Fettered Felines: Should You Leash Train Your Cat? Con't2

Bringing the Best of the Outdoors to Your Cat
Don't forget to look beyond the boundaries of your own yard. Dangerous encounters can come from any direction. Do your neighbors keep an unleashed, cat-hating dog? Are there other animals that may pose a risk to your pet?

And finally, take your cat to a quiet outdoor area she can enjoy. Scary stimuli like traffic, barking dogs and rambunctious children are likely to take the fun out of her fresh air experience. When you've found the perfect location, don't forget that leashes come with two ends—one with a clip for your pet, and one with a handle for you. Never leave your cat tied outside, defenseless against other animals and at risk of entanglement.
