I've tried to put a leash on my cat once and he fought me teeth & claw.
When I finally got him on the leash he chew through it.
Poor Bloody B***ard, eventually got hit by a car and died.

Anyway, nice cart.
I thought of welding one together but I like the idea of PVC.

when little they adjust easy like a dog.....they actually look forward to it and go to the door and wait near their leash.....pretty funny to see

I wouldnt build a metal 4 wheeled bike...I'm sure it would end up way to heavy.....this things light
