Cat walks are a great way to provide exercise and mental stimulation for your pet feline. However, before leaving home, it is important to take some precautions to ensure your cat's safety and well-being during the walk. Here are three important precautions to take when walking with cats:
1. Use a proper leash and harness
Unlike dogs, cats are more difficult to control and can get away easily. That's why it's important to use a cat-specific leash and harness to make sure they don't get loose and run away during the walk. At Pets & Props, we carry a range of comfortable and safe leashes and harnesses designed specifically for cats.
2. Choose your tour location carefully
Cats are territorial animals and can become anxious or aggressive when exposed to new environments or stimuli. Therefore, choose a calm and peaceful place for walks with your cat, away from noise and excessive movement. Start with short walks and gradually increase the length of walks and your cat's exposure to new stimuli.
3. Keep your cat protected from the sun and heat
Cats are susceptible to heat stroke and other heat-related health issues. That's why it's important to avoid walking during the hottest days of the year, especially during peak hours of the sun. If the walk is unavoidable, make sure you keep your cat hydrated and protected from the sun, using a hat or umbrella.
In short, cat walks are a great way to provide stimulation and exercise for your pet feline. However, it is important to take some precautions to ensure your cat's safety and well-being during the walk.
