Taking the Cat for a Drag

When we were first married, we got our first cat. Being book people, we read a book about training cats that told us how easy it was to train a cat to go for a walk on a leash.

We tried it. We tried it several times. We tried it with several different cats. We never found a cat who could be trained to go for a walk on a leash. The Qatteri Cat scratched me bloody when I just tried to put on the harness. I never even got the leash attached. I still have the harness. I still have the leash – never been used.

We called it “Taking the Cat for a Drag.” It looks a lot like this:

  2. Big Pearls – don’t feel sorry – they are SO manipulative. They are drama queens! They just don’t like being told what to do. And they have a way of getting what they want.

  5. bbq8 – Yes! A lot like children, except that children can be trained!

    OK, Ms. Baker, with all your cats, did YOU ever get a cat to walk on a leash?

  7. We had a cat when I was a kid that would only go outside on a leash-he was afraid otherwise.

  8. Lofter – You’re welcome! Cats are SO funny!

    No kidding, Momcat? And he would walk with you, like a dog? Did he sniff around or just walk?
