    One more question if you don't mind. For those of you walk your cats on a leash, do you use a long retractable leash? I thought it would be nice to give Nikita a little freedom to run and get some quality exercise.

    Thank you. :)

    Yes, I use retractable leashes...as I find they tend to stop and start a lot...so stop to sniff then bound ahead then stop again.... easiest then to have a retractable leash :)

    I use a retractable leash as well...but be careful with it...I almost severed a tendon in my finger recently when I was holding the leash part and Taj took off after a bird...not a smart move on my part.

    We haven't yet, but I want to get one. Kovu is still more scared than curious. I cannot wait for it to stop raining so we can take him out more than once a week!

    And make sure it's a quality retractable leash, even consider one made for dogs. My local dollar store sells retractable leashes for less than $5.00. Let's just say you get what you pay for.

    I've heard of the really cheap ones not retracting at a crucial time, with disastrous results....expect to pay around $30 for a good one.

    That is fine. Better safe than sorry. Of course that is separate from the harness. I suppose I should get her a tick and flea collar also. If you have any recommendations I'm all ears...

    This should be interesting getting her used to wearing collar and harness. Lol

    Instead of tick and flea collar, perhaps use something like Revolution...I honestly don't know anyone who uses Flea and tick collars anymore.

    Yes, flea and tick collars are so last century, LOL! Easier to use a liquid spot on product... within a day you won't know it is there...nor will they!

    Which type of retractable do you have, cord or belt?
