Our cat that we adopted in September was an indoor/outdoor cat. We keep her indoors only and she’s fine with it! She does spend a lot of time in the window though, and loves it when she can go out on our screened in porch. We bought her a perch for her favorite window and she loves that. I do know some people though who actually put their kitties in a little harness and bring them on a walk around their yard every night! That way they get to have a little time outside, but aren’t in any danger or able to get lost. I’m sure the cat would much rather be an indoor kitty than a shelter kitty 🙂

My brother-in-law actually found my cat when his dog chased in up a tree- on a mountain in the middle of nowhere. So she was as outdoor as an outdoor cat can get. She actually stayed with my sister for six months until I could take her, and she was an indoor outdoor cat while she was there (my sister’s house has open pasture on three sides, and a small farm on the other, so it was kind of ideal). But when I took her, I decided to make her an indoor cat. I was afraid she’d flip, but she’s really fine with it. She’s ran outside only twice, once when a repair man was putting new tile in our bathroom (she hates all sorts of handy type men), once after we’d had an earthquake (she was freaked). I make sure she gets tons of play time (check out Da Bird, best cat toy ever!), she has a cat tree by her fav window, and I keep my window sills open for her to hang out on. Good luck with your new kitty!
