Harnesses r Us

Tanaka watching mynahs on the wing...in his purple jacket.
The 3 boys have soft walking jackets
We also have a black one for Bujang. So we have all the 4 colours :)
These are from http://www.hdw-inc.com/walkingjackets.htm

This jacket is fastened by velcro. They come in snazzy colours and designs.
This makes Tanaka look like some Disco Dude
This is from http://www.joykatz.net/walkingjackets.htm.
Bujang has a black leather one and Akira has one with psychedelic cat patterns

Someone asked me at the entry about harnesses and which ones I prefer. The amigos have a variety of harnesses, both with buckles and velcro. I personally prefer the colours of the velcro ones but would stick to the walking jackets for safety sake. I am just not comfortable with the idea of walking my cat, near a street with velcro jackets.

This is NOT to say that the velcro jackets are unsafe. Bujang has escaped twice from the walking jackets. If he desires and wants to desperately, he would back up and pull at the leash and in this way, had twice gotten the walking jacket off. But these jacktes are secure and could be wrapped around the kitty closely. Just ensure that the kitty is comfortable with it before the walk. So if anyone desires to walk the kitty using a harness or jacket, they have to keep a close eye on the kitty and not ignore a sudden tug at the leash.

I bought both the velcro and walking jackets online. I have yet to see anything like these in Singapore stores.

Thanks so much for your advice! We will be weighing the pros and cons of the different harnesses this week and get some *very* soon for our two cats. Thanks San! :)

Thanks for all that great info. We love Tanaka's disco dude jacket!

We use Puppia harnesses which fit well and are very comfortable, but we will check these out too.
