Let your cat get used to the feel of that on its body then introduce the leash for short periods, lots of fuss etc. This worked for us. Although she never liked any kind of tugging motion on the lead - she had to take me for a walk not the other way round! Good luck!
Maia did the same when I started introducing her to the harness, the same way, in the house first
. Sometimes she would just flop over, like she was shackled!
Was just so happy she didn't flip out and go cat-alistic!
