    How to train your cat to walk on a leash?

    Articlegeneral cat adviceWednesday 31 August 2011

    Cats are said to be the masters of their owners and therefore it is not quite common to see a cat being in a leash. Their sense of dignity causes them to seem to hate the leash. Most of the cats use to stay indoors and take naps and go out during the night on their own. Reasons are also sparse as to why we have to leash a cat in the first place – cats do not bite! 

    However, if for some reasons you would like to walk your cat on a leash, you should remember that before training your cat you should understand the reasons you do so. Owning a city apartment and having a busy road in the neighbourhood is a good reason to get your cat on a leash. You should choose the appropriate type of leash as cat’s neck is very sensitive. You should keep your cat short for easy pickup in case of emergency. Once you get the appropriate leash for your pet you should get your cat accustomed to it. It would be a good idea to introduce it as soon as possible to your cat in order to get it used to it easier.

    Remember that treats are good for everything. Cats do things if they can get something out of it. Offering your kitty a treat might be a perfect reward for wearing the leash.
