No need to walk a cat 5

For some of us, this is a wonderful thing. For others, part of the joy of owning a dog is walking it.

No need to walk a cat 3

My cat comes in when she is hungry or when it is raining. She always hide under my table or sleeps on my notebook bag. She does her job well outside and cover it up. Dogs, have to walk and accompany when the doggy is doing his business while you stand beside him. Phew!

They don't need to be walked. But I have seen people walking cats on a harness and leash.

I suppose that is a good thing if the owner happens to be as lazy as his cat.

No need to walk a cat 4

I sometimes used to look on walking my dog as part of the human-canine bonding experience, but at 6am on a cold winter morning, or at 11:35 on a rainy November night, or at 12:00 noon on a brutally hot summer day, the last thing you want to do is walk a dog around the neighborhood, waiting for it to determine when the time is right to evacuate its bowels. My dog, familiar with the area I took it to, would sometimes take mercy on me and do what we had come out for her to do with relative speed. Other times, Cookie would get cute, taking her own sweet time, cavorting about as if we had allllll day long, enjoying the outdoors and the smell of the grass and whatever else it was she was sniffing at. Then, as I continued walking up the block with her in frustration, resigning myself to the fact that we weren't going to get back home anytime soon, she might decide that the moment had come and crouch down into position, knowing that no matter what, she was going to have the pleasure of a long, meandering stroll. Not having to walk the cat is a definite advantage, especially when you look out the window and there's a foot of snow on the ground and blizzard-style winds blowing. It's funny; when I was a teenager and living with my parents, we had both a cat and a dog. The cat we'd let out at night, and he'd return in the morning for a bite to eat and a nap. There were a lot of woods about, and one night I was walking the dog, and our cat came casually out from behind a clump of bushes as we walked, almost as if he were greeting a couple of friends. He and my dog sniffed each other casually, comfortable with each other's familiar scent, I guess, before the cat turned back around and disappeared into the undergrowth, and my dog and I continued on our way. Ships passing in the night.

Nothing against the dog because it isn't their fault, but when a dog is walked and they take a dump in someone's yard and the owner doesn't have the decency to clean up after them, kind of makes a person wonder how they live at home.

Cats pretty much go where they want to, so you need no leash.

One of the things that I liked about having a cat. Put in a cat door, it will go out and walk itself. "I'll go were I darn please, thank you!"

You know what - as dumb as it sounds -I never thought of that. Maybe I should get a cat?!

I think this is a negative. Lassitude is rampant. Walking the dog is the only exercise some folks get, and it is outside, in the open air, where they have a momentary opportunity to connect with the natural world. I can't tell you how many hikes I've gotten my youngest to go on with the dog. I'm not sure we would have gone but for the dog needing exercise! We humans would both have stayed in front of our computer screens.
