    I am in the city, in an apartment with no yard. I had been thinking about getting a harness so that I could "walk" the cats and have them enjoy the outdoors. Do cats go for these? Are they uncomfortable? Has anybody tried these?

    They don't look too comfortable.

    Yes, my cat absolutely adores her harness and reacts similar to a dog when I get it out of the cupboard. We have a back garden that she likes to explore in her harness. Since you don't have one I would suggest that you find a quiet park or something like that. Cats are not like dogs... they will walk you. I cannot direct my cat on her harness and had to get a 'long lead' so that she could wonder freely.

    Trust me - my cat is quite tough and if she wasn't comfy she would let me know in no time. Just make sure you can get two fingers underneath each strap and you should be fine. My cat isn't a lap cat but she sits down and lets me attach all the straps etc etc. I do recommend them :)

    Yes I think it's a great idea.
    I have used a harness on mine and he didn't mind at all.
    They are so much safer than a collar and lead and more comfortable too!
