I trained my cat Molly from the time she was 9 weeks old. I would put a hardness on her (DO NOT USE A COLLAR WITH LEASH AS CATS CAN GET OUT OF THIS) also make sure that the harness is not loose around the chest because the cat will try to get the harness off at first and they can hook their bottom teeth in the leash. Get a pet store to fit your cat with a proper harness. Take your cat out into the backyard (NEVER take your cat out where it's in too open a space or too much noise.) Wander around with the cat for approximately 5 minutes and do this for 3 - 4 days and each time you take them out go out for 10 - 15 minutes. I've seen many people travel (camping) with their cat on a leash and that's what my cat wears when we go camping and fishing.

How do you get your get your cat to walk on a leash?

With a LOT of patience. You may want to get the cat used to the leash just being near her first, not seeing it as a threat. Then if you have a room that is safe to do so, let the cat wear the leash inside for a short time each day. That is only if there is nothing that the cat will pull down on itself or that can otherwise harm the cat if you do so. Stay with the cat and talk to it reassuringly when leash training. Eventually try picking up the other end of the leash and progress to walking with the cat. Don't be in a hurry or the cat will sense your tenseness and will become tense itself.

A cat on a leash? I don't think so! You cant put a cat on a leash that's for dogs! Your supposed to let the cat out let it explore the area. Then when the cat is ready it will come back to your home. Cats always find their ways back home. They are very smart. Don't worry about it running away. Only worry about it running away when its older.

If you have a Toyger cat, a Sokoke cat, a Savannah, a cheetoh cat, a boxer dog, and a Siberian husky and all of them are active, they can be leash trained. The cats often take more work to train than the dogs. The cats all have medium coats except for the cheetoh which is short. The Boxer has a short coat and the husky has a long and thick coat.

If you have it on a leash, yank the leash to make it stop. If it's not on a leash, yell "NO!!" at it, and it should stop and look at you. Train it to stop by bribing it with treats, and eventually it will learn to not roll in dead things. I had the same problem, so I know :)
