This is a belt with abuckle that is a container large enought to house one full grown black cat and or several kittens comfortably.

when wearing the belt the wearer may feel free to cross any street wherever and whenever they please, drivers will see the cat belt and thus will slow and immediatly reroute so as not to let the black cat cross their path.

this idea will reduce pedestrian injury as the cat will function as a sort of feline force field. This idea will also foster cat adoption as they will have a greater purpose. last thing is this it would be difficult to identify if there was actually a black cat enclosed. So you could fill your cat belt with the kitty type that you prefer. The presumption of "black cat inside" will keep you safe.

       Non-pedestrian dog suspenders ?

       Honey, I need to pop over the road and get some cigarettes, have you seen the cat belt? And where's Whiskers, Fluffy, Tibbles, Smokey and Max, could you herd them up for me?

       Belt is a bit subtle, better to have the cat living in a plexiglass enclosure mounted atop your hat.

       Alternatively, they may just floor it to get past you before you cross their path. I'm not sure that there's a special superstition about running over a black cat.

       I don't really think drivers will see the cat belt, nor understand the idea. Not Product:General either.

       I think this idea reeks of feline racial profiling. Shame on you, vfrackis. Shame!

       //...large enought to house one full grown black cat and or several kittens comfortably// - you don't say whether these cats are alive or dead (perhaps stuffed - this idea could provide a valuable boost to the taxidermy industry).

       I like the world where vfrakis lives, where one must invoke superstition to avoid being run down in the street. And I like the presumption that one must fill the belt with some sort of cat, and that drivers will worry it is a black one. As opposed to filling it with a fake cat, or a ferret, or some beers and spare pants.
