Most people have trouble getting the cats into the carrier. I, on the other hand, have trouble getting my cat out.

I wanted to take him on a walk and get nice photos today. He was so comfortable in his backpack from the drive into the mountains that he refused to get out and walk. I then fell into a creek, so we both decided that was enough of that and got coffee instead.

After a few outings that went rather badly for Dave and I for various reasons, finally we managed to have a good day today. I am so proud of Dave for being able to settlw down after being overstimulated/spooked, and I’m proud of me for recognizing his good behaviour and rewarding it immediately. I hope this is a good sign for our hikes this summer!
We ended up driving to my favourite coffee shop in the mountains, and Dave napped in the sun the whole way instead of pacing. He got a taste of my salmon lox bagel and was purring and kneading. He never purrs!
After we went on a hike and he had a great time splashing in some mud puddles. Ended the trip with a pet store visit and he got some treats from his favourite employees. There were a lot more happy tails today than I’ve seen on Dave in a long time. It’s the little things, yknow?

Is a five (almost six) month cat too late to harness/leash train?
Sueanoi here,
there’s no such thing as too late to train.

Shilo has been Extra Bastard the past couple weeks, with everyone cooped up from the weather. It got really nice this week, so today we adventured in the backyard!
He climbed the trees four or five times and climbed onto the shed roof at one point. He has really gotten big and strong over the past couple months!

Dave walks fastest once we’re on the final stretch home. He knows treats wait for him there!

Hey! I was wondering what you recommend for a lightweight harness that works well in the heat? I live in the southern US and from about mid-spring to mid-fall it stays over 90 degrees consistently. I’m hesitant to use an H harness because I worry about my cat getting spooked and trying to run and injuring himself on the harness, since it doesn’t distribute weight much (from what I can tell).
Unfortunately there are not many harnesses that aren’t heavier jacket harnesses or H harnesses. Many dog harnesses are supposedly better at distributing weight, but cats are more likely to escape dog harnesses. I’ve heard of a couple that fit your description that I’ll list below, but I haven’t personally had any experience with them.
The Supakit Harness is a step-in harness rather than an H harness. I’ve heard some good things about it and I know a number of people on instagram who use it.

The Gooby Harness is another one I have seen suggested. It seems pretty sturdy, but it is designed for dogs, not cats. Cats may be more likely to slip out of dog harnesses, but it says it’s escape proof so I’m not entirely sure.
Tumblr media
Unfortunately I can’t find any more that are escape proof and not jacket or H harnesses. Personally I use the Surfer Cat Mav harnesses. For the most part they are pretty decent, though on the rare occasion Dave has hurt his neck spooking in that harness.

Been looking up films featuring autistic characters/actors when i came across this summary on autism.org in a list of recommended movies:
Elvis plays a physician who runs a medical clinic in a poor neighborhood. Three nuns are sent to assist Elvis in his medical practice. A parent brings her girl to the clinic for an evaluation and treatment. The girl is diagnosed as having autism because she rocks, does not want to be held, and does not respond to sounds. Elvis treats the girl, and she begins to break out of her autism.
i am so hung up on “she begins to break out of her autism” and the fact someone thought a physician was the best person to do it.
