Paws Aboard Life Jacket and Designer Life Jackets Keep Pets Safe on the Water

Provide ultimate buoyancy and high visibility to keep pets safe on the water. Designed for dogs, but can also be used for cats. Constructed to provide buoyancy, along with a cozy, secure fit.

Paws Aboard life jackets feature an advanced breathable mesh underbelly for proper draining and drying, which provides your cat more comfort and healthier conditions than traditional pet life jackets made with neoprene, which can cause heat exhaustion and chafing. 

Safety features include:

  • Reflective strips for maximum visibility
  • Bright, high-visibility colors
  • Handle on top for quick and easy grabbing by hand or with a boat hook

Other features include:

  • Adjustable nylon straps
  • Quick-release buckles
  • Heavy-duty yet more comfortable Velcro® fastening system around the belly and neck to keep securely fastened
  • Available in neon yellow and three prints
  • Sold in 4 sizes. See sizing chart below.

Shipping is a flat $14 for this item. These ship via FedEx.

Sizing Chart:

Size Weight Range Length Neck (Around) Body Girth
XXS 0-6 pounds 6.5" 7"-9" 11"-16"
XS 7-15 pounds 8.5" 8"-12" 15"-19"
S 15-20 pounds 11" 12"-20" 17"-22"
M 20-50 pounds 14" 20"-25" 21"-30"

Be aware that these need to fit rather snugly so that cats cannot squirm out of them. A cat in the water is going to be a bit panickly and wiggly, and you don't want him falling back in if he slips out of his life preserver as you're fishing him out. Look at the image of the cat in one so you can see how they look when they are fitting properly. Some customers have thought the size they ordered was too small, when in fact it was fitting exactly as it was supposed to. However, several customers have had to exchange theirs for larger sizes because they do tend to run a bit small, and the size chart above was designed for dogs. We have asked for cat sizing, but have so far been unsuccessful. If you're uncertain which size would be correct for your cat based on the above measurements, go with the larger of the two you're considering.



We're a small business, founded by a genuine old maid cat lady who loves her cats the same as if they were her children, just like you do yours. All products are shipped directly to you from our suppliers; we don't maintain any inventory. This eliminates double shipping, warehousing and staffing that would drive up costs, allowing us to price our items as reasonably as possible. When it comes to shipping, we charge you only what our suppliers charge us to ship the items to you. If our suppliers include shipping in the prices of the items, we offer the same to you. We are committed to making our site accessible to all. If you have problems navigating our site, please contact us and we will meet with our site hosting company to fix the problem. We try to treat all our customers the way we'd like to be treated ourselves, and appreciate your taking the time to get to know us a little.
