I've joined a Yahoo! group oriented around Savannah cats, mainly to get people's opinions if Luckie is one and, if she is, to ask questions and so on. So far opinions are divided, but this morning she exhibited a charming characteric of the breed: she seems like she'll be very easily leash-trained. I'd like to be able to take out from time to time on short excursions, like on quiet Sundays. Anyway, I got a collar and leash Wednesday and have done some work in the living room, tricking her into walking on the leash mainly by danging a toy in front of her. Well, today I simply hooked her up and had her come with me to get the newspaper. She took a while to get to the elevator with me, flopping down like a petulant kid a few times, but she did make it all the way there without me carrying her. In the lobby she was still struggling. When I got back to my floor again, however, she walked on the leash just like a dog, no hesitation at all. Perhaps it was because she knew she was going towards home, but still... cool!
