Many of us like keeping our kitties indoors in an effort to protect them and keep them safe and healthy for many years to come. We mustn't forget, however, that cats love and crave the outdoors just like us! They need to be active, explore the surroundings and enjoy the fresh air just as much as we do. Because it can be unsafe to let them roam freely in the city, your solution could be to take them for a little stroll on a leash instead! Many people find it quite challenging to train their cats for walks on a leash, but with a little bit of patience and consistency, we promise you that it is totally doable! After all, why should dogs have all the fun? To help you get started on the journey, here are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to cat walking.
One of the most remarkable feline characteristics must be their notorious independence. Cats know what they want, when they want it and how to get it. And we admire them for this! Their canine rivals, on the other side, enjoy a much better reputation in regard to their trainability. They show off with lots of pawesome tricks and are often trained for high profile jobs too, such as looking for illegal goods or helping impaired people. Does this mean that your cat can’t learn just as many cool tricks as the dog next door though? Not at all!
