Cat Behaviour Guides / Re: Kitten going outside
« Last post by Judecat (Paula) on October 14, 2018, 19:09:27 PM »
It may be a case of it getting cooler and less cat friendly or maybe he can have it he just isn't so interested now. Who can fathom the minds of cats? I have been owned by them since I was 5 and I still can't work it out. That was 46 years ago.

A couple of our members have sight issues so if you could go to the font size and make it bigger it would be helpful for their input too.

I can imagine having a cat that small and with balance problems would make you want her to be indoor only. Initially I had two sisters, they were from a farm and were put in a rescue, they came to me and I didn't realize they were very ill. They both had watery diarrhoea with blood in it and it was dripping constantly from them. I spent a fortune on the vets on the second day I had them and after a month of nothing helping I had to return one to the rescue as she wasn't improving and I couldn't keep her separate here as no spare room. So my girl cat was now alone but she was OK. When she got to eight months I decided to get a boy and so the trouble began 😂
I am much happier now, he's returned yesterday and today without me calling and he's not actually interested at all today in the big outdoors.
Jude cat, my girl only brings me flies, which I don'tind at all!

I will get a collar though.
This is a great place to learn from more experienced people.

A long time since I heard it, but I think it means a total baby or soppy sox, no doubt I will stand to be corrected.

My cats all have free outside access via a chip reading cat flap, I had a real problem a while back with feeding half the neighbourhood cats, so my cats come in and out as they please, but the others can't get in. It does have its moments when someone comes in late and I wait up heart in mouth until the wanderer returns, but the cats are so much happier. I could live without the presents that are brought home as well. :'(

The decision whether let let cats out is such an individual one and also depends on the nature of the cats.

I have two - Alfie is a big, neutered, male who came to me when he was just under 1 year old. He had been used to going out and pretty much climbs the walls if he has to be kept in for any reason. He likes to go out 'untin' and is good at it too (he has had 3 squirrels in the past couple of years).He would be a match for any fox that was daft enough to have a go! His need to go out over-rides my desire to keep him safe.

My second, Sky, is a little girl who came to us after a few months in RSPCA. She used to go out but was very ill last year and has been left with some balance problems. That, added to the facts that she is very small (2.5kg fully grown) and doesn't mither to go out, is enough for me to keep her inside, although OH is far from happy with this.

Neither of mine wear collars - Alfie simply won't keep one on, Sky is so scaredy that I cannot get a collar on without a great deal of stress (which is not worth it as she doesn't go out). They are both chipped, of course.
