Maybe its got something to do with where he came from?
He was in and out like a yoyo at first!
He went in and I could hear him shouting from upstairs, so he came out again and loved it!
Yes, I do think it might have something to do with where he came from!
I think he might have felt that as I was taking him outside I was going to leave him there

this is the idea I wanted to do walk them with harrness, but my mums insisting to let them roam free.
the kittys loook lovely.
Yes, they're on a dog peg! I never leave them unattended and we don't have trouble from the other cats - as the three of them will scare them off at first glimpse! We also have a great routine for getting back in the house if anything is scary!
It would be lovely if you could get your Mum to let you harness train your kitties - I know they would love it!

It takes quite a lot of time and patience to get them used to their harnesses in doors, building up the time they wear it, then adding the lead! There are a few threads in Care and Grooming that might help you with the training!
Tibby initially got floppy legs when he first had his harness on!
You'd have thought I'd strapped a ten tonne weight to his back the way he'd flop!

Claire, i hold onto my harnesses and walk with them, when they decide to that is
Awww, bless Rosie and Sophie!
The more often they get to go out, the more comfortable they will become!
I think it takes quite a while to get used to the sounds too!!
At least they definitely know how to get back into the house!
