The short answer is no. Camp grounds are full of cats who have been lost and left.
The long answer is, camping or at home, cats should never EVER be tethered. Harness train a cat and walk with her, always hanging on to the leash, sure. Or, like I have done, harness train them, take them out in a fenced yard and let them move freely dragging their rope behind them.
But tethering a cat is extremely dangerous. A cat's first reaction to danger, whether real or simply perceived as such, is to flee. A tehered cat can't flee, and could become seriously injured trying.
And, if the danger IS real, such as a dog or wild animal or human who means the cat harm, the cat can't get away from it.
It really ticks me off that PetSmart, who claims to care about animals, would sell such things.
