Good, better, best: Cat strollers your feline friend will love

If your indoor cat longs to go outdoors, there’s still a way to safely let her spend some quality time outside. With a cat stroller, your cat can enjoy all the sights, smells, and sounds that come with nature — while staying safely confined and protected. A cat stroller can let you both enjoy some quality time together and go for adventures through the neighborhood, to the park, and anywhere else life might take you. But cat strollers aren’t all built the same, and it’s important to choose one that’s safe and that works for you and your cat. Read on to discover three of the best cat strollers — one of them might be just right for your furry friend.

Good: Pet Gear Travel Lite Pet Stroller

The Pet Gear Travel Lite Pet Stroller offers excellent value and will let you and your cat take a safe and enjoyable stroll around the neighborhood together. Its quick-fold mechanism makes for superfast and simple assembly without the need for any tools. The stroller is equipped with a waterproof liner that you can remove for easy cleaning in case of accidents. A top and front mesh window means your cat will have a great view of her surroundings and plenty of air, too. Back brakes keep you in control and let you stop quickly if needed. This stroller is lightweight, so it’s easy to push, and its top-load style makes it easy to get your cat in and out. It’s available in three colors.

Why we like it:

  • Affordable
  • Waterproof liner makes it easy to clean
  • Easy to set up and get your cat in and out

Better: Petique Dog & Cat Stroller

With the Petique Dog & Cat stroller, your cat will be riding in style and comfort. The stroller features mesh windows that deliver great ventilation and that also let your cat keep an eye on the surroundings. Large tires can handle multiple types of terrain, and they swivel and lock to keep you in control. The stroller features a large front storage basket and two pockets in back, so you can keep cat treats, water, and a water bowl handy. The handle even includes two cupholders, so you can take your morning coffee with you on your neighborhood jaunt. The stroller’s folding mechanism is a snap to use, requiring just one hand for easy folding and storage. The stroller weighs 17.6 pounds, so it’s not hard to push.

Why we like it:

  • Tires well built for various types of terrain
  • Ample storage space
  • Easy folding and storage

Best: Paws & Pals 2-in-1 Detachable Dog & Cat Stroller & Carrier

Thanks to its unique design, the Paws & Pals 2-in-1 Detachable Dog & Cat Stroller & Carrier solves the challenge of trying to safely get your cat into a stroller without bringing the whole stroller into your house. It features a detachable pet carrier, so you can bring the carrier into the house, load up your cat, and then reattach the carrier to the stroller. This carrier also means you can move your cat from the stroller to the car or even use it alone as a carrier to take your cat to the vet. The carrier features a zippered front for easy loading. The mesh window has a retractable canopy so you can give your cat shade and keep the temperature comfy. Extra storage space near the base means you can bring extra supplies.

Why we like it:

  • Detachable pet carrier makes it easy to load cats
  • Ample storage space
  • Features a retractable canopy for your cat’s comfort

All three of these strollers make a great choice for safely taking your cat outdoors, spending some time at the park, or walking around your neighborhood. These strollers are designed to keep your cat safe, and with features that allow for ventilation and a great view, your cat can sit back and enjoy the ride. When choosing the right stroller, think about the types of terrain that you’re likely to travel over, as well as the types of items that you want a stroller to have storage for. Be sure to double-check each stroller’s size and weight capacity, too, to make sure that it’s a good fit for your cat.

How to cat-proof your balcony before the unthinkable happens
Tips to keep your kitty safe while on the balcony

It's tempting to spend some time outside with your cat whenever the weather is nice, and taking your cat outside can give him a nice break from indoor-only life. If you love to spend time on your balcony, it's natural to consider letting your cat join you, but balconies can be dangerous for cats. In addition to the potential for a fall, balconies have several other risks that you might not be aware of. Understanding how to cat-proof a balcony can help you to make the space safer, so you and your cat can spend a little time outside together.

Will a cat jump off a balcony?
Balconies can be very dangerous for cats because of the possibility of "high-rise syndrome." Always Compassionate Veterinary Care explains that high-rise syndrome refers to the occurrence of cats falling out of high-rise buildings and needing veterinary treatment. The term originates when the Animal Medical Center in New York City treated more than 100 cats who fell out of high-rise windows. That occurred during just five months in the 1980s and highlights the fact that cats can and do fall out of high structures.

How to tell if your cat is a Maine Coon mix (and why you should care)
Should you consider a Maine Coon mix? Here's what you need to know
Closeup of a Maine Coon's face

There are plenty of big and fluffy cats out there, but one of the best-known breeds fitting this description is the Maine Coon. These cats are not only impressive in size, but they also tend to have fantastic personalities that make them beloved family pets. While purebred Maine Coons are a little more uncommon in rescues and shelters, it's possible to adopt a Maine Coon mix that still has some of the breed's distinctive characteristics.

While telling exactly which breeds your cat is can be a little tricky, it's worth doing some investigative work to better understand your feline's background and what that might mean for the care he needs during his life.
Where do Maine Coon cats come from?
You may have heard that the Maine Coon Cate originated from a fantastical cross between a feline and a raccoon. Of course, this didn't really happen, but it could be where they get the name. (Another option, from a ship's captain who brought the first of these kitties ashore.)

There’s a totally normal reason cats throw up after eating grass – here’s why
Learn about this cat behavior and if there's cause for concern

If your cat throws up after eating grass, there's probably no reason to be concerned. Eating grass is a natural behavior for most cats, and throwing up after eating that grass also is pretty common. There are physical reasons for why your cat throws up grass, and aside from dealing with the inconvenience of having to clean up cat vomit in the house, this behavior usually isn't a problem.

But excessive vomiting and unusual grass consumption can be a cause for concern. If your cat likes to munch grass, then it's best to familiarize yourself with what's normal and what might be a reason to worry.
