My cat walking diary (1)

       Walking the cat made me see a more healthy and cheerful sauce, and it also made me have more emotional communication and interaction with the catsup. It’s really gratifying. Therefore, I share my experience and lessons in the process of walking cats, hoping to enlighten like-minded cat friends.

       When a good friend told me that he was going out for a cat walk, I was very surprised – what? How about the cat? He said that cats would be more happy to climb trees and stroll around the community garden. At first, I was very curious. Can cats, who never go out, really feel happy when they go out? So I bought a simple chest and back traction rope from the Internet. I was excited to put on my catsup (my cat’s name). In less than a second, I was taken off After several times, I bought a kind of traction rope which is not easy to take off. After wearing it at home, I left the door with my sauce.

       It was a fine afternoon and there were few people in the garden. I held the sauce on the grass. It looked like a timid gesture, looking for shelter everywhere. It looked only afraid, without any sign of happiness (lower body, tail, ears, looking around carefully). I thought it would be good to go out a few more times, but I insisted on it a few times. It was so scared that I decided to let the cat walk.

       It was not until one day that I saw Dr. Dai Genji’s “walking the cat” that I realized how serious a mistake I had made before. It turns out that I used to walk the cat impulsively just to satisfy my curiosity and did not fully consider the cat’s feelings.

       The really beneficial method of walking the cat must be a long-term process that can make the cat have enough time to adapt. It is not a journey that is inspired by the whim of the cat.

       After realizing this, I felt the needs and emotions of the sauce and guided them step by step. Now, marmalade has been out walking the cat for more than 7 months. As soon as it arrives at night, she asks me to go to the door and get ready. After a happy walk, she will go home consciously. She can not only find the right home, but also understand my instructions such as “go home” and “go” and give me a response. It looks like a dog! This is something I didn’t dare to think about!

       It’s really gratifying to see a more physically and mentally healthy and more cheerful sauce, as well as more emotional communication and interaction between me and marmalade. Therefore, I share my experience and lessons in the process of walking the cat, hoping to enlighten the like-minded cat friends.

       First of all, why walk the cat?

       As an ordinary cat mother, I care about the health and happiness of catsup. If walking a cat can make it healthier and happier, I’m willing to try.

       I often see marmalade standing in the window looking out. The world outside the window is so close and far away to it. Once in a while, a bird flies out of the window, and Mi Chua chirps excitedly; a leaf floats on the ground, but it is far away from its gaze. I feel from the bottom of my heart that this child really wants to go out and have a look – it needs to really touch the earth, feel the light of grass across the body, feel the wind brushing the hair smart, enjoy a moment of freedom – I want to give it freedom by walking the cat, so that its cat has more happy things to happen.

       When I heard about the story of cat friend’s cat running away from home and looking for no fruit, I couldn’t help thinking that if one day the cat also ran away from home, I sincerely hope that it can remember the way home, the hot cat rice cooked by Ma Ma Ma himself, and where the blue star man who is happy for it and worried about being domesticated by him is waiting for him to go home – I want to walk the cat and let it remember The way home.

       This is my original intention of walking a cat as an ordinary cat mother.

       The following is the explanation given by Dr. Dai Genji, an animal behavior expert, in his article “walking the cat” — “a cat is an animal that hunts alone, and its basic behavior is to hunt, swim, and patrol territory However, after being raised at home, it can’t go out and can only sit in front of the window and look at the outside world. It wants to have a look, but it is blocked by doors and windows. If the cat lacks the basic behavioral needs of the cat all his life, it will seek for outlets in other places, which will lead to many abnormal behavior problems, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, excessive licking, hallucinations, hypersensitivity and so on Question. Many people know that there is a urinary tract disease, feline reproductive tract syndrome (FUS), or feline interstitial cystitis (FIC). These problems are greatly reduced after walking the cat, so do you still want to reject walking the cat? “

       Both my personal experience and the professional opinions of animal behavior experts have confirmed that walking cats can bring more health and happiness to cats. If you want to make the cat’s life more quality, you might as well try walking the cat. If the method is right, I believe you can have more interaction and communication with the cat, so that the cat is more healthy and happy.

       Before you decide to walk your cat, it’s best to consider the following questions for your cat:

       1. Is there a suitable environment near my home to walk the cat?

       I think that walking cats needs a relatively closed, safe and clean environment. The best place for cat walking should be arranged in a relatively closed community, surrounded by walls, far away from the city’s main roads or roads. If it is a building near the road, there is no separation belt or fence, there are few green belts, there are many shops, there are many pedestrians and vehicles This kind of environment may easily make the cat scared or encounter danger, and then it is difficult to adapt to walking the cat.

       I often walk the cat in the green belt between the buildings in the community. There are very few pedestrians and no vehicles. The vehicles parked beside the green belt and the small bushes can make the environment more closed and safe. Every time you go out, you will feel very safe when you come to this place where you can block your tracks. You will obviously show a calm and comfortable mood (the posture and rhythm of walking and squatting as normal as at home, the tail will swing or stand up naturally, the tip of the tail will be crooked and the ears will be erect).

       In addition to places, it’s better to walk cats when there are fewer people and fewer cars.

       At first, I would go out at noon or in the afternoon during the day, but later I would go out at night or late at night. No matter what the time period is, as long as the “convenience” and “less people and less cars” can be considered. Less people and less cars means that it’s best to avoid stress without any other person’s environment except yourself.

       2. Do I have enough patience and perseverance to walk the cat?

       Going out for a cat walk is not only a challenge for cats, but also for people. From adapting to the rope, to adapting to the external environment, and then to going home on time, the whole process needs a long time to guide slowly. During this period, you must be patient enough to feel the cat’s feelings, respond to the needs of the cat, and adjust the rhythm and method of your training.

       When the cat gradually adapt to walking the cat, you need to take time out (preferably every day) to go out for a walk with it, and always take care of it to avoid stress or danger. After the cat is used to walking the cat, if the owner can’t find time to go out with it and keep the cat at home for a long time, it is more likely to make it anxious and depressed. So make sure you have enough patience and time to devote your time and energy to the health and happiness of your cat, and then consider trying to walk the cat.

       After solving the above external and internal causes, we can prepare for walking the cat.

       What preparations do you need to do to walk the cat?

       1. In vivo and in vitro deworming and immune work.

       Cats can easily come into contact with parasites when they go out. Doing a good job in vivo and in vitro deworming and flea immunity in advance can help cats resist the invasion of external environment and ensure healthy state. When using insect repellent and flea removing drugs, it is necessary to carefully read the drug instructions, select the appropriate medicine according to the cat’s age and weight, and determine the feeding dose and feeding cycle (generally speaking, the internal anthelmintic is fed once every three months, and the external insect repellent drop is used once a month).

       Immunization refers to the need for regular vaccination. One dose of cat triple vaccine can prevent cat plague, feline viral rhinotracheitis and feline calicivirus. The first inoculation was conducted at 8 weeks old, the second at 11-12 weeks, the third at 15-16 weeks, and the fourth at 1-year-old, and then every three years. Some hospitals can carry out antibody testing, and if there are antibodies, there is no need for vaccination. Although the probability of rabies virus infection in cats is very small, once the rabies virus is transmitted to human beings, there will be a fatal risk. Therefore, it is necessary to vaccinate for the first time at the age of 15-16 weeks, the second time at the age of one year, and then once every three years.

       2. Purchase safe and fit cat walking equipment.

       Different from dogs, cats have a strong bone shrinking power to help, ordinary dogs with the chest strap I am afraid it is difficult to make them obedient. After buying cat walking equipment, be sure to wear training at home first. It’s a good way to test whether the strap is easy to break free: after wearing it neatly, stand face to face with the cat, and pull the strap in your direction. The common position for cats to take off the pectoral strap is to draw back the forelimb close to the body, and shrink the head and brain at the same time. The unfit chest strap can be easily freed at this time.

       Animal behavior expert Dr. Dai Genji recommended wearing a chest strap (cat walking clothing) like clothes in his article “walking cats” to prevent cats from breaking free. I have always used and recommended walking cat clothing, because the contact area between the clothing and the cat’s body is relatively large, and the pressure on the cat’s body is relatively small (under the condition of equal force, the greater the contact area, the smaller the pressure), which is more comfortable and safe. In particular, it is necessary to prohibit directly hanging a rope on the collar to go out, which will not only easily hurt the cat, but also can not guarantee that the cat will not break free.

       It is recommended to avoid fixed length ropes (mostly 1. 2¡«1¡£ The fixed length rope is not conducive to the cat’s free movement, and it may be released by mistake, resulting in the cat running away. The range of activity less than 2 meters is very limited for people and cats. It is recommended that cat friends use automatic telescopic tractor. When the cat is used to walking the cat, it is excited to run to the green belt when going out, and you have to chase after you to keep up with it; occasionally it chases insects or shuttles through the grass, and the fixed length of the traction rope is obviously inadequate and useless. The common traction ropes on the market are 3 meters, 5 meters and more than 5 meters. Personal suggestion: at least 3M, 5m is better. I believe that every cat father and mother who is willing to walk the cat is to make the cat more healthy and happy, and maximize the freedom, comfort and experience of the cat in the selection of walking equipment.

       3. Choose a suitable cat snack.

       The guide of walking the cat needs continuous reward. The quickest and simplest reward is snacks. The choice of snacks can be fresh meat such as chicken and beef cooked by oneself, or it can be a small snack for cats on the market. No matter what kind of snacks, it is best to meet the following three conditions:

       Cats love to eat. There are four stages in the guidance of walking the cat, i.e. letting the cat accept the walking clothes, letting the cat accept being led around the house, making the cat willing to go out and letting the cat like to go home. The attraction of snacks to cats must be very great. Otherwise, if the cat is not willing to accept your guidance for the sake of snacks, the training of walking may become more difficult.

       (2) the particles are very small. Each step needs to be repeated many times, and each step needs many days. Snacks are just for reward, not to feed the cat. If a cat eats 15-30kcal of food per meal, it can be full. If a few snacks make the cat full, can we expect the high cold and arrogant cat people to take care of you in the following training? In addition, the cat’s mouth and esophagus are smaller, and the teeth are more used to tear than chew, so small particles of snacks can also avoid blocking or damaging the cat’s digestive tract. The best snack can let the cat eat, and a cat food about the size of it.

       3. Snacks should be moderate. In order to ensure that the cat can still eat enough nutrition during the training period, the proportion of snacks should not be too high. I suggest that the calories of snacks should not exceed 20% of the cat’s daily metabolizable energy, and that the cat’s comprehensive nutrients should be supplemented at the same time. If cooked fresh meat is used as a reward snack, for example, for a healthy adult cat weighing 4kg, the feeding amount of pork loin / pig lean meat is no more than 30g / D, that of lean beef is not more than 40g / D, that of chicken breast is not more than 40g / D, that of duck breast is not more than 50g / D, and that of fish and shrimp is not more than 40g / D, and it is supplemented with cat’s comprehensive nutrients Full nutrition.

       After doing all the above preparations, we can start the cat walking training.

Cats also need to be taken out for a walk

       ¡¡¡¡

       In the impression of many cat owners, cats are kept at home for a lifetime. Unlike dogs, they need to be pulled out to play. In fact, this idea is wrong. Cats are also curious and want to see the outside world. Dr. Dai Genji, an animal behavior expert in Taiwan, has also said that if the cat is not taken for a walk, it may have problems such as anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, excessive licking, hallucinations, and hypersensitivity.

       Walking the cat can not only improve the cat’s anxiety behavior problems, but also reduce the incidence of feline reproductive tract syndrome (FUS) and feline interstitial cystitis (FIC). These two diseases are common in general domestic cats. Because if conditions permit, the cat will still have to take it out for a walk.

       But speaking of walking the cat is simple, but it is difficult to implement it. If you can’t get a good cat, you may be lost. If you don’t know how to walk and don’t make enough preparation, don’t take the lead to walk the cat in a hurry! Cats who have not used the cat’s rope are likely to have an aversion to the rope and the chest strap; and the cat who has not been out of the door is also easy to be frightened. If you escape, it is likely that it will never be found again.

Not all cats are suitable for going out

       ¡¡¡¡

       Many cat owners will feel envious when they see others playing with their cats outside, so they will try to take their cats out for fun. However, Xiaobian has to remind us that we should be careful when walking cats. Not all cats can take them out. Maybe in the end, we will lose the cats instead of walking them. Today, Xiaobian will take a look at the cats with you What should we pay attention to!

       What kind of cat is suitable for walking

       Gentle character of the cat, Xiaobian thinks that first of all, the cat should be gentle enough to not take the initiative to attack people. Otherwise, even if you want to take the cat out of the door, maybe the cat will hurt you all over because of fear

       Some cats are not afraid to see strangers. Some cats are calm and have no fear when they see strangers. Such cats will be more calm when they go out. If your cat is out of sight of strangers coming home, be careful. Here, Xiaobian tells me a real case of my own. My cat is relatively gentle at home, but it will hide when someone comes! That time I tried to take the cat out of the door, and the result was dramatic. As soon as I got to the gate, the cat broke free of the rope and ran away. Fortunately, it was near home, and soon came back by itself! In addition, don’t think it’s safe to wear a collar and a rope. Don’t underestimate the cat’s bone shrinking skill!

       Healthy cats, cats at home for a long time under the care of their owners, if they go out in bad health, it is easy to infect bacteria outside, leading to cat illness.

       Second, we must take good traction rope

       The cat’s explosive power is very strong. It can jump and jump. There are many cars coming and going in the residential area. Therefore, when walking the cat, you must be able to control him and prevent him from running around. Otherwise, it is difficult for the owner to catch him and traffic accidents may occur. In order to prevent the cat from running away in the process of “walking around the corner”, the cat should be put on a shoulder strap.

       The cat is not used to bondage at first, so she lies on the ground and tries to get rid of it. So don’t rush to “cover” him. The owner first drags the shoulder strap around the house to attract the cat’s attention and let him chase him. When he becomes familiar with the device, separate the shoulder strap from the traction belt and only put it on (be sure to be in the room, not outdoors) to familiarize him with the feeling of wearing the shoulder strap first. Slowly, if he doesn’t resist the harness, the owner can try to hang the traction rope on the shoulder sleeve, take him around the room and teach him to get used to the restraint. When you take the cat out for the first time, you should go downstairs or in a safe place outside the house. Don’t go too far. Let the cat get used to the sound and scenery around. Pay attention to the cat’s reaction. If the cat is very scared, I advise you to give up the idea of taking the cat for a walk instead of forcing it. Over forcing the cat will only make the cat feel afraid, may hurt the owner in panic, and may have a bad impact on the cat’s character. This is not what the owner and the cat want. How your cat behaves depends on the cat’s personality, so before using the leash to walk the cat, you should know your cat and let the cat start walking by itself instead of being dragged by its owner. If your cat is afraid to go out and doesn’t have absolute trust with its owner, it will try to escape the leash. If so, don’t take it out again.

       3. Pay attention to contact with dogs

       If the cat has been used to wearing shoulder strap in the outdoor walk, but also pay attention to the dog in the community! Most dogs are afraid of cats. However, close contact between cats and strange dogs can also lead to some parasitic infections (such as fleas) and other cat and dog diseases. In addition, it must be noted that some dogs are aggressive and may cause harm to cats. In addition, we should also pay attention to control the cat not to be too close to the dog. The cat’s reaction speed is faster than the dog’s, and the sudden claw may hurt the eyes of those short legged dogs with bulging eyes.

       In addition, if your cat shows reluctance to go out, please don’t force them! There is absolutely no benefit in this way!

Cats also need to go out for a walk

       Taking the dog out for a walk is a matter of course for all dog owners. But few cat owners in China know that cats need to be taken for a walk. However, the scheme of walking the cat and the dog is quite different. Walking the dog is taking the dog for a walk, while walking the cat is taking you out with the cat! The reason for this difference is that cats are solitary hunters and need to explore and patrol their territory. If you don’t know how to walk a cat, you will lack the behavior that you should have naturally for a lifetime. If you don’t know how to walk a cat for a long time, it will lead to many abnormal behavior problems, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, excessive licking, hallucinations, and hypersensitivity. Of course, the knowledge of walking a cat is not small. If you don’t prepare well in advance, and you don’t have the relevant professional knowledge, it’s not recommended to take it out of the house rashly. To ensure the safety of walking the cat and how to make the cat adapt to the rope and chest strap step by step, it is recommended to consult professionals and do enough homework before walking the cat. In the past, cats were often labeled as mysterious, dark and evil These words have been seriously misunderstood by the public. Especially those who have never owned a cat, they often draw a horror pronoun on the sound of a cat. In fact, there are many cat owners who do not know the cat’s behavior and language. In fact: there are 12 kinds of cat calls. If you can understand these, you will find that cats are not mysterious, evil and nine life monsters, but elegant, independent, and mutual help with human beings.

Do cats need to go out for a walk

       Dogs need to be pulled out every day to spend their energy. Do cats need to take them out? Many cat owners say that cats don’t need to slide. They prefer to lie on the window sill to bask in the sun. But is this really the case?

       According to the results of the study, cats will not be happy for a lifetime if they don’t walk them. In fact, in people’s eyes, pet dogs and cats are quite different. Dogs are cheerful and lively, and they seem closer to human beings. Of course, walking dogs has become a major way of communication between owners and dogs. But the cat, in the life appears aloof, cannot approach. Cats are more likely to lie on the balcony to bask in the sun, rather than circling around their owners like dogs. Therefore, people prefer walking dogs to cats in life.

       In practice, however, dogs need to be walked, so do cats. On a warm, comfortable day, you can also carry your cat outside. Or the same to the cat on the traction rope, and then pull it to the grass walk, stroll.

       Of course, it’s worth noting that cats and dogs have totally different personalities, so they should be treated differently when walking cats. Before you take your cat out for a walk, you should familiarize the cat with the traction rope and the chest strap (many cats don’t adapt to these things for the first time, and they can’t even walk the road, which is caused by the habit of the cat. Just like dressing the cat for the first time, the cat will also be uncomfortable and will not even walk the road). Take the cat out for a walk in life, but absolutely not If you can take it out in a hurry, be sure to prepare yourself and take your cat for a walk when everything is ready.

My cat walking diary (2)

       In the last issue, we introduced the benefits of walking the cat and the preparation before walking the cat. In this issue, we introduced the methods of walking the cat, the possible problems and the corresponding solutions.

       There are four stages in walking the cat: let the cat accept the cat’s clothing; let the cat accept to walk around the house in the cat’s clothing; let the cat be willing to go out; let the cat go home consciously. The core of training is to make the cat walk the cat and good things together.

       The first stage: let the cat accept the cat clothing / chest strap

       If your cat is still calm after putting on a walk, Congratulations, you can jump straight to the second stage. If your cat can’t walk immediately or is struggling to get rid of it as soon as it’s put on a cat walk suit / chest strap, you’ll have to start guiding honestly from the first stage.

       Get ready to walk your cat clothes and snacks. Take out the cat’s clothing. If the cat shows interest in walking the cat’s clothing, such as watching, smelling, rubbing, and touching, give a snack immediately. If it bites the cat’s clothing, it immediately takes away the cat’s clothing and snacks. Repeat this a few times a day for a few days. Let the cat feel that as long as the cat’s clothing appears in front of him, there will be snacks (good things) appear, so that the cat has a good impression of walking the cat’s clothing. When one day you take out the cat’s clothing, the cat will be happy to run over, you can put on the cat’s clothing.

       Give your cat more snacks as soon as you put it on. Cat happy to eat snacks, and then take off the cat’s clothing, take away snacks. Wear it like this every time, repeat it a few times a day, for a few days. Let the cat feel that there will be snacks (good things) when wearing the cat’s clothing, so that the cat will no longer resist walking the cat’s clothing. When one day you put the cat on the cat’s walking clothes, it will no longer resist and do not break free, but completely ignore the existence of the cat walking clothing, indicating that the first stage has been successful.

       Stage 2: let the cat accept walking around the house in a cat walking suit / chest strap

       When the cat fully accepted the cat walk clothing, put on the cat walk clothing (first do not hang the traction rope), throw the snacks on the ground, let the cat run to eat. Eat one and drop one. Like this, get your cat used to walking around the house in a cat walking suit. Again, repeat it a few times a day for a few days. Fortunately, my sauce doesn’t exclude wearing clothes, so I can be regarded as directly entering the second stage. I often put on my cat’s clothes and then give rice to eat. It seems to be completely immersed in the satisfaction of eating, and it is easy to adapt.

       Then, put on the cat’s clothes for walking, hang the traction rope at the same time, throw the snacks on the ground, and let the cat run to eat. Eat one and drop one. Let the cat get used to walking around the house with a tow rope on. One day, when the cat is very accustomed to wearing the equipment for walking the cat and is able to move freely at home, the second stage is successful.

       When I was training to walk a cat, I was very stupid. I didn’t know that I had to run to eat snacks by myself. When I dropped the snacks on the ground, I couldn’t attract it. So I walked around the house, and then asked him to come to my place to eat snacks, which is quite hard All in all, it can be said that it can walk around the house freely after wearing the cat walking clothes.

       There are many ways to make a cat adapt to walking cat clothing. The general principle is to let the cat gradually ignore the cat’s clothing, turn its attention to snacks (good things), and associate everything related to cat walking with snacks (good things). If your cat loves to play with the cat stick, you can also try wearing clothes to play with it, so that the cat can forget the existence of walking cat clothes and focus on the cat Teaser (good thing).

       The third stage: make the cat willing to go out

       Find a quiet time when there is no one, put on the cat’s clothes and traction rope, and open the door. Give it time to see for itself. If the cat runs away immediately, you can attract it to the door through snacks or cat stick. You can even throw the snack out of the door, or you can go outside the door and wait for it to come to you for a snack.

       Remember not to take the cat out of the door impatiently, it will make it have a sense of fear outside the door, have a sense of distrust of you, and then run home to hide. It is normal for a cat not to go out for a long time to be afraid of the strange world. Be patient and let it smell, know and be familiar with it slowly. You just need to guide him patiently on the side, and don’t interfere rudely.

       When the cat is no longer afraid of the door, you can take the cat downstairs and let it explore slowly when there are no strangers. The first time I carried the catsup downstairs, I only dared to stand or squat by the entrance of the corridor, crouching for fear of being seen, and at the same time looked curiously into the distance. Any bit of wind and grass can make it nervous. Even if I accidentally step on a loose floor tile or manhole cover, it will be startled. The first day of walking the cat, the actual time is only five minutes downstairs. Seeing that MI sauce was really scared, I opened the unit door and took marmalade home.

       In the next few days, I carried the sauce downstairs and put it near the entrance of the corridor for it to explore by itself. Where it wants to go and smell, I will follow it and stay there without disturbing. From the first five minutes, to the next 10 minutes, 15 minutes Slowly, it can stick to the longer and longer, the scope of bold activities is also growing. Slowly, it found the green belt downstairs. It was also the most popular place for cat walking. There were parking vehicles and small trees blocking it. It was closed and quiet.

       Later, every day when it was time to walk the cat, it came over and looked at me sincerely and barked at me. I’m afraid I don’t understand what it means. It’s so cute to stand at the door and wink at me. When I put him on a cat walk, collar and leash, he was as good as a bat, as if he knew he could go out and play. The time of walking the cat is also basically maintained at about one hour, sometimes even for more than an hour, it does not want to go home. I never thought of a little woodlouse who had never gone out and went out to love the world outside.

       Stage four: let the cat go home consciously

       After adapting to the life of going out, she didn’t want to go home for a long time. Maybe she was afraid that she would never come out the next day. So I first adjusted the feeding pattern. My family is a fixed amount of feeding, sauce every morning, afternoon, evening, before going to bed. I walk the cat in the evening, so I combine the meal at night with the meal before going to bed, and feed it when I walk the cat home at night. So for a long time, the sauce was hungry to go out to play, and when I got home, I had a hot meal to eat.

       In addition, before the end of the cat walk, I will give jam a clear instruction. When the time comes, I’ll keep repeating the words “Mi sauce, I’m home.”. If the sauce doesn’t respond, I’ll hold on to the traction rope so that it can’t move on. Then I’ll take it to the intersection closer to home and repeat the word “go home.”. If it’s going home, I’ll let it go back; if it turns around and runs toward the green belt, I’ll hold the rope so it can’t move, and carry it closer to home, and repeat the action. If it still doesn’t go home, I’ll take it home. Don’t try to pull the cat home with the tow rope. The cat will stay on the ground and can’t solve the problem. Always remember that walking the cat is a kind of guidance, to the results you expect, rather than a simple rough handling.

       After returning home, immediately serve hot rice, it will be satisfied to eat, and will not go home as a bad thing to look at. Over time, it also knows that once I say the word “go home”, no matter how much it plays, it will have to go home with me. It’s like a wake-up call. As long as I hold the leash while walking the cat, it will stop; as long as I say “go home”, it will go home. Even sometimes it’s enough to play outside by itself. I don’t need to say that it takes the initiative to go home, which is very gratifying.

       Once you start walking your cat, stick to it. Don’t fish for three days and dry the net for two days. Let the cat know that the next day or can come out to play, it is naturally willing to go home with you, today did not play enough, anyway, tomorrow can go out to play.

       Cat is a very human animal. As long as you learn how to communicate and interact with it and listen to its needs carefully, it will become a clever and sensible child. I remember that one night it was very cold. After walking for a while, I got a runny nose. So I said to MI Chua, “let’s play for another 10 minutes and then go home. It’s so cold.” as a result, she hesitated and went straight back. I was so moved that I thought the child was so sweet.

       In the process of walking the cat, I have also encountered some lessons, which make people remember deeply. In order to avoid repeating my mistakes, I will summarize some common mistakes and common problems for your reference.

       1. What should I do when I meet a stranger while walking my cat?

       If the stranger is far away from you, touch the cat and cover it with body or clothes. Create a relatively closed space and give it a sense of security. If the stranger keeps approaching or running around, even trying to touch it, tell the stranger to let him go and allow the cat to go away Don’t try to stop it. Instead of trying to stop it, keep up with it to prevent it from being in danger.

       Once I went downstairs with my sauce in my arms. There was an aunt reading a newspaper downstairs. I thought the sauce had been out many times. I held it and passed by quickly. The aunt should have no problem. Who knows when passing by that aunt, the aunt saw the sauce and screamed. The cry scared Mi sauce, and Mi sauce broke away from my arms and ran home. As a result, it did not dare to go out on that day. This makes me realize that I should not think about problems in the human mind. I think that strangers will not hurt them, and it doesn’t matter if they are close. Instead, I should think about problems in the way of catsup. It is afraid of strangers, so I should avoid contact with strangers.

       Accept the cat’s emotions, think from the cat’s point of view, allow him to deal with the problem in his own way, and create an environment that gives him a sense of security. Only when you feel the cat’s needs can you gain the trust of the cat.

       What are the possible dangers when walking a cat?

       The dangers I’ve encountered are: the cat breaks free of the harness; the leash slips; the cat swallows foreign bodies; and the stray cat.

       If the cat breaks free of the chest strap outside, it is a very terrible thing, and it may be lost. How to prevent the cat from getting rid of the chest strap?

       (1) when choosing the chest strap, we must pay attention to the two points of size and reasonable design, and try it on at home to ensure that it is safe and firm before going out.

       (2) when walking the cat, keep the cat in line of sight all the time, and pay attention to the surrounding environment, so as to avoid frightening the cat by pedestrians, vehicles and sudden sounds. Maybe a bicycle in the distance doesn’t matter to you at all, but it may be a very dangerous signal for the cat, which may make it panic and run around If the cat runs away, your first reaction is not to stop it, but to catch up with protection. If you stop him from escaping what he thinks is a dangerous situation, he will try his best to get rid of his chest strap, regardless of whether he will get hurt or run away.

       (3) wear collar, cat card and bell. If you are walking the cat at night, it is better to have the function of light or reflection. If the cat breaks free of the chest strap and runs away, these items can be found quickly.

       If the traction rope is not carefully released, it may also cause the cat to run away. How to prevent the traction rope from slipping?

       (1) hold the traction rope tightly and do not let go because of playing with the mobile phone or being distracted.

       (2) use automatic telescopic traction rope. The automatic telescopic traction rope is relatively heavy, even if it slips down, it can make a sound or get stuck when it is dragged on the ground, which is easier to retrieve. If it was just a short rope, it would not be so easy to find.

       It’s also dangerous for cats to swallow foreign bodies. Once I ate some smoked fish snack for sauce. Unexpectedly, it licked the cigarette end on the ground as a smoked fish that night. Fortunately, I found out and stopped it in time. Therefore, when the cat is walking outside, the owner should keep an eye on it, always observe its movement, and stop it from swallowing insects, plastic, cigarette butts and other potentially poisonous things.

       Stray cats are cute, but need to avoid contact. Stray cats have not been immunized to expel insects, may carry parasites, calicivirus, feline leukemia virus, rabies virus and other unknown sources of infection, cats touching nose or fighting with each other may spread the disease. Therefore, it is suggested to avoid contact with stray cats and be responsible for their own cats.

       3. What should cats do if they roll / pee / burrow in the grass?

       Male cats who are not sterilized may urinate while walking the cat, which may be avoided after sterilization.

       A cat may roll when it smells a special smell on the ground or in the grass, and you can avoid it by holding it away.

       If a cat wants to go to places you can’t go to, such as the bottom of the car, grass, narrow crevices, sewers and other places, you should give it a command quickly before it goes in, such as pulling the traction rope and shouting “kitty sauce (cat’s name), stop”. If it changes to the right direction, it can release the traction rope. Try it a few more times, and it will know that when you give the command and hold on to the tow line, it can’t go any further, it has to change its course.

       4. How to clean up after walking the cat home?

       My cleaning method is very simple, after home with a small towel dipped in hot water, wipe the face, hair, wipe feet, feet, especially dirty feet will use pet shower gel cleaning. Usually take a bath once a month, and apply flea removing drops on the second day after bathing.

       5. What to do when it rains or there is no time for cats?

       If you can’t walk the cat on rainy days, you can let the cat walk in the corridor, climb the stairs, or play cat stick instead. If you don’t have time to walk the cat, if the cat doesn’t ask to go out, take a day off; if the cat yells to go out, you can play with the cat stick for a while to avoid being emotional. When the cat is used to walking the cat, we must insist on it, just like walking and exercising. Otherwise, the cat will be anxious and depressed because he can’t go out.

       In fact, every cat standing at the window staring at the outside world has a heart longing for freedom, but we have not been able to let it experience freedom for such and other reasons. It’s much more fortunate to be able to truly feel the world and experience the free life, compared with the life of being confined to the room, isolated from the world and looking at the same scenery all his life. If conditions permit, you also join me to walk the cat!
