The second day of our road trip, we introduced Callie to the art of walking on the leash and harness. It is one thing to walk a dog, but it’s a totally different experience with a cat. At first you need to allow them to get use to the confines of a halter. Once they stop dropping and folding up into the fetal position, they actually ignore the harness and can be followed with the leash kept loose. It didn’t take long for Callie to realize that the fun and excitement of new experiences could be made all the more pleasurable by feeling safe and protected. When Callie is concerned about her safety, she looks up at me and, if I am calm and curious, so is she… Now Callie enjoys up to a 3 mile hike.
