How To Take Your KittyFor A Stroll (Yes You Can!)

I saw something the other month that I'd never seen before. At first I thought it was strange, but the more I thought about it, the more sense it made. I'm talking about cat pet strollers.

Have you ever seen one of these? They're becoming more popular, but I live in a small town, and I'd never seen one before in my life. Like I said, at first I wondered why in the world anyone would want a stroller for their cat. But as I kept thinking about it, it made more and more sense. And now, I've also the proud owner of a pet stroller.

Cat pet strollers may seem like an extravagant luxury, but they're not. You're probably thinking, oh, come on, who ever takes their cat out for a walk? But that's the whole point.

Cats and dogs are different, and dogs love being out with their master, even on a leash, and are happy to follow along, or take the lead as the case may be. They would walk all day with you if they had the energy. But cats? Not so much.

You'd be dragging Fluffy along, and she wouldn't like it one bit. And pretty soon, you'd have one very unhappy kitty on your hands. But with cat pet strollers, your furry friend doesn't have to walk to accompany you.

That's the beauty of these strollers. Now you can take your cat along on your walks (or even jogs), and enjoy her company, get her some fresh air, without having to force her to walk on a leash. Which is pretty much not going to work, anyway.

And they're not just for walks. They're great for visits to the vet, and for traveling in general. In fact, once you get one of these cat pet strollers for you own cat, you'll find yourself wondering how you ever got along without it.
