Thankful Thursday Blog Hop - My Harness

Hi Pals,

I'm so thankful for my harness and how it fits and also thankful because I have been outside again!   My harness came from @NipandBones a year ago, but it didn't fit me well and I would somehow slip out of it.

M has a friend who is an expert seamstress.  That lady was kind enough to come over one day when I was wearing it and marked it for alterations.   Pals, this harness is great now - it fits me just right, is comfortable, and I don't mind wearing it.  We are so appreciative to M's friend - Lady B - for taking it in for us. he he - she said it was a "beast" of a job to do and probably would have been easier to make a new one. ha ha - this was her first experience with making alterations on a kitty.  By the way, I was a good boy and she didn't even poke me with a pin either.   



Whenever my peeps say I can go outside and show me the harness, I run right to the perch, jump up there and wait for D to put it on me.   Then after he gets it all secure, I hop down and run right to the patio door.    M says I'm well trained.  ha ha - I say I just want to get outside and quick!   Sorry that picture is pretty dark, but it was after supper at night when it was taken and we didn't use a flash.

We're also thankful that @PepiSmartDog hosts this blog hop every week.  Thanks to your human Pepi.

Mario that's so great that you use a harness! If only our kitties (or piggy) would, we could enjoy some walks.

That is awesome Mario! I bet making alterations for a cat is hard if you are used to humans. Your harness does look great though. Have fun outside!

Cathy Keisha said...

You’re so lucky to go out—I think. We have too many dogs around here.

You're a lucky boy, Mario! The Human had a harness for one of the kitties who came before. He LOVED to go for walks in the neighborhood. She tried to put it on me once cause she thought I would enjoy a little walkies....ha ha ha ha ha! Once she managed to stop the blood flow from her arms and hands, it took another hour to corner me and remove the partially attached harness. As you might imagine, I don't "do" outside.
