Cat. To keep a house you can’t walk
To keep a house you cannot walk is a rather complex punctuation task for cat owners. So whether you want to let your cat out? The question is moot. Each owner needs to decide for itself, taking into account features and wishes of their furry pet. The portal Womie gives you the opportunity to look at this problem from different sides and to place punctuation marks in the relationship with your pet.
To keep the house. You can’t walk
The main problem with outdoor cats is their independence. It is unlikely that they, like dogs, will walk at a certain time and in a certain place. You should not still forget about the fact that cats walk by themselves and look after them will not always.
Yes, and it should be understood that the cat is the cat of discord, and throw domestic cat in the “yard life” is unlikely to be a good idea. The walk should enhance the vitality of the animal, not a marathon for survival. Unattended pet cat could get hurt, eat something or fall victim to other animals and even humans.
Besides, this leaves open the question of parasites, particularly ticks and fleas. Ticks are carriers of dangerous diseases such as piroplasmosis, so before you walk you must handle the animal hair special means against parasites, and after a walk you need to carefully inspect the cat for ticks.
If you want to make your pet breathe fresh air, but didn’t get into trouble, the promenade on the balcony — a perfectly valid option.
To keep the house. To walk
Cats are curious by nature creation. And the walk to them is a great way to keep fit and in a good mood. If you decided that your cat must go out, then start to teach her to do from an early age to walk is not for the animal became a source of stress.
Many owners let the cats to walk alone or “walk” their Pets, carrying them in her arms. In the first case the owners heart is not in place, and the second cat gets the necessary physical activity. Now very popular leashes for cats. They, on the one hand, give you the opportunity not to lose sight of your pet, and on the other hand, provide, albeit limited, but still freedom of movement.
Things to remember when choosing walks with leash:
- do not use a collar and leash (neck cats have a weak spot);
- use harnesses, which are attached on the body of the cat;
- accustom the cat to the leash at home first (even if it is in a relaxed atmosphere to get acquainted with an unknown object, it is possible for a few days to put the leash near the resting place of your pet);
- do not walk too long (your cat can get used to the street and then constantly to break).
For the first outing you need to choose a quiet, secluded place, where neither people nor dogs nor machines will not scare your pet. To the place of walking in this case, the cat is better to carry to carry any arms, but already wearing a leash.
Arriving at the place, drop the animal on the ground and give him time to look around and get used to the new scenery. In any case, don’t rush the cat and pull her back forcefully — this will only cause your pet’s fear of walking.
I’ll let her decide when and where to go. And remember: in fact, you don’t walk the cat, and the cat walks you.
Any relationship must be built on trust and understanding. Relationship with your cat is no exception. Listen to the needs of your pet, be careful in dealing with a cat, no matter on the street or at home, will bring you only joy.
