Do You Walk Your Cat(s)?

We bought the cats one collar from Petco for them to share so we can walk them on a leash. I tried it on Sunny and she loved it. We made sure it's not breakaway because then you risk the cat all of the sudden pulling and the collar breaks. But, as long as it's non-breakaway and you have a good hold on the leash, you're fine.

But, do you walk your cat(s)? Do they like it?

I try and I use a harness but Kiddles does not like it. Its more like a carring instead of walking. This is the only way I try to let her out because she likes to go outside but with the flea situation its kind of hard now taking her out.


Off topic but who is Nate Roberson? Saw him in your avatar and siggy.

We got one of the harnesses from metpet.com that looks more like a jacket. We have one cat that will come running if she here you pick it up. She goes out and walks with her head held high, like she is royalty. In the house is she one of the milder cats, but she sure changes when she gets that halter on!

We have tried it with the others, with varying degrees of success.

I don't really want to give my cats a taste of the outside. The last thing I need is them crying to go out. I've heard this can be a major problem once they've ventured beyond the door.

Leazie, do you have the soft or hard harness? I like the looks of metpet jacket-type harness. I like to put a harness on a cat for vet visits, even if in a carrier.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you criticize him, you're a mile away and you have his shoes.

Here's Missy out in her front lawn. We have a purple XL for the "hefty" cats, and a red L for the "normal" cats.

No, don't think they'd be interested in being taken for a walk... but they have said
they wouldn't mind a fully stocked stretch limo to chauffeur them around ... LOL

either Trixie or Cheddar will take me for a walk if we go out. Sadie is not so keen on being outdoors, unless its on a balcony.
I wish I had a place now where I could take them outside, since they really enjoy it.

Meagan,
I would suggest you buy a harness for taking your kitties outside. Collars aren't usually a good idea because they can either slip out of them or hurt themselves if they were to get startled and bolt.

We got dusty one of those harnesses from metpet.com also. They are very nice go on easy and she cant get loose. Also we can cinch it up a bit tighter and it doesnt cut into her like a string harness or a collar if she jumps at a bug or frog... I was just about to post a few pictures when I saw this thread so ill toss them in here too.

My wife took her out today so I had to go snap some shots. Shes well behaved on the leash also.

Wow - great pictures! Of course, having a beautiful cat doesn't hurt.
