Pet Strollers?

I'm always thinking how much MowMow would love to get out of the apartment.

I'm also always using the excuse of not wanting to walk alone to stay in the apartment.

Anyone use these for your cats? Do they freak out when you take them out? I'd love to be able to take him to the park for walks this summer while keeping him safe and not fighting the harness.

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.

We use harnesses but I'm considering getting one too so we can go on actual walks.

catloverami: Where did you get your pet stroller? I've been looking for one big enough for my two girls, but can't find one. Hypothetically, I could order from Amazon, but whenever I try to order anything bigger than a book, I'm told "Sorry, we don't ship to your area" (being the Toronto area). I can find a stroller large enough for one cat in my local pet store, but nothing big enough for two. In any event, I know you're in Ontario, so I'd be interested in hearing where you bought yours.
