Want to bring your “indoor cat” outdoors? Use a harness and a leash. Cat too fat for the harness from the store? Use a belt!

Steps:
  1. Get an old skinny belt, about 1/2 inch wide.
  2. Cut about 2 inches off the end (the part that hangs after you tie it on yourself).
  3. Make a loop with the little end you cut off, and sew that together. This is your “baby loop”.
  4. String the rest of the belt through the baby loop to make your 8 shape.
  5. Bring the cat’s head through the first loop of the 8, then cross the strap over their back (through your baby loop), and loop it around their girth (behind the front legs) with the bottom part of your 8.
  6. Tie the belt with a buckle to the size you need. Make it tight enough to hold the cat (so it can’t wrestle free) but loose enough to allow for it not to choke.
  7. Clip a leash to the baby loop.

Tips:

  • Don’t use a belt thicker than 1/2 or 3/4 inch.
