Then walking your cat is bound to be fun! In addition, joint walks strengthen the bond between pets and their parent. Walking your cat has many benefits, but how do you go about it? Read on and discover the possibilities for your kitten or cat.
Cat and kitten collars for on the road
A cat collar is great for cats that like to be out on their own. But they’re also perfect for cats that are used to walking on a leash. If your kitten or cat isn’t used to leash-walking, a collar is less useful. In case of unexpected movements, collars aren’t a great choice for cats. In this case, it’s better to go for a good cat or kitten harness. In our cat shop you’ll find a wide range of cat collars: a cat collar with a bell, adjustable cat collars and of course cat collars in all kinds of colours. There’s something for each single cat!
A comfortable harness for cats and kittens
For kittens and cats that aren’t used to leash-walking, it’s better to go for a good cat or kitten harness. A cat harness evenly distributes pressure across the cat's body and prevents your pet from getting out of the harness in case of unexpected movements during the walk. Choose a cat harness that fits snugly around your cat’s body or an adjustable harness for a comfortable fit. In our range you’ll also find a cat harness with a leash. This way you’re immediately ready to go for a walk!
Flexi cat leash for more control when walking your cat
In addition to a good cat harness or collar you’ll also need a leash for your cat. A leash ensures that you remain in control of your cat or kitten, so that she doesn’t escape or run away during a walk. In our range you’ll find Flexi cat leashes, these are very handy and practical in use. The leashes are retractable, which is very handy when your cat starts to explore things while walking. In addition, the Flexi lines offer a lot of grip and are comfortable to hold, not unimportant either!
Cat safety collars
Does your pet like to go out on its own? Then make sure that your feline friend is safe. Especially in the dark, it’s important that your cat stands out in traffic. Don't let your cat go outside during dark days without a luminous collar or cat collar with reflective stripes. Our cat collars with light are perfect for a nice evening walk in the dark. They can be cut to size, are rechargeable and with a visibility of up to 500 metres, your cat will always be highly visible! This way you can be sure that your cat is safe on the road, even in the dark.
Address tubes and collar tags for cats
Speaking of safety: the address tube for cat collars! Most cats are able to find their way back home just fine. However, something can always happen on the way. It’s nice when you can be sure that your cat will come home or can be brought home. Then an address tube is the perfect solution. Put a note in the tube with your address and contact details so your cat can always return home safely.
Leash-walking your cat
Do you want your cat to enjoy the fresh air, but don't you feel like going for a walk? Or would you like to go out yourself, but your cat is less enthusiastic? Then take a look at our tie out leashes for cats. These cat leashes can be used in the garden or on the balcony, giving your cat the freedom to roam around in the fresh air.
How to get your cat to go on a walk with you?
Walking your cat requires some preparation. First of all, it’s important to buy the right walking equipment, as we’ve already mentioned above. It’s also very important to get your cat used to a cat collar or harness. It’s best to do this indoors in a familiar environment.
