Working On Mobility With Your CH Cat? Consider A Harness
CH cat parents have found creative ways to help their less mobile cats exercise, which can help with strength and coordination — and may eventually lead to improved mobility. You may be familiar with the walkers or carts some have purchased and built for their CH cats.
Recently, CH cat parent Tanya discovered another great option: a harness.
While the harness is actually a doggie shoulder bag (I won’t even comment on that), it provides the same support as a walker.
The idea behind it is simple: By holding up your cat, your cat can then focus more on actually moving around, strengthening his muscles, and working on motions that can help with coordination.
This isn’t something that you’d want to do 24/7, but a few minutes a day could help as a form of therapy for your cat.
