Every now and again, a reader writes me to tell me that they are taking their cats for walks and loving it. Also, every now and again, a reader writes me asking if I have recommendations for leashes and harnesses because they would like to start to take their kitties for walks outside.
I do not take mine for walks. When they were 1 or 2 years old, we got some leashes and harnesses to try on them and Charlie was paralyzed from it being around him and wouldn’t move. The more I thought about it, the more I didn’t really want to do it – as I didn’t want his paws on street, etc. So it didn’t work out for us. But, I would like to hear your experiences and be able to share with readers looking to do it where they can start.
Below is a video that one of our readers posted on our Facebook page the other day of her two Ragdoll cats going for a walk.
Do you walk your kitties on a leash? If so, what leash and harness do you use? In other words, what brand and why? Do you like it?
