Burton in the wild

Unlike Rupert and Peno, Burton is pretty much fearless. That means we have to take a different approach to yard training with this one...
Doesn't he just look so fetching in his little red harness?
Unlike Rupert, he has no issues with wearing a harness. Getting it on him is easy as pie. It's the leash he's not fond of. He's still pretty sure that if he rolls enough, it will come off.
When that doesn't work, he tries a leap at high speed. Of course all that does is show him the limits of how far he can go.
Eventually he gives up and decides to just enjoy the feeling of grass under his feet.
 And takes advantage of all the new toys the yard provides.
Of course, eventually,  a bug or something will catch his eye and he's sure to vocalize his dismay at the limits of his confinement.
But over all, he seems to enjoy the fresh air.

I've tried harnesses but the cats were always able to roll and wriggle their way out of them. And once a cat became accustomed to the harness, she would complained mightily when not allowed outside. Glad you are more successful than I was - your cats are glad too!
