How Do You Rig a Cat’s Fishing Pole?

Rigging a cat’s fishing pole is an enjoyable and rewarding experience. By providing your cat with an engaging activity, you can develop a stronger bond between the two of you. Plus, it’s just plain fun to watch your feline companion trying to catch a fish!

The first step in rigging a cat’s fishing pole is to choose the appropriate equipment. A basic fishing rig for cats includes a rod, reel, line, hook and bait. You will also need pliers or scissors for cutting the line and tying knots.

If you are using live bait, such as worms or minnows, you will need to attach them to the hook with thread or dental floss. When using artificial bait, simply attach it directly to the hook. Make sure that the bait is securely attached so that it won’t slip off the hook while your cat is trying to catch a fish.

Next, determine where you will be taking your cat fishing. It can be at a local pond or lake; however, make sure that there are no laws prohibiting cats from being there. You should also make sure that there are no hazards in the area such as sharp objects or chemicals.

Once you have chosen an appropriate location for fishing with your cat, it’s time to cast out the line. Hold onto the reel firmly and make sure that your cat does not get tangled up in the line as it is being cast out. You can also put float on your line so that you can track its progress.


Your kitty will most likely take some time getting used to this new activity; however, once they get comfortable with it they may even start catching some fish! Be patient with them and provide lots of positive reinforcement when they do something right – like catching their first fish! This will help ensure that they continue enjoying this fun activity.


Rigging a fishing pole for cats is not only rewarding but also great fun for both pet and owner alike! By following these steps and providing plenty of patience and encouragement, your kitty can soon become an expert angler. So grab some gear and head out on an adventure – just don’t forget who’s really in charge of all those catches!
