How tight should the harness be?
To maximise your cat’s comfort and safety, you want to ensure a snug fit! Adjust straps until the harness feels nice and secure - you want to be able to fit one fingertip only between your cat and their harness when they are in neutral standing position.
Achieving a good snug fit is important for escape proofing but also comfiest for your cat (the less they can feel the harness slide across their fur as they move, the more relaxed they'll be!).
My cat has been using another style of harness, and seems a little bit uncomfy or freaked out in their new ExploraCat harness
If your cat has been using a different style of harness in the past, you may find that they require a little bit of time to settle into wearing their new ExploraCat style of harness, and get used to the new sensations of where the harness touches their body. You might like to take a look at our Harness First Timers Page - it's written for harness first-timers but the process is the exact same for kitties who are switching over from a different style of harness!
