me kitty harness we have is from another store, we haven't seen any other ones. Online is an option too...

Thanks Novi!! Its good to see you. We'd love to hear what you're harness is too.
