I've used a pet stroller for quite a few years now, and my cats love it. They miss their "walkies" when the weather turns too cool here, which pretty much means that it's only warm enough (at least room temp 72F) from May to October. If she's nervous about the "outside" because of some scary experiences, a pet stroller would give her a feeling of safety knowing that any dogs couldn't get at her. If you get a stroller, just do short walks at first on quiet streets (or a park or cemetary) without a lot of traffic, as motorcycles, noisy trucks, etc. most cats won't like. If you walk the same route for a while, the cat gets the feeling of patrolling a territory which it would do if it were feral. Mine really enjoy the sights and sounds of wildlife---squirrels, birds, and the different scents in the air and the sun. It gives them a break from their usual routine, and they look forward to the rides to extent that they hop in the stroller and meow to be taken outside. Right now, they're a bit frustrated because they can hear robins and redwing blackbirds singing, and they know it's time for them to go outside again, but our temps are still not warm enough yet.
