We adopted a kitten when we lived in Sweden years ago. We walked her on a leash in a park across the street, and either my husband or I had to walk in front of her, and Tita would follow. She loved watching the birds that were in the aviaries in the park.

It's pretty hard to walk a cat with a collar but a harness is pretty safe. You;d have to put it on her a few times inside 1st so she got used to it. Then she could safely explore the great outdoors. By the way you don't walk a cat. They walk you. LOL Mattie, my blind FeLV kitty loved going outside and exploring. I used a harness and one of those retractable leashes.
