How To Take Your Cat For A Walk

Do you dream of long walks on the beach with your furry feline? Well, keep on dreaming. You can, however, take your cat for a stroll around your front yard. Correction. Your cat may take YOU for a stroll around your front yard. So, how DO you take your cat for a walk?

(1) Walking 101: Dress your cat for the special occasion by adorning cat in a well fitting harness. Do this BEFORE you even think of setting foot and paw outside of your home (cat palace). Note: well fitting is of utmost importance if you ever want to see your kitty again. We all know that cats are notorious escape artists. This is an area of no exception.

(2) With a firm hold on the leash, open the door. Or if you aren’t up for a mad dash, or conversely, your cat playing dead and getting squashed by the door, pick up said cat and open the door. Sampson actually walks out with relative dignity.

(3) Begin your walk into the great unknown. This walk may take many forms. If your cat was freshly bathed such as Sampson, you may experience rebuttal rolling. He likes to be one with nature and dress for the occasion.

(4) Let your cat take the lead. Be sure not to pull too hard on the leash, or you will surely hear about it.

(5) Be patient, soon you will get into the walking groove.

(6) But sometimes, you will need to stop and take a break.

(7) Watch out for leash paralysis which renders kitty useless. It may occur at any time, without warning.

(8) But soon enough, you’ll be back in business.

(9) Don’t be discouraged by stupid human looks. These are built into feline DNA and are unpreventable.

(10) Take time to smell the roses . . . or weeds, or grass, or dog poo. And most of all, enjoy your time with your cat!
