Walking your cat is officially the New Big Thing

OregonLive.com, the site for the Oregonian newspaper, has an article that mentioned pet strollers entitled, "Harness cat's energy for a walk on outside." Written by Deborah Wood, the article announces, "There's no doubt about it: Walking your cat is officially the New Big Thing."

Deborah writes about how cat owners who want to let their felines get some fresh air shouldn't use a collar, since cats can escape easily. Some cats may take to a harness, although some won't. And for those cats, there are pet strollers!

The article mentions one cat owner and her tabby cat, Zero. He rides in a pet stroller and is "safe from dogs but can see and smell the great outdoors."

Zero "loves his stroller". Says his owner, "When Zero and I get home from our walk, he doesn't want to get out of the stroller. He wants to go back out for another walk. That's great for me because it's good exercise."

Check out the entire article on OregonLive.com.

An online store that gives a rat terrier's pa-toot about the products they sell enough to have a blog !?!?! Holy Schnauzer, Batman. I'm sold.

Holy Schnauzer, Batman? I don't recall that link in "Dark Knight!"

Of course we care about the product (and about the pets in the product.)

Thanks for posting!

Wow ... I usually feel a little goofy walking my cat in a stroller, so I'm thrilled to know I'm actually a trendsetter. :-)

I sent you a tweet a few days ago, since I finally figured out how to view @replies from those who aren't contacts ... Sorry! Anyway, you're welcome to use any photos of our cat stroller as long as they're credited and/or linked back. Here's one of my favorites: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jesshibb/2826507024. Enjoy!
