    Tron,

    What on earth do you have your cat hooked up to? They don't pull near as well as Huskies :)

    Ric3677, now that was funny.

    I do need to find a few of those harnesses for our kittys as they would love to be outside.

    How do you walk a cat on a leash? I tried a few times. It was more pulling than walking. Do you strap him to a roller skate and pull him along on his back? I think that's the only thing that would work.

    You can get Cat harnesses at any pet store. If the weather is fair, Kitty will usually want a bit of the outdoors and he will stand at the back door and look up at his harness, which he slips right into. I then take him out and let him brows about the yard.

    Here he is wanting out and you can see his harness on the handle of the door wall. He knows the rules and he aint going outside without putting his harness on.

    You could buy a retractable lanyard at one of the construction supply stores. If Kitty gets in trouble (coyote) or misbehaves, just hit the lanyard button.

    Click, Zoom. Kitty is back in your arms.

    I would probably buy a catchers glove at Dicks too. Face mesk, chest protector and first aid kit is optional.

    RIC3677 ... the harness is what Tron used so that Kitty could pull the piano up the stairs for him ... of course he had to use a whip.

    This cat was brought by a California game warden to a friend's shop to have it mounted. He said they were going to donate it to a Museum.... Jim

    I hope the cat in that last picture was butchered up to eat. That is the best game meat there is.

    Good to eat? Not in my experience - right down there with Sage Hen and/or RockChuck - really bad. The cat in the top post looks like it is starving because it can't hunt - notice the back leg/foot. Those are the ones that cause the problems around people .....

    Do a search and look for the "Cat Carrier"

    Quite a unique fixture, but I'll bet you would have to be really suited-up to install it!

    I heard the tighter you turned the crank, the larger kitty's eyes got!!!

    We had a Persion cat that we used to take in our camper. She weighed a little over 16 lbs. Any time we got the harness out she knew she was giong camping and she loved it. Snap the leash on it and she was the perfect lady.

    I saw a lady pushing a baby buggy looking thing that was some sort of cat carrier. It was the most pathetic thing I've ever seen. The cat didn't look too happy either.

    I was just yanking your chain Joe..I know what they are for, even if nobody in the town I reside in do. Every cat in a three block radius uses the dirt under my back deck to "poo" in during the winter months. One was so bad I had to trap him. That was one PO'ed cat.

    That was the last cat I trapped since the lady at the pound made me feel like the criminal.

    Nice to see someone responsible for their pet. Not trying to get gushy on you. LOL
