    Cat Stroller - fun or crazy cat lady?

    I've been thinking Cali and/or Diego might enjoy going outside in a cat stroller. The few people I've mentioned this to have told me absolutely NO!!! I'll look like the crazy cat lady, the cat's won't like it, etc. So thought I'd pose the idea here and see what everyone thinks.

    I think people might be curious about it, but if they don't like a harness or leash and harness, a stroller might be a fun thing! And you might meet more neighbors that way!

    Oh! Are we supposed to care what the neighbors think?


    Bobcat and I get laughs and stares, but who cares? Here's a photo from last winter. It is really helping Bobcat with his balance and coordination -- not to mention exercise.

    I see nothing wrong with it! If the cats enjoy it and you enjoy it, go for it! People think I am crazy because I take Buddy (cat) on a leash. What do I care? I am making myself and Buddy happy.

    Some cats, like my Sparkle, are very outgoing and enjoy strollers. Other cats are more 'shy,' and would be nervous.

    Warning: I suggest either make certain the stroller is totally closed in, OR keep harness and leash on kitty, with leash in your hand.

    Many of my cats are indoor only and the whole idea of being outdoors would spook them.
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    I think Cali might really enjoy it, Diego not so much. But it gets so HOT in our condo that I thought it might be nice to get them out in the breeze. I've tried harnesses and leashes on the deck, but to no avail, they both lie there like they're dead until I take the harness off. No harness they're both more than game to go on the balcony, but it's not safe that way.
