It's not really how the toy was intended to be played with but still a good buy. Cat13 Laugh

Ah, what fun! That second video is the best. Bouncy

I bought my cats a tree, and they sat in the box it came in. Hehe, it was so silly.

So this isn't Akiko or the kittens but I thought I'd go ahead and put it here rather than start a new thread.

This is one of my other kitties, Spiderman. She's the one that was sick for a while.  She turned 11 in february. In March she developed an infection in one of her back legs. The vet prescribed an antibiotic but it wasn't getting any better. She stopped standing or walking, I had to help her to the litter box. The infection spread to her other back leg, even though the vet had her on two different antibiotics at the time. She was barely eating or drinking and losing weight, diarrhea from the meds. Long story short, I was afraid I was going to lose her but the vet prescribed this stronger antibiotic as a last resort and she finally starting getting better!  She started standing again end of April and walking again around the beginning of May. She's getting better every day but her back legs are still weak and likely she'll suffer from joint pain the rest of her life. We recently started her on a joint supplement with hopes of it helping.

Anywho, the point of this post. She started begging to go outside. Before all this, she did often spend some time in the yard. We've had her since she was weaned from her mom and it's something we've always allowed her, though we decided some time ago that more recent cat additions to our family would not get free range outside time.  But since going through all this, she's cut off from outside time too. So I picked up a harness and leash to try with her. Figured it was a good compromise. This is what she thinks of it:


We toyed with the whole harness and leash idea for our blind kitty but he totally freaked so we dropped the idea for him. Spiderman doesn't freak out, she just looks annoyed, so I'm hoping she'll get used to it so that she can enjoy the outdoors again. Anyone have any experience with leashing a kitty?  Any tips?

She's beautiful! I love kitties that are that color. I'm glad she's doing better.

My little, black cat goes outside during the day and is usually in at night. We tired her on a leash when we first got her and just let her walk us wherever... not much fun because a lot of times she just wanted to sunbathe. lol I hope it'll be a satisfying alternative for Spiderman! Cute name, too. Smile

Thank you. My oldest son named her when he was around 5. Her full name is Spiderman Puss In Boots Legolas. Laugh

We were definitely pretty laid back about indoor/outdoor kitties for a long time. Then Chico lost his (only) eye, so we kept him indoor only and I decided that any newer kitties would be indoor only (which of course Akiko still managed to run off for 3 days anyway Rolling Eyes ). Spiderman did what your kitty does, out some during the day in at night, until the infection. It wasn't even related to her going out but I don't want to take any more risks, especially with her being sore and weak still.

My girl cat really liked the harness. She's pretty old though. All she wanted to do was lay in the sun and feel the wind on her fur. I love your cat's face in the harness, lol.

Me too. Shame they won't stay that pretty blue-gray.

Yeah, that would be really pretty if they could be like that forever.

I stumbled across these pictures of Akiko (the kittens' mama) when she was a baby.




She was born to a feral mama near a farm where my MIL occasionally keeps some of her horses.  So she came here instead of being dropped at a shelter.

Oh gosh, Spiderman Puss In Boots Legolas!! That's a terrific name. Laughing

The white stripe on Akiko's tail is neat. That baby is adorable... she looks so fluffy and soft! Love

I love the ring on Akiko's tail too. I was disappointed when none of the babies had it.

The kittens sure do love this crinkle tunnel. It's actually ferret-sized!  I'll have to pick up a larger cat-sized one for whatever kittens are left and the other kitties.  



So far most of the people who have expressed interest in the kittens have backed out already (or couldn't take any to begin with). Only one, Melaina, still has a maybe home lined up. I guess there's no rush. They still have at least 5 more weeks with mama anyway.
