Cats and leashes

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Life is safer when a cat lives indoors but you may want to take him on a walk sometimes. You can train your cat to walk on a leash. Use a harness instead of a collar and get a leash that’s four to six feet long. Begin by getting your cat used to the harness. If he resists, leave it around where he can smell it for a few days. When you feel that he’s ready, let him drag the leash around but keep an eye on him. Now, hold the leash and follow him for short indoor walks. Eventually, try taking him outside. Always praise him and give him a treat when he walks where you want him to. Never pull.  If your cat won’t go where you want, pick him up a carry him to the spot.

Remember, your pets count!
