Cat on A Leash

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been tempted to try walking my cat Ebony on a leash. He's an indoor cat but it seems a shame to never let him outside. He's also a very calm, middle-aged cat. So I bought a harness for a small dog and a leash. I was expecting this to be difficult but Ebony didn't seem to notice the harness at all. So I snapped the leash on and walked around the house a bit, then we ventured out to the garden. Ebony was very wide-eyed and checked out everything and I just followed him around. We sat for a while under a tree to watch the birds and then we went over to a warm stone and Ebony stretched out across it and we sat that way for a while and then went in for a tuna treat. This was too easy!!!

BTW, Ebony's diabetes urine test came back negative! Perhaps the high blood glucose reading was due to fear from the car ride? I will test him again just to be sure and keep monitoring for diabetic symptoms.

Regina, sounds like you & Ebony enjoyed your walk outside. Glad it went so well for you, Also that the diabetes situation seems better.

Continued good luck with the walks.

Ebony is one good kitty to walk so nicely for you! I could never get any of mine to cooperate. Your walk sounded like it was lovely - and then ending with a tuna treat......WOW - is she begging to go again?

I take all of my cats (5) out on a leash. They only go in a fenced back yard. They become a mighty hunter - stalking bugs in the grass. My biggest boy, Excalibur, like to lie in the catnip bush. He is white & orange, but his chin turns green from sucking on cat nip. It is very cute.
