Do Cats Walk on a Leash?
You may not see it very often, but some cats actually do very well walking on a leash. Not all cats will allow you to place a harness on them and take them for walks. But, the cats that do are the cats that genuinely love to go for walks. If you’re looking to adopt or purchase a cat that you can take on outings with you and walk on a leash, look for cat breeds that are easy to train and that enjoy learning. Some of the top recommended breeds for leash training include the Abyssinian, American Shorthair, Bengal, Japanese Bobtail, Maine Coon, Ocicat, Siamese, and Somali. Other breeds may not be known for leash walking, but you never know if an individual cat will take to it or not. You can always try. Talk with your Bell Animal and Bird Hospital veterinarian North Phoenix, AZ before adopting as he may be able to help you choose the best one for your lifestyle.
