My cats are staying inside.

by Gloria Parkinson.

I would not dream of letting my three cats roam outside. For one thing cats have disappeared from this neighborhood, they have been taken. I could not let that happen.

Not one of my cats, five altogether with the three I have now, has been unhappy about staying in the home. They know that they are safe in here, and they get extremely well looked after.

You say that if you keep your cat inside then the cat will behave badly, not so. All my cats are very well behaved. They do not get bored at all I spend a good deal of time with them, they have a box full of their toys, and they also have each other.

There are so many bad things that can happen to cats outside apart from being taken. My cats mean so much to me to let that happen.

Outdoor Indiana Kitty

My cat, Kee, is an outside cat. I think it is a wonderful idea because I don't have to purchase a litter box and he just adores going outside. If my cat is happy, I am happy!!!

my out door cat

by lyss

my cat is outdoor. hes only allowed in the back yard, and has lots of food and water there. he has a cat house (like a dog house) for when it's raining, and he's sheltered under a patio roof, and he can climb the tree (and get down). he likes it because he can jump around the garden, eat the grass, chase mice, and be outdoors. the ground's cool and he naps there. he also gets to exercise a lot.

My cat would kill me if I made her stay inside!

My 10 year old cream tabby (part LaPerm) loves being outdoors - she is my little huntress. But I am more comfortable when she's outside during the day and inside at night. Raccoons, rats, even other cats, all present danger to my cat in this neighborhood.

It is also important to have them ID'd and make sure their shots and worm medicines, flea medicines, etc. are up to date.

I've known people who have indoor cats. One was in an apartment house, and seemed fine. She sat on the large windowsill and watched the world go by. The other two cats stayed in a smaller duplex. They were both bored and kind of nutty. They were not particularly loving even to their owner, and she spent all her free time playing with them. They liked to play but they always just seemed basically ill at ease.
