Once we were back inside, I thought for a moment that I might try putting the harness on Charlene, and then remembered this post below and thought otherwise....
You Can't Teach a Middle-Aged Cat New Tricks

I guess I knew it wasn't going to work, but we've had so much fun taking Wylla out for walks, I thought I would try to harness up Charlene, and see what happened. I had fantasies of Wylla and Charlene walking side by side down the sidewalks of Tacoma wearing matching harness and leash sets.
Years ago, when she was just a teen, I bought a harness for Charlene. We tried putting it on her a few times years ago, but never with success. The harness is adjustable, so after a little tweaking, I was able to make it fit our full-grown Bean. I slipped her into it, and snapped the buckles.
Once it was on, she flopped a very dramatic flop on the living room rug.
After a few minutes, and with some encouragement, I managed to get her on the front porch.
And I attempted to snap on the leash.
Paws were raised.
Once the leash was on, it all became a game.
And our walk went no further than the welcome mat.
