We've decided it's unfair to only let one of our two kitties be indoor outdoor so we're letting them both outside.
The problem is Kes want's to go out at night too. Black cat in a dark street not a good idea. (Our street would be better lit if the power company would come fix the street light that has a short in it and keeps burning out bulbs every 10 days)
Anywho I bought her 2 different harness's to make reflective but none fit right. Kes is odd shaped.
So I bought 2 1.00 dog collars gutted them and used satin ribbon and reflective tape and made her a new harness.
She actually likes it a lot and purred when I put it on her.
(she's squinting from the flash and you can see the reflective tape at work!)



(right after I put it on her. She's testing to make sure it fits unlike the previous two store bought ones.)

Geared up now let me out!
Please note this harness is not meant to serve any purpose other than be reflective.
Love to know what you think!

I used very big stitches so it will tear more than break. Also why I used a satin ribbon. It frays pretty easy. I thought about using glue but didn't think that would stand up to regualr wear in the house. lol
Though the nice thing about it is it's a harness so should it get caught and not break it won't choke her. And she's good about meowing if she's stuck somewhere. Smiley
Our outdoor kitties don't go more than a few houses down the street so It would be easy to find her if she didn't come home. Though they are pretty good about coming home when I call within a few minutes. Smiley
