After thinking about it for a long time, today was the day I took my handsome boy for a walk outside. He didn’t fuss when I put on his harness at all. As soon as we went outside he thought about go right back inside. Ignore the ugly welcome mat. It was a gift from our real estate agent 5ish years ago that we never replaced.
He quickly got excited and turned his wild explorer on. We stopped several times to snack on some grass.
He needs to learn that we walk where I lead us, not where he feels like walking but he did well. He wasn’t one of those cats that you say laying down and being dragged.
The good news is he did well, the bad news is that now I’m one of those crazy cat ladies that walks their cat.
