I've used a pet stroller for past two years, and my 2 cats love it. Our house is adjacent to a park used by dogwalkers (often off leash), has 2 baseball diamonds and children's playground and a lawn bowling and tennis court. At the beginning of the season (still cool here) they like to go when it's fairly quiet in the afternoon, but as the season goes on they find the activities interesting. Sometimes for variety I go around blocks on the sidewalk. They usually jump in the stroller when I say "who wants to go for walkies?". But I have to go when it's fairly warm 72F or more, as my Devons don't have a thick coat to keep them warm. The only thing I would suggest is to get one with larger wheels...mine are only 5in. diameter and really don't handle lumpy grass that well. Am considering selling this one and getting a larger wheeled one. It a good way to get a walk in for yourself, and keep your cat(s) stimulated and safe. They might freak out if you go to a noisy place that's busy with traffic and a lot of people when they aren't used to that. If there's a park or large cemetery nearby, that would be good place to start.
