Taking your cat for a walk doesn’t have to be a drag. The PetSafe® Come With Me Kitty Harness and Bungee Leash™ make it easy for her to get some fresh air and sensory refreshments without curling into a scared limp lump on a line. City kitties and their country cousins can now recreate their own wild realms safely on the end of a secured leash. Birds and other critters can rest a little easier, knowing cats' deadly instincts  are leashed, too.
