    Default For those who own indoor cats...

    Do you take your cat for a walk on a lead?

    I was at the park the other day with my kids. A woman was walking her cat on a lead across the road from the park. Now this cat didn't like walking on the lead. It took a step and stopped, but she would keep on walking and pull it along and the cat would stop, then she would pull it again. It looked like the cat didn't want to walk?

    Ehh.. No. But I do know some cats can be trained to do this. Some cats enjoy it.

    I think it's the fact the cat didn't look like it was enjoying the walk, or she wasn't letting it walk on its own time.

    My cat was only on a lead/harness when he was recovering from surgery and we didnt want him taking off, at first he was a bit apprehensive about it but he got used to it. My rabbit however was walked on a lead from when he was young and didnt mind it at all.

    Yes if they don't like it I wouldn't be dragging them on a leash. Poor thing hope it was just a one time thing she was trying out.

    When our cat was indoors we used to take her for a walk on her lead BUT only in our fenced yard where she felt safe. I wouldn't walk a cat through a park.

    Our cat loved her yard walks and used to sit perfectly still when she heard me get the lead out, waiting to be attached. Was really funny.

    Nope.

    I tried this when I was a child with our cat and she hated it so I never tried again. What is the point if the cat hates it?

    We are quite lucky where we live. We have a lovely balcony on the 2nd level so our cat goes out there when she wants. She sits and watches insects on the wall and that's as much entertainment as she wants. She can see through the railing and knows it's up high so she stays put. It's the best of both worlds really.

    We bought a harness and lead, tried to put it on him once, he hated it, he's not had it on since!
