It took him a minute longer to think about it this second time, but Panther did come to me and make it easy for me again. He was just as sweet and friendly as before, but when I placed the carrier in front of him for the ride down, this time he balked. He wasn't afraid of the carrier. It just appeared that he remembered having an unpleasant time in there the last time even though it ultimately ended with his rescue and freedom on the ground. Nope. Panther did not want to go into the carrier again.
