Step 1: Use a harness and leash Use a small, H-type harness that fits the cat, and a cotton or nylon leash. A harness fits if you can barely get a finger between the cat and the harness. Step 2: Get the cat used to the harness Get the cat used to the harness by putting it on them without buckling it. Tip Put the harness on the cat during playtime when the cat is more likely to be comfortable. Step 3: Reward the cat Reward your cat with plenty of treats and affection. Petting your cat during your training sessions will help your feline friend associate the harness with positive feelings. Step 4: Buckle one loop Continue putting the harness on the cat each day until the cat ignores it. After that, you can buckle one of the harness's loops for 30 seconds. Step 5: Build up to three loops Build up to buckling the entire harness, one loop at a time. The process can take several months. Once your cat is comfortable with the harness completely buckled, let them walk around while wearing it. Step 6: Add the leash Add the leash when your cat is comfortable with the harness. Let them walk around with the leash for as long as it takes to get used to it. Step 7: Go for practice walks Go for practice walks around the house for a few days. Step 8: Go for the first walk Go for a walk when your cat is used to you holding the leash. Let them lead you on the first few walks. Bring treats along for encouragement. Tip Make sure it is quiet outside when you go for your walk. You don't want your cat to get spooked. Step 9: [Tug the leash lightly] Tug the leash lightly to lead the cat on subsequent walks. Step 10: Be patient Be patient. Teaching a cat to walk on a leash takes time. Take the training process day by day, moving on to each step only when your cat is ready. Did You Know? Only 20% of pet cats are adopted from shelters.

I think my cat will really hate the leash but will like the fact that she's going outside. Whenever my mom leaves the window open since she's cooking my cat sits by the open window and looks outside. However, I don't know what leash to get her...a medium or small?
Halfmoon Fullmoon (13 дней назад)
It's going to be fun training my 7-year-old once-stray cat to walk on a leash (and come to me when I want him to as tugging the lead only causes him to pull harder.)

My cat will start rolling like crazy and wont take the treat unless you take it off
Kayla MacGillivray (1 месяц назад)
My cat loves outside but he is very smart and easily takes off the H harness by rolling on his side and biting it and can get out in seconds, he also runs and is very brave that nearly got himself run Over by a car , I tried other harnesses but he can escape those too, he also is comfortable with them inside and won’t take them off in the house, what should I do
Grace Su (1 месяц назад)
He was freaking trying this climb up to a wall of someone’s backyard with me holding the leash...
Captain Cairo (1 месяц назад)
I did all of that on day one, including the walk. She started associating the harness with going outside by day two, which just goes to show how smart those animals are. It's been 2 weeks and Cookie walks like a pro now. When I take out the harness she gets so excited and runs to wait for me at the door haha.... Didn't even use one single treat, just talking to her in a loving voice and petting her every time she does something right. Especially when we walk at night when it's quiet and there are no cars, it makes her soooo happy. :)

Traveler's Garden (1 месяц назад)
It doesn't take months, only if the training was done really bad. It takes around 1-3 days, max. 1 week for really sensitive cats. (Except the cat is highly people-aggressive/fearful or feral & doesn't even let anyone pet it...) I trained my 2 cats & couple of others from other owners, different ages & character. This video is a bad example for harness-train a cat, no surprise they say it takes months. Stuffing the cat's head into the harness, holding/forcing it, not enough redirection with food, ignoring the cat's body-language of discomfort & still moving forward and they even say to pull on the leash later...overall bad tips. I trained my cats to follow me outside from the first walk, without pulling the leash of course. (calling, treats, way longer leash etc.) The result is, that they follow me even off-leash (in nature) just like well-trained dogs. We go on walks for 9 years & they are off-leash 95% and never walked off.

My cat loves going out side so I’ve been putting the harness on when we are out teaching her that she gets to go outside when her harness is on but she just then lays down....;-; rip
Traveler's Garden (1 месяц назад)
You need to redirect the cat with food. Don't do it like in this video, they are forcing the cat & just stuffing the harness over the head etc. On my channel I have a tutorial how to do it properly.

Remember that it depends on your cat, and some cats just won't go on walks like this. My cat loves walks and learned within a matter of days. My mom's cat was taught the same way and refuses to even wear the harness. Not all cats are the same.

A "house cat" has the same instinct a tiger does, imagine a race of giant humans that keep tigers as indoor tigers forever, or walked them only on a leash never giving them freedom... Very sad what humans do to powerful animals :/

ok. after I wiped the dribble from my face from laughing at all your comments, I'll add mine. buy harness that is a suitable fit. put it on. wait 30 min. take it off. repeat. 2 x/day for 1-5 days depending on you cat. then attach leash and bring your friend out side. each animal is different and where you live is unique. I would NOT try this somewhere with urban traffic or too much noise. I would Only try this on a calm street to get acclimated. Noise will only confuse and distract both you and your pet. Use your intuition. Use your judgement. Be patient. Try for 15 min. for a few days and stay CLOSE (within 40") to home. If after 1-2 weeks your fur friend still won't deal with the leash, get over it. Not all cats are that way and it really depends on them and you and the relationship that exists between the 2. Wishing you all success! Ours was trained from a (stray) young cat that learned to trust on her terms and I trained her from prompts I learned from my mother that learned from her grand mother and her farm cats.

My cat just lies on the ground like something is pinning him down when he has the harness on, I try to stand him up and he just tips over 😂
Traveler's Garden (14 дней назад)
Said Korane+ Not necessarily, as long as 2 fingers fit between cat & harness it's fine. Most cats fall over (or do some kind of avoiding behavior like walking backwards etc.), when getting a harness on, regardless how loose it is.
Said Korane (14 дней назад)
Shione Cooper that means that it's on too tight and probably squeezing the area right below the top side of the neck.
Traveler's Garden (1 месяц назад)
Redirection with food is the key. Don't do it like in this video (they just force the cat, stuff the harness over the head etc.). On my channel is a tutorial how to do it without "needing months" of training...1-3 days, max. a week should be more than enough.
Ava Baumann (1 месяц назад)
Same! I eventually got him to walk a bit but he’s too distracted by everything, flowers, grass, bugs, you name it. One day I put a towel down in the backyard and then I laid down while he played in the grass and went crazy. I eventually gave up and a couple months later I decided to try again. The harness was way to tight on him as he grew so much. He isn’t even one years old yet so I have to get him a new harness. Any update on the progress of your cat?

I have a hairless who loves to go outside, she knows she only gets to go when she wears her collar so as soon as she hears the leash she runs to the door and purrs as i put it on her XD
Hezett314 (1 год назад)
Oh no, this is so way ... laughable I just put stuff on my kitty when she's almost asleep And then I pull the laser. And then the day we go outside I sew a lead to the shirt and put it on her BY THE DOOR, and if she at first says no I push the door open a bit so she knows that's the deal. Also, treats and I always let her lead.

I honestly don't think playtime is the best time to put on the harness. I'd say after playtime when it's tired. The cat will claw and bite you if you do so xD

Depends what constitutes playtime for the individual cat. Some cats get more riled up than others.

Cats arent like dogs if you put a leash on a collar and tug it, it could damage their neck Of course putting just a normal collar without a leash is fine as you're not tugging it but just for identification
Horse Lover Studios (1 месяц назад)
They don’t like it and some cats like my own lost the fur underneath where the collar was my older brothers cat had a straight circle around his neck with no fur
Beck Dunham (2 месяца назад)
If they pull while walking, it can severely damage their windpipe.

How should I decide what cat to harness train? I have a cat wonton who loves people once they pet her a few times but she's kind of slow in the head and just overall weird and can be mean to other animals like dogs and other cats. My other cat's name is Smokey and she's laid back, never seen her hiss at another animal, curious, and we're very close. However, I have took Wonton out for a few times already and Smokey seems to hate the leash.

just let your cat out a few hours a day, explore themself, they know the way home. Dont lock your cat in door, this is very bad

Do cats need to be put in a leash when walking them?
Susy Hernandez (5 месяцев назад)
If u dont mind your cat running away..then no.
Miss.Scales & friends (1 год назад)
+Bailarsonsa that really all depends on the individual cat. Most would rather do their own thing than follow like a dog. It's cool that yours follow, but not all cats will. And most cats will detect dogs and other danger before you do, and WILL spook.
Traveler's Garden (1 год назад)
Miss.Scales & Pets+ In nature cats rarely get spooked, my 2 cats spooked in forest/fields not once in almost 8 years. In the city (even if its a small one), they do spook...so they are on the flexible leash of 8m length. I would only use a leash in the beginning (few weeks maybe), then in nature it´s not necessary at all, if the training is done right. I didn´t loose my cats in all our almost 8 years together. They follow closely and listen when called. If danger comes (unleashed dogs) I take them into my arms and hold them, till the dog is gone or put them into a tree, if there are more than one unleashed dog. If dogs are leashed, strangers, bikers, or horse-riders come, I just call them to me and put a 1m leash on them till the "unknown thing" is gone. In my youtube channel you can see, that cats can be without leash in nature and follow like any dog would.
Miss.Scales & friends (1 год назад)
Yes. Harness and leash always. Then if he gets spooked, you can quickly take him home or to a different area rather than losing him in a strange place.
