Max on far side of neighbor's yard, which is within his majesty's claimed territory. He didn't know we were spying on him

He does NOT look impressed.
I literally just loaded this, saw the photo, and said the exact same thing to myself.
Then scrolled down and saw your post.

Laughing so hard I hurt something!

I think it is the combo of the witch's hat and Superman costume... he is saying "Dude! WTF?!!? Pick ONE!"

I'm flashing back to how much my cats hated having a harness put on them... All four have gone through this at one point in their lives due to injury that has required them being locked down.
Of course, having 4 feral born in/out cats and trying to lock one down is stupidly insane.
But then putting a harness on one and teaching it to respect the leash? Oh Helz No! ;)

:)

And I never bled once.

(More like 5 or 9 times per cat we've had to do this to.)

:p

Our last cat was free-roaming from birth. Our current cat is harnessed only outside for 1/2 hour daily. At first, it was like battling a demon to get the harness on. After a few weeks, he is beginning to accept it and has figured the harness means it's time to go out.

LOL

Our more "sophisticated" friend, Iggy, figured this out quite quickly. To the extent that he remembered the harness later and thought I was going to put it on him and take him out for a hang-out.
He was very disappointed to learn it was for one of his siblings.
Iggy was very content going out and just chilling.
The others are like, "lets go for a drag."

The littlest, our teeny ninja, when she had a bum wheel... I would take her out and she would happily walk away from the house... but never back. I would have to pick her up, and the way back was filled with claws dug in and persistent feline growling.

I bought one of those insta-lock leashes that also auto retracts. This has been a savior as they all have tried to make a break for it at least once.
The worst was Iggy luring me near enough to a tree that he got a good 4' up it before I could react. That bastard has some claw strength! Had to scruff him to get him down.

;)

He helped me determine the rules for everyone else.
No Fences.
No Trees.
And you don't get field access until you show me you can behave.

Now the funniest part that I can share...
Bathroom habits.
While younger, our cats would use the litter box, but that has stopped but for all of the worst emergencies.
So how do you walk a cat so it will "do its thing?" ;)

Iggy likes Gopher mounds. Which is hilarious. I walked him past one early in his leashing, wishing I could get him to go potty, and he jumped right on that thing, scratched it open, dropped a deuce, covered it and was so pleased with himself!

The others were much trickier.
