Have you every walked your cat? While cats are not walked as often as dogs, it can be done! Walking your cat can provide a safe outdoor experience, and give you a new opportunity to spend quality time with your pet. Courtesy of The Daily Cat, here are some tips for walking your cat:
- Use a light harness and leash designed for cats
- Allow your cat to get used to the leash and harness by leaving it near favourite sleeping or playing spots for a while
- When you try the harness on your cat, reward good behaviour with a treat and take the harness off as soon as your cat seems uncomfortable. It will take some time for your cat to get used to this new clothing!
- Take your cat on some indoor walks before venturing outdoors
