Scar is fairly hard on his lead...he snapped his first one a few times, and the one he had now was showing some signs of weakening, so I decided to replace it yesterday before it broke and I had to go out searching for him (which he's managed to get loose in one form or another 7 or 8 times...and he's pretty good at hiding). The photo shows how his old lead was getting rust spots inside the plastic coating...that is where it weakens and he ends up snapping it going after something, usually another cat. So of course, I assumed the problem was taken care of. Until I went out yesterday evening to call him in...and there at the end of the brand new lead was nothing but an empty collar. I got lucky...he hadn't gone very far and when I hollered for him, he answered from the side of the house and came walking around the corner to me. Brat. I guess I'm gonna need to invest in a different style of collar that he can't work loose and slip over his head.

I never allowed my dog out of the house. Sometimes I let him in but this morning was a disaster as he poop and pee all over the living room. He got out twice though and one time he got hit by a tricycle but he didn't get injured and run.

I was so worried you lost him. I am glad you found him! i don't let Onyx out, Though twice he escaped out the door and i caught him on the porch, Now i do not open the door without him in his bedroom with the door closed. I feel bad, but i close him in his room as i don't want him escaping. He is my life, and i am petrified of losing him

Thank heavens, Scar hadn't gone out of the yard! One time our cat came up missing, for a week. My son was crying and he felt so bad about it. Then, she walked up to our side door and begged to get in! It never happened again, so we believe that Mindy had been shut in somewhere. We had her for 18 years
