    Any good harness for kittens?

    Hi all! We have had little Nimbus for a week now! We want to start harness training him so he can walk on a leash. I have bought two so far specifically for kittens, in the smallest sizes.

    Cat Harness and walking advice

    Hey there! My sphynx Mouse is definitely a door dasher, I don't mind as I live in a secure block of flats and there's nowhere for him to go in the corridor once he manages to escape my flat. He runs around in the hallway, smelling all the smells and exploring and doesn't appear stressed or...

    Harnesses, strollers...

    A few weeks ago while still all broody waiting for Mitsou's gotcha day, I bought a pet stroller from eBay. My plan is to use the stroller to walk my two Sphynxies and possibly Victor (if he fits). To get them used to it, I leave the stroller open with brakes on in my living room. They've all...

    Teaching my Sphynx to walk on leash

    Hi! I'm in the process of teaching Kisa to walk on a leash. Right now she's just getting used to the harness. I have sessions everyday where I put on the harness and play with her, pet her and give her treats to make her associate the harness with something good. But she tends to bite on it a...
