Pet Product Review – Flexi Retractable leash for Cats
So, ever think about taking your cat for a walk? I’m sure they’d like it. But it just seems so unnatural. Mostly because up until now there have not been any products, leashes or even harnesses to take your feline for a promanade.
Well, finally Flexy the world’s leader in reliable well constructed retractable leashes hass developed a retractable leash just for cats.
The leash extends up to 10 feet and has two buttons right by the thumb that operate teh lock and secure the brake.
I used the leash with my cat stinky. It did take a while. At first we went only in the hallway of my building, but then I took him to the vet for his annual physical and vaccinations and used it as a back up to his crate. It felt nice to have that extra protection should he get loose.
But I do have some hesitations about this leash. Cats are very unpredictable, so I guess I cannot recommend walking your cat. That’s the first, next, you need to have a harness. If you don’t have a harness, forget about it. Also have patience. This is something you would use after attempting to walk your cat in a small room for months. Don’t have high expectations up front. Drs. Foster and Smith have harnesses and the leash for about $19. You can buy one at: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=19954 They come in pink and black.
