Well, the kitten was wearing a flea collar, but all I had in the car was a 50 ft. length of 7/16 PMI. I tied a bowline (and backed it up with a half-hitch out of habit) around the kitten's collar and with the cat now properly on a leash, marched on into the vet's waiting room. People looked at me kinda funny.
LOL thanks to whoever bumped this old thread!
Have gained too much weight since my caving days to fit in any of my old harnesses but my daughter worked in construction for several years before becoming a truck driver. Her modern 'safety harness' is amongst the two pickup trucks worth of tools and stuff that is now in her old bed room
Yes, I have used it several times working on the roof of our house. Still have two thirty plus year old ropes which are quite handy taking down trees. Would never dream of hanging on something that old but will tie it to the trailer hitch of a truck in a heart beat. Odd how that works...
