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.

A safer option might be to order Fiji a harness and taking her for walks.
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.
