Carlos Houdini

By looking at this picture you might not necessarily think of me as a great escape artist. But that I am for sure. There is no harness or leash that could stop me from escaping if I really set my mind into it. Well, at least the two sets of harness my mom has bought so far...

Anyhow, the woods, birds, bugs and mice at the lake have been so tempting, that I have escaped my old and new harness a couple of times. I even got myself out of them both at the same time, since my mom put both of them on me at the same time trying to keep me properly on the leash. Well, it didn't stop Carlos Houdini! 

I was even able to resist the lure of the red dot! So far they have used the red dot as a sure way to get me out of my favourite hide-out under the cottage. But today I was so determined to resist the red dot that it didn't work for me at all! Allthough, the minute my mom put the dot away and called me, I came to her. I noticed that I was short on scritches and went to get my daily dose. I'm a cat and I can change my mind. Then she caught me and took me inside the cottage... Well, my favourite kibble was waiting for me and the bed of the humans was unoccupied, so everything was ok after all.

So, my mom has a question I actually wouldn't want to publish here, but since she's my secretary, I guess I have no choice... Does your humans have a good tip of a foolproof harness for me? And where could one get ones hands on one?

  2. Ha! We knew you were an escape artist!
    We do not know about harnesses, but other cats on the blogs use them.
    Maybe Summer will have some good ideas.
    After all, you do not want to be stuck indoors ;)

  3. We use a Puppia harness...they are pretty good. There are some sturdy-looking "walking jackets" on eBay and Etsy that look pretty Houdini-proof...good luck!

  4. The Sturdi Products walking vest is pretty secure: Um, and yes, that's me in one photo, and I don't recall me giving them permission!
