Whether your feline is an outdoor cat or a laid-back indoor kitty, there’s a way you and your pet can spend quality time together. While a cat leash is one way to share a walk with your kit, it’s not for every cat, so for safety and enjoyment, a specially designed pet stroller for cats is the way to go.
A pet stroller is similar in design to a small child’s push chair but built for your cat’s size as well as comfort and security. You simply pop your cat inside the stroller, secure them via leash, harness or zip cover, and you are both ready for a walk in the fresh air. Cat strollers are also a good way of getting your cat to those important vet appointments, especially if you don’t have a car to get you from A to B. So, with pet safety and comfort in mind, we walk you through seven of the best kitty strollers on the market.Related Post: Cat Harness

With their free-spirit nature, not all cats work well with a leash. And, if your kitty is a die-hard indoor cat, going outside can be a stressful experience. But there are times when you may want to – or even have to – take your cat out and a stroller specifically designed for pets is a good way to do it. Here are the top reasons why you may need a pet stroller:
You want your new cat stroller to be one of your kitty’s favorite places, so check out the following before you buy:
A: With the right introduction, most cats will learn to feel safe and comfortable in a stroller, and many will actually enjoy the ride. And the raised height of the stroller is a much more secure place for them to be, which all adds to their feelings of safety. However, never force a cat to sit in or go for a ride in a stroller as this will only heighten any feelings of fear and they will learn to associate the stroller with these unpleasant feelings. If, after spending time introducing your cat to their new stroller they are still vocally or physically resistant to getting inside, you may need to accept that this is not your cat’s thing.
A: Your cat stroller should come with security, such as a zipper, harness or other fasteners, to keep your cat safe inside their stroller and prevent them from escaping. However, to get your cat comfortable enough to want to be put inside the stroller, you also need to give them the time to get used to their new feline chariot. This means building up the time they spend inside the stroller to investigate before you venture out on your first stroll outside. This way your cat can get used to the smaller space and associate it with feeling safe and not fearful.
A: As long as there’s sufficient room inside a stroller, there’s no reason why it shouldn’t carry two cats, as long as they can comfortably sit, stand and lie down next to each other. However, some strollers for cats are only designed for one cat so their size as well as design means it’s unsafe to carry any more.
With its lightweight, durable design, easy to maneuver wheels and under carriage storage basket, Elite Cat Jogger by P&P rides away with our top pick. With plenty of carriage space for a larger cat, it feels solid and secure, and with zipped mesh entry and two windows, there’s also plenty of ventilation. Add in a removable mattress, cup holder, comfort handle and a frame that folds flat in a flash and you get a quality everyday kitty stroller for your money.
