I love this! now- if you could simply tell me how you got your cat IN this- I would be convinced to try & make my cat one! She looks obedient here, but she would not tolerate that cute little walking leash! Sad Also, we rescued our cat & we don't know what kind she is- do you think she's a Bengal type like yours? idk if you are cat smart like that. I can't tell!
Oh I love your idea & I so want to take my cat for a stroll. Also- I think the fabric you chose is awesome!!!

Thats adorable!  Both the kitten and the jacket.  My big cat squeezed out of his harness all the time.  I'm going to have to try something like this.

ok, first off: omgcute!!! Cheesy

i have a question about the design - why the L shape? is there an advantage to that? I currently have my cat walking in a ferret harness, but its not the most stylish of harnesses so I wouldn't mind trying something like this...

I am wondering about the "L" shape myself. I think it may be for comfort around the belly area. Perhaps kitties are more sensitive to that than other critters.
I think you did a lovely job and the fabric looks fine. It's not a floral, it looks like a stripe to me. Stripes are masculine. Smiley

The L shape allows for maximum adjustment. I was dubious about it too - another reason why I wanted to make one to see what Tesla thought before I tried to order one. Seeing it on him really helped. When it's in an L, you can make it so that it can so that the fabric wraps all the way around the body at it's smallest size, and then just gets bigger from there. And no matter how you adjust, the buckles are always at the side. It makes it much easier to get it on the cat, since you're not having to fiddle with the snaps being under the tummy. It's easy to put on and adjust, but it's also a little bit more secure than a regular harness.

I think it's masculine too! But because it doesn't have the third buckle at the bottom, it sort of flares out. When my husband saw it, he was like "Oh my god, did you just make my cat a dress?" But he was pretty impressed with how well the design worked out and how comfortable the kitty was with it.

Thanks so much for all the compliments - I will sew another one soon and can make a tute then if people like.
