    How to train a trail cat?

    This is my cat, Sita (see-tah). She's about 8 years old and super fat. I'd like to train her as a trail cat and I'd like to take her on short rides only about 20-30 miles. Where do I start?

    Fixed it for you.

    Also, since when did you have a comma in your name??
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    i don't know how possible that is. i mean, i have 4 cats, but would i bring them to the woods and ride my bike around? probably not.. i don't know if i'd find them afterwards. plus, they're probably going to be more occupied with hunting whatever animals they can find, than with following me. if you want to bring her with you, like on your person, i don't think that requires training, they do make leashes though.

    First off I'd give her a new identity. Change her name from see-tah to run-nah.

    Forget taking a cat on the trail. I took pounds off of my two cats through scheduled feeding and portion control. My cats spent most of their lives being overweight and now they look pretty darn good.

    Tie a rope around its neck and then to the back of the bike, then have at it!

    If your gawdamn cat knocks me off my bike, or makes me wreck.... I'm gonna start a thread about it... if you let your cat run off leash, everyone will do it.

    at least it will bury it's poo, and not leave it on the trail!

    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?

    Yeah, until it gets stuck up in a tree and you have to hit it with a stick or throw rocks at it!

    Cats don't take well to leashes. A cat carrier is a much better option.

    I can't think about taking your cat on the trail until I sort out the eclectic (and possibly weird) assortment of items beside your cat.
    But back to the topic at hand: rub your down your bike frame with tuna juice, and kitty will follow you anywhere.

    Ha,ha good one.
    As far as the comma well it has been since 05'.
    I have had my handle since 02' when I joined the site. But in 05' this site went through some rstructuring. Most everybody's handle was deleted out on accident. And during that short couple of days some jackwagon latched onto my handle. I was forced to alter it and re-join. That dude since moved on after I had a civilized conversation with him. It's all good.

    There's a trail near me called the Mouse Trail... that'd probably do the trick...
    It's all Here. Now.
