4 Main Points for Fitting:

Note down the measurement: The girth of your cat is the most important measurement that you need to fit him for a harness, and you can measure your cat around his body just under his front legs.


Leave the buckle on the side of the harness loose: There is a small loop that can be slipped around your cat’s neck, with such a unit, a finger can be slithered from the loop to the cat's neck, which has the similar feature with a cat collar or cat leash. Also, the loop is adjustable, you can control through the central D ring by moving the cat's harness material backward or forward to make cat comfortable. And the D ring usually is located on the top of the cat's shoulders, not on the opposite side of her chest or belly.


Locate the large loop under your cat's stomach: The large loop should be placed on the opposite of her front legs and buckle the loop shut. This loop is also adjustable, you can operate the harness to the suitable position.


Raise cat's front leg: After all loops being equipped, the last determining factor in harness fitting is whether her elbow can be slipped through the harness. If it can, it means the part around her belly is too loose. If it can't, it means the harness is well fitted.
