This Saturday is National Kitten Day, when we’re encouraged to donate, foster, or adopt. So here’s a question: Once you’ve got that cat, is it okay to take it out and walk it on a LEASH?
Anyone who does it will tell you to buy a harness, not just a collar. And don’t force your cat to do it if they don’t want to. Some cats aren’t into it.
But assuming they do like it, here’s the real question: Is it socially ACCEPTABLE to walk your cat?
Someone asked over 10,000 Americans . . . and most people now say YES. 58% of us are fine with it.
That includes 26% who “somewhat approve” and 32% who “STRONGLY approve.” Another 27% don’t have an opinion, or don’t care. And only 15% said they don’t think it’s okay.
Men were slightly more likely to disapprove . . .17% of men and 13% of women.
