Walking your cat on a leash provides mental stimulation, exercise, and a chance for your indoor cat to experience the outdoors in a controlled environment.
Gradually introduce your cat to the leash and harness indoors, allowing them to become comfortable wearing them before venturing outside.
Opt for a secure and comfortable harness specifically designed for cats. Use a lightweight, retractable leash to give your cat some freedom of movement.
Start with short and positive training sessions, rewarding your cat with treats and praise for walking beside you
Walk your cat in quiet, low-traffic areas away from dogs, busy roads, and potential hazards
Observe your cat's body language during walks and be attentive to signs of stress or discomfort
Keep your cat at a safe distance from unfamiliar dogs or wildlife and be prepared to intervene if necessary.
