With the right personality, a cat can walk on a leash. I have even met a therapy cat who goes to nursing homes to provide comfort to the residents! There are a few things to do differently on leash to keep cats safe.
First, use a harness. The last thing we want is our kitty slipping out of her collar and running away – cats don’t come back the same way dogs do when they escape. Second, get your kitty used to the harness over time, just like we do with dogs and their collars. Then, practice. Start small, work your way up to outside.
Cats are independent creatures, so even the earthiest of cats still needs its space and time to explore on his terms.
