I did it! After lord knows how long (probably over a year of trying again and again), I think I *REALLY* have Zeeba harness trained! I'm so thrilled. I love taking him places, and he loves going places, but frequently I worry about something spooking him, or him even blowing away (well, catching a tail wind and flapping off my arm). If we're outside, despite him being clipped, he could always flutter into a street or what not, and I HATE carrying that darned cat carrier all over the place to put him in when we're crossing parking lots!
So today we weant to a very small pet store together, and sat on the floor for awhile with the harness, and I just put it on. Well, it took a little work--anyone who's held a feather teather could tell you theres more to it than "putting it on." LOL. I was about ready to slap whomever came up with the design for it. Anyhow, he let me put it on, fiddled with it a little, but we kept moving. If I stopped and poked around, he'd fiddle quite a bit, and I didn't want him chewing through it (since we hadn't even paid for it yet). In the end, I decided to buy it and he wore it out of the store. In the car I took it off so he wouldn't chew it, but when we got home we did some laps around the house with him in it.
Finally! Okay; now a silly question. Do you think it could have been the color before that made him more touchy about it? The last was red if I remember correctly, and the new one is blue.
I wish my digital camera was working! When it is (or when I get a new one), i'll post pictures of him in it.
