I don't know why, but it's not as endearing.
I have one of those body leashes for cats (and ferrets and tiny dogs). I tried it on my cat and it just didn't happen. I basically just mopped the linoleum with their fur. I tried it outside, and they practically walked me.
I asked Victor, "So if I get a kitty stroller, will you walk them too?"
He was hesitant.

When I adopted my newest kitten.
This is him. He's the sweetest. He has very wonky hind legs, so when he runs, he runs diagonally. He also can't jump, so he has to claw himself up my bed. He's very healthy though. I just have to put a chair or some other platform for him to step on if he wants to go on top of something.

Not so much their water bowl. Sometimes, yes. But they prefer more fancy means. The faucet, by far, is my creamsicle cat's favourite. She especially loves it if I cup my hand under the trickling water and she drinks from my palms. If I pull away she will meow and paw at me.

Last Holiday month, we drove from San Francisco to Phoenix to see family. This would normally take us about 12 hours. But with pets, it took us about 15+ hours. This included frequent stops for feeding, cleaning, walking and breathing. It gets stuffy quickly, especially inside a compact car. I'd feel sad boarding the pets at a hotel for 2 weeks.
That and my cats will end up resenting me if I leave them for that long. Last time I left them for a few days, they left pretty nasty "presents" on my bed. Eep.
