It's true - cats can enjoy their walks as much as dogs!
Cat collars: essential for both indoor and outdoor cats
Even if you have an indoor cat, a collar is a sound investment that may save you a lot of stress in the long-run - especially if you have a family member or neighbour who opens the front door without thought, and kitty bolts for the horizon! Having a cat collar with an identification tag attached will help people recognise your cat, and bring them home.
We also carry collars for kittens, who need a much smaller and thinner design to keep them comfortable. Both Rogz and Little Petface design and make collars that are especially for kittens, and will get them used to wearing a collar from a very young age.
How to train your cat to walk on a leash
Not all cats will enjoy being put on a leash or in a harness to go for a walk - but for the curious feline, a walk on a leash is a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors safely. We definitely recommend a harness when it comes to training your cat to walk on a lead, as a collar can be a tad dangerous if your cat makes a run for the hills - and collars are of course far easier to manoeuvre out of than a harness.
Once you've chosen a harness, you'll need to get your cat used to using it. After that, we recommend baby steps when it comes to exploring the great outdoors. Some cats may take a long while to even make it onto the street, while others may be ready for a grand adventure much sooner.
Cat ID tags and more
Whether you're taking your cat for a walk, they dwell outside, or (as mentioned before) your indoor cat manages to escape, an ID tag can be a life-saver. You can even order a completely customised tag from Rogz, so you can find the tag that best suits your cat's personality.
