You’ve finally decided it’s time to train your cat to use a harness. But, what do you need? What should you look for in a harness for cats? Here are 8 tips on how to get started.
1) Introduce cat to harness by using a treat or toy.
For this task, you will need to be creative. A cat’s attention span is short and it likes the chase so if you want your furry friend on a harness then use that knowledge. When introducing them to their new accessory, present the strap as a toy or treat they can get at by pulling back from them with one hand while holding onto their collar in front of themselves but out of reach for now: they should head straight towards what was just presented and try not to let go when being tugged backwards – once he starts going after his “prize” gradually move him away from it until its gone; eventually release both hands during an encounter like this where there are no distractions.
2) Place harness on cat and have them walk around the house with it on.
The cats will love this! Tie a harness around the waist of your feline and let them walk freely through the house. They’ll get exercise, you can take some time off to do things that don’t involve cleaning up hairballs on your rug or worrying about whether they’re getting enough food or water while you’re away from home for work (or play!), and they might even enjoy being out in public with their new accessory.
3) Gradually increase the amount of time they are wearing it until they can wear it for an entire day without any issues.
4) Make sure that your cat is comfortable when wearing their harness, so make sure you’re not putting too much pressure on their neck or stomach area.
Your furry friends should be able to walk without feeling any discomfort when wearing their harness. A good way of doing this is by not putting too much pressure on the neck or stomach area, and also ensuring they are well-fed so that there isn’t a need for them to fight against the leash while trying to get away from you
You want your cat’s trip outside with its new collar as easy as possible! Make sure it can comfortably take in gentle breaths at all times; some cats may feel uncomfortable if something presses up against either side of their body soon after being fitted into an unfamiliar item like a dog harness. You’ll know your kitty feels safe because he or she won’t try resisting restraint during walks around town…or anywhere else
