McDonald's pit stop
The lanyard I spent so much time making out of the twine that print journalism newspapers use to tie together their delivery issues has come in handy. The local pet shop only had a harness for the kitten and I didn’t want to go with a dog leash, because I already got one of those, and I didn’t have time to drive out to Petco. I affixed a clip to one end and the lanyard seems strong enough to keep the cat from getting away.
I just know in its heart she would like nothing better than make life difficult for me getting her back in the car. She seems spooked and I don’t know whether it’s because she doesn’t like the leash, or maybe she’s a bit traumatized of the outdoors when she was lingering by the side of the freeway entrance when she was found.
