Why should dogs get to have all of the outdoor fun this summer? Purina Pro Plan and Adventure Cats are teaming up to declare Wednesday, June 15th the first-ever national “Take Your Cat on an Adventure” Day! Whether you choose to take your feline friend on a canoe ride, for a walk in the park, or through a mini jungle gym inside of your own home, don't miss your chance to pique your kitty's natural curiosity tomorrow with a safe and fun new experience.
You might think the sight of a cat on a leash is a bit odd, but taking your kitty on walks is a great way to engage their natural exploratory instincts in a safe and controlled manner.
“Part of a cat’s true nature is their adventurous spirit – both indoors and out,” says Purina veterinarian Deb Greco. “Outdoor excursions and dynamic indoor experiences are not only fun, but can be a great way to enrich your cat’s life. Though we feel it’s a responsible choice for your cat to live indoors, leash training and venturing outdoors can be a great way to enrich your cat’s life. You feel great after spending time outdoors – imagine what a safe outdoor experience can do for your cat. National “Take Your Cat on an Adventure” Day is the perfect time to try leash walking your cat!”
But of course, not all kitties are fans of the great outdoors, so Adventure Cats has some fun tips on how to bring the adventure inside as well.
