Hi all! I don't remember if I introduced myself on this forum already before Marbles is a 7-month old girl who came to us from foster care; she has always lived inside. She looooooves to look outside through our big windows though and chirp at the wildlife. I have been thinking about harness-training her. I always had indoor-outdoor cats growing up, but I do feel it's safest for her to not roam free in our neighborhood; there are lots of dogs, and I had so many cats lost or killed outside when I was a kid. But I feel badly for her being inside. She is a single cat, and I don't know if I can ever convince my husband to let her have a playmate. I feel like walking her outside would open up the world a little more for her and give her more interesting things to do. What are the pros and cons of harness-walking cats? I have read it can make them more dissatisfied with being inside, or make them into door-darters. Is this often the case? She doesn't try to get out so far. Being that she has never experienced outside, I don't really want to make her dissatisfied with her life. If you walk your cat, do they love it? Is it worth it? Also, is it hard to teach them at this age? I didn't really consider doing it til recently, and now wish I had started younger. Thanks!
