Some cats like to be taken on walks, but others do not. If you want to take your cat on walks, you will need to get a cat harness and leash and train your cat to walk with them. Start slowly and follow training guidelines from a respected cat trainer or feline behavioral expert.
Some cats don't mind collars and harnesses, while others need to become acclimated to wearing them. Introduce any new collar or harness slowly and be sure to provide praise, play and treats as a reward for good behavior. With a little time and patience, most cats adapt very well to collars, and many can get used to wearing harnesses, too.
You should walk your cat using a harness. Never attach a leash to your cat's collar, as most cat collars are designed to break away for safety when pulled. Using a dog collar for walks is not recommended either, as cats can injure themselves if they try to pull during walks. Use only cat harnesses and leashes that are appropriately sized for your kitty and be sure to fasten them securely before each walk.
Leash train your cat by gradually getting her accustomed to the cat harness and leash and walking her around indoors, at first. Be sure to go slowly and provide lots of praise for good behavior, offering treats, pets and play as a reward. Once your cat has gotten used to indoor leash walking, try walking outside for a short period in a safe and secure area. If your cat takes to the training well and you feel confident that she can handle it, you can try taking her for walks in more public venues after a while.
