I Was Just Wondering: Oh, the embarrassment

Finn the Griffon needed a new harness and he was mortified when the only ones that would fit his furry little frame were for cats
Finn the Griffon is a bit embarrassed by the fact that, because he is so petite, dog harnesses don’t fit him and he has to wear one made for cats.

I wear a harness and I have been harbouring a family secret about it. 

My mom was shopping for a harness for me and ran into some difficulty finding and choosing the proper one. There are many colours and styles to choose from. 

What I really mean is that there are way too many colours and styles to choose from! 

I tried on so many of them, and it did not take long before this activity was no fun at all. 

Due to my size, the doggy harnesses did not fit well, and they also had huge buckles on them. 

I was stunned when Mom decided to take me to the cat area for harnesses. I started to shake. What would people think?

My mom forced me to try on a cat harness. I thought I would die. To my surprise, the cat harness fit perfectly (or ‘purrfectly’, if you will)  and was very comfortable. And no huge buckles! 

So, I was just wondering, should I keep this family secret, or not care what others think?
