Walking a cat on a leash may seem as exotic as, say, strutting around with a python draped around your shoulders—but it’s entirely normal and natural. Sure, many cats might need some extra convincing that you’re not entrapping them, but leash training cats can definitely evolve into a mutually beneficial experience.
A Furry Space Bubble
This probably goes without saying, but it’s a good idea to give Fluffy his or her space when it comes to new ideas. If your feline has always been an apartment-dwelling cat, it’s quite possible that walking down the avenues together is the very last thing on his or her “to-do” list. To be sure, many cats just don’t feel safe or comfortable outside the home. Please don’t force the situation.
