Haha cats on harnesses (I assume that is what you were talking about Laki) are hilarious sometimes. I took our old cat Bandit out in one since he's become an indoors only cat, to visit the neighbours. Once he realised I was not trying to kill him he was happy to walk on it.
Luckily we have lots of shrubs in our front garden so people don't think we are completely nuts.
I have one who I put on a harness. She totally freaked out, leaped 3 feet in the air and snapped the breakaway latch. Took off across the back yard with the harness and leash trailing behind her and another of our cats chasing the leash. I wish I'd gotten a video but it happened so fast.
Only one of ours hated the harness. He much preferred the car as his mode of transportation. Mum used to drive him loose in the car with us when we got dropped off at school.
How did you manage to catch your cat? Did she just eventually hide somewhere or come back?
When I was younger, I once tied our car cat to a metal cat cage so he would stay still while I brushed him. He took off around the house dragging the cage behind him and we had to wait until he wedged himself somewhere before we could get him.
Haha yeah. It was one of those decisions made where your brain vacates your head.
My mum once tried to let one of our current cats out of the carry cage while she was alone and driving the car. Cat proceeded to nearly claw her face off and so she had to pull over and wrestle her back into the cage.
