Many people take their cats for walks on leashes, especially in Finland which is a country of cat lovers but with a high number of apartments without gardens.
It's a common sight to see people out and about with their cats. Katariina is one woman who regularly takes her pet out.
"We do have a garden but it is very small," she said.
"My cat Aarii loves it outdoors but I feel she needs to have wider horizons than our garden and needs more exercise. I take her out on a leash every other day for a long walk in the park.
"She loves it and she does all the things she does at home, exploring under bushes, rolling in the dust and checking out the birds. There's one long wall where she jumps up and walks along it. She's become a bit of an attraction for some of the local children - and, boy, does she show off!"
Unfortunately, not all cats like to be on a leash!:
