The Kitty Stroller

So back in March on the tv show The Dog Whisperer, Cesar suggested that if you own a cat, to get a pet stroller and take the cat on walks with your dog to further establish the cat as part of the pack.

On a lark I told my boyfriend that he should get a kitty stroller so we could bring his cat, Squash, with us on our 2 mile walk to the mall each weekend. It's a mile each way, we walk there and sit in the park area at the mall for an hour or so with coffee and tea then walk home.
I was shocked when he thought it was a good idea and ordered the Jeep Wrangler stroller online for $99 and even more shocked when we put a harness with id tag on his kitty and loaded him into the stroller and took off for the mall for the first time.

Kitty was fine with the whole process. He's a 12 year old house cat who has never been outside, and has never worn a collar or harness before. But he was just fine. Now every week BF even rolls him into Peet's Coffee while Kitai and I waited outside for them.

So just wanted to say thanks to Cesar for the suggestion. It's great being able to spend time together with Squash included on our walks. We're looking forward to all 4 of us spending the extra time together this summer.
