Exercise and mental stimulation are important for your cat's emotional and physical well-being. A tired cat is a happy cat, one who is less likely to engage in destructive behaviors like shredding the furniture.
Providing your cat with the physical exercise and mental stimulation he needs can be a challenge, though. Many pet owners turn their cats loose outside to explore. But this isn't a safe solution; your cat can be hit by a car, attacked by a predator or just lost forever.
If your cat is social, relaxed and outgoing, one of the safest ways to allow him to experience the outdoors is to teach him to walk on leash. It's true: Cats actually can learn to walk on leash! Watch the video to find out if your cat is a good candidate for leash walking and how to train him to heel nicely at your side.
