He doesn’t seem to understand the concept.

.

Cats are clever creatures. So can someone please explain why Lord Dudley Mountcatten doesn’t get on board with walkies?

.

.

He’s wise to the notion that the appearance of the harness means he gets to go outside….

.

.

But once there?

.

.

Walking is not high on the agenda.

.

.

We have a vast yard for his Lordship to explore with numerous flying and scurrying creatures to meet… but no.

.

.

If we get 20 steps out of him per outing, we consider it a win.

🥴

.

And we’re (not) walking.

.

Lord Dudley was looking stylish as we headed outside to walk.

.

.

And by walk, of course I mean sit.

.

.

My attempts to get his Lordship up and on his feet were not well received.

.

.

After some futile tugging and a bit of cajoling, I did manage to get the little bugger moving…

.

.

But only as far as the deck, where he immediately plopped down under a chair.

Walking the cat….

It’s a process.

.

If ya can’t beat ’em….

.

And it’s clear from the hundreds of dollars I’ve spent on deterrents… I can’t.

.

.

Yeah, I gave you a chance…. and they ate right through you.

.

.

You might as well join them.

.

.

Or rather feed them your fruit and salad scraps in the hopes they’ll leave your flowers alone.

.

.

Watermelon was a huge hit. They positively inhaled that.

.

.

But honestly, would it kill them to wipe off the scowl off their faces and maybe shoot me a grin now and then? I think it’s the least they could do.
