This is a picture which caught my eye because it is quite rare to see a domestic cat on a leash in any case, but when that cat is a purebred British Shorthair and there is snow on the ground, it makes for a fairly unique picture. The only practical way that a person can take a purebred cat outside is on a leash, in my opinion. You can’t let them wander outside as you do with a moggy, especially in Britain as there is fear of theft. So, this the leash works for me. The lady who took the photograph and who is their guardian says that both her cats took to a leash very quickly as kittens. Although they don’t like the snow that much and prefer, as expected, to be inside in the warm. The key to leash training is to start really early as this lady did. It is much harder as an adult.
