Fitting Instructions: The girth consists of one color of nylon, with two quick snap clasps and slide adjustments for a snug fit. The contrasting color comprises the shoulder piece and leash attachment, and feeds through the unique sternum slide hardware.
|Small||9" - 11" Girth (kittens to small cats|
|Medium||10.5" - 14" Girth (small to average cats)|
|Large||13" - 18" (average to large cats)|
- Open each side strap quick snap and identify parts. Connect bungee leash to leash attachment.
- Move sternum slide down to make the opening large enough for your catís head. Slide shoulder straps on either side of your catís head with leash attachment over the withers/back.
- Adjust side straps for a snug girth fit.
- Chest piece goes between legs and side girth straps behind front legs. Snap in place. (Repeat steps 3 and 4 as necessary until fit is snug.)
- Note that the connector “O” ring should rest on the belly, just behind the catís front legs.
- You may want to release the girth strap temporarily to make the next adjustment easier.
- Re-snap the side straps into place. Move the sternum slide to sit just below the catís breastbone so that it will not ride up to your catís throat area.
- Position the black rubber stopper near the leash connector to keep the shoulder straps in place. Check to see that tightening the leash does not result in the sternum slide riding up too high, putting pressure on the trachea. If it does, adjust the sternum slide to sit lower on your catís chest.
CAUTION: This harness is not intended to be used as a tie-out. Please supervise your cat while he is in the harness.
