Escape proof cat harness amazon – Melody Reviews

Spread the purrs

In the time I have had my two girls, Mio and Melody, I have tried several harnesses with them. Finding harnesses for them as kittens were easy because they were small. They were also much less stubborn. As they’ve grown it’s been more difficult to find things for them. I have to follow their lead more and more when trying new things.

I am Melody, nice to meet you.

With that in mind, I will have them write reviews of products. I’ll be at the keyboard, of course. We wouldn’t want them breaking a claw.

Escape Proof Cat Harness Amazon

Easy to put on and take off!Mio and Melody tabby and calico wearing harnesses

As kittens we lived in our harnesses. It wasn’t terrible and we did get used to it. However, sometimes we couldn’t get under them to groom a particular spot. When Meowmy would remove our harnesses the last thing we wanted was to go back in them. Some harnesses weren’t adjustable and we simply had to squeeze our heads through. This always ruined my whiskers.

With this cat harness, we don’t have that problem.

Sits low on the chest

As a cat and I don’t always think before dashing off after a bird or bug. Because of this, harnesses that sit around the neck are very uncomfortable and could injure me. How this sits low on the chest allows me to dash away without risk of choking, leaving only my pride injured.

How to use this harness

To use this harness you place your cat’s legs through the holes, pull it up, and using the velcro tabs attach it securely in place. The final step is to snap together the plastic piece and attach a leash to the D-ring.

From there you can take your cats for walks outside, inside, wherever!

Who should consider this harness?

Anyone interested in walking their cats on a regular basis should take the escape-proof harness into consideration. However, those with cats who are escape artists should consider other alternatives.

What I like about this cat harness

This harness is easy to put on and take off and is lightweight and comfortable. It also comes in several color options.

What I don’t like about this cat harness

While this harness claims to be escape-proof, I have found that it isn’t. If I bend and twist the right way I am able to pull my front legs through the holes. From there I push the harness down my body so it sits on the lower half of my body like a thick belt.

Because of how thick this is in the chest area it can make it difficult for cats to jump on and off things. Keep this in mind if you have a cat who likes to jump or climb.

For those with cats who like to jump a harness that sits a little closer to the neck may be a better choice. Such as this harness from the Hipet Store that comes in several decorative patterns. Being that this harness is closer to the neck it also may be more difficult for your cat to get out of it.

If you have a larger cat this X-large kitty Holster may be exactly what you need as some reviewers are saying this fits their 22 lbs cat.

Melody’s rating

I give this harness a 3 out of 5 stars

Why only 3?

While this harness claims to be escape-proof I found this isn’t true.  When wiggling around enough in this harness I can almost slip out of it completely. If you read the reviews on the Amazon products page other customers have stated the same. One person even posted a video of their cat rolling out of the harness.

The Amazon reviews are mostly positive. However, there are a few people saying that this does not fit on their larger cats. My sister and I are average size cats, however, Mio, who is at 15 lbs fits snugly into this harness and if it’s not pulled tightly the velcro will not stay in place.

This harness may be great for those just starting to walk cats who don’t mind being harnessed. For most other cats though it may be best to try another type of harness.

The size chart does limit the largest size to 16lb cats. The size chart also has measurements for the chest width. I highly recommend measuring and weighing your cat before buying.

Other customers have spoken to the fact that this harness truly is escape-proof,

My final thoughts on this escape-proof harness

This Escape Proof Harness is comfortable and easy to use.

However, it’s not as escape-proof as it claims to be. If you have a cat who doesn’t move much when going for walks who doesn’t mind being in the harness, this will be perfect for you and your cat. However, if your cat is an escape artist or enjoys jumping, climbing, and exploring during walks, I don’t recommend this at all.

  1. This is perfect! I’ve never wanted to take our cat out on a walk because I know they’ll run away. The dogs get walks every day and she has to sit in the window and watch. With this harness, I’m going to be able to take her out as well. She’s only 10 lbs so it sounds like they have one in the right size. Do you know if they are washable?

    • All house cats should go out for walks in my opinion. My girls love their daily walks! Even my boyfriend bonds with them during walks.

      While the manufacturer has not included cleaning instructions for these harnesses I throw mine in the washer and dryer with my clothes and they come out just purrfect every time!
