[Photo Journal/A-Z Photo Story Challenge] H is for Harness



Fats here.

I’m back for today’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge hosted by none other than Frizz. Letter tagged this week is H, and Tommy, our affectionate attack cat, is back. Have you ever tried putting a cat on a leash and walking it outside? It sounds crazy but that’s what I’ve been doing to Tommy. My boyfriend’s sister gave me an extra harness that her chihuahua doesn’t use anymore. It was a little challenging to put the harness on Tommy because he would get so excited to go out. He doesn’t mind the harness; he loves being outside. He doesn’t exactly walk around the neighborhood. He would pick a spot and nibble on the grass or roll over the warm cement.

He’s a strange fella and we love him for that.


“A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.”
— Ernest Hemingway


“Time spent with a cat is never wasted.”
— Colette


“As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.”
— Ellen Perry Berkeley

And below is my picture with Tommy before our afternoon “walk.”


What about you, dear readers?
What’s your photo story today?

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).

  1. Free Hugs from me to all …. come on by and get one.
    Love you cat. He’s very handsome. 😊

      Awww. That is so sweet of you, Isadora! Thank you. Don’t be fooled by his looks. He can be a very mean one. But I guess it’s because he’s old and grumpy. Hehe. Hugs back! =)


  2. we made the same experiment, but our cat likes to follow an own compass – not like a dog we learned – but she likes to sit on my shoulder when I’m walking around in our garden!

      Well, isn’t that something?! I wish I could let Tommy do the same but I’m pretty sure he would just jump and run off. Haha! It’s true, cats are their own masters, and they follow their own rules.


  3. A handsome cat indeed. I love the Collette quote to go with him. So very apt, Fats.

      Thanks, Tish! I love that quote, too. It’s the best I’ve seen, and very true. =)


  4. Handsome kitty. I love that you take him for a walk. 🙂
