Lack of movement is harmful not only to the human body but also to the health of little cats. Cats that raised only indoors often become obese because they do not get enough exercise. Eveen, if they are happy and play, they do not exert as much physical effort as cats that left free outside.
But you can make up for it by taking your cat for a walk in the park. In today’s article, you will find The recipe for a successful catwalk.
Buy a suitable leash
The recipe for a successful catwalk starts with buying. The cat can frightened by noises and strangers when it goes for a walk. She may run away from you. Or hide under a car. Or climb between a tree. That’s why it’s good to keep it on a leash.
But be careful, because it recommended buying a special leash, “harness” type. Those that tie only around the neck can injure the cat or cause it to suffocate when it tries to “escape.”

Get her used to the leash!
Cats can used to take on a leash. Of course, don’t expect your cat to behave like a dog and walk. Respond to all sorts of commands. With a little patience and perseverance, however, you will be able to make her accept the leash
Also, be sure that cats will never walk alert. They will prefer to explore everything that moves around them. Let the cat do this as much as possible. Praise her and give her small rewards when she likes you.
The more often you take her for a walk, the more she will get used to this routine and enjoy it more.
Another rule when you decide to go for a walk with her is to not forget to adjust the harness so that it fits her chest. It should be neither too tight on the body, nor too wide.
On the first day, let her wear the harness for an hour. In the following days, it increases the time interval.
Behave with the cat naturally, without giving much importance to the harness. When you see that he has become accustomed to the legal harness with a leash. Then gently pull the leash so that he realizes what commands you will give him. If you pull it slightly forwards, it will take a few steps. If you gently pull her back as she walks, then she will understand that she needs to stop.
As the last recommendation, let her investigate whatever she wants. But beware of uncovered gutters or potholes or cracks where you could not reach it if needed.

Choose quiet places
Or, simply, to overwhelmed by fear and want to retire.
To get your cat to walk with you, lure her with little cat delights. Or even food (unless I’ve only eaten two hours before).The cat also walks in grassy or wooded areas. Such territories become extremely interesting for her, contrary to the idea that she would like paved alleys.
Let the cat climb the tree trunks.
She will train his muscles and at the same time, he will sharpen his claws. Remember that if you want to take it down from the tree, all you have to do is pull the leash down slightly.
Watch out for the dogs!
Regardless of whether your cat gets along well with other animals, it is good to avoid confronting a dog as much as possible during the walk. You never know how either one will react. Also, avoid special fenced places for puppies. Eveen, if there are no quadrupeds in the area.
Once in this area, the cat will feel the specific smell left by the dogs and may react aggressively.
Don’t leave her unattended!
When you go for a walk, don’t forget to watch your cat when you let him go on a leash and let him go free. A barking dog, a car or a person passing through the area can scare her and she will react accordingly.
Also, never leave the cat unattended, tied to a tree or a bench, like a dog. It will become vulnerable to attack by other animals in the area. It can happen that you turn around and find it suspended from the tree or with a leash tangled around it.
But if you follow all these recommendations, walking in the park will be a real pleasure for both you and your kitten.
For your cat not to become obese, it is advisable to take her for a walk in the park. But not anyway. The cat is not a dog. He will have different reactions from it. You will take a harness to accustom her to. Once he got used to it, he tied a leash to the harness.
On the first day, walk with her through the park for an hour. In the following days, you can gradually increase your walking time.
Following the recommendations in this article, you will have a successful walk with your cat. You will both be happy. You just have to be patient and persevere.
