    Just wanted to say thanks for the suggestion of the tent/tunnel.. I actually found some hidden at the pet store behind some other stuff. They were scared of it at first but now they absolutely love it. Panther loves to run through it full speed and slide across the floor. Happy likes to sit in it and surprise his brother. When I come home in the afternoon it is all mucked up and not where I left it, so I know they have fun with it during the day

    It started with Pooter when he was young and He expressed an interest in going outside. I had already lost 1 cat to traffic, so I tore an old nylon nightgown into long 1 inch wide strips and tied them together so I had a long elasticized "leash" about 15 feet long. I tied it off to a deck post and then just sat there and watched in the event he got tangled up (and he did, often). I used the nylon because sometimes cats will have a burst of energy and take off running and string would have jerked him off his feet at the end of it. This way it slowed him down gradually so it was like he was running through molasses when he got to the end of it. Eventually I moved to a neighborhood that I needed to keep them physically closer to me and we graduated to a standard retracting leash and by that time they were accustomed to the feel of harnesses and leashes. Today if I go near the cabinet with the leashes, they both come running. They really don't get to go out enough.
