Indoor vs outdoor cat: Which should you have? This is a debate that has raged on in pet-loving communities for decades.
Cats were once kept not as pets, but as pest control. But increasing urbanization has meant there’s less need to have a cat to keep mice from getting into your pantry. Instead, cats have become the perfect pets for urban dwellers: Small, lower maintenance than dogs, and able to thrive in small spaces like apartments.
There’s just one problem: Many cats want to go outside to hunt and explore. Should you let them? That’s the big question.
When it comes to indoor vs outdoor cats, there are passionate arguments on both sides. We’re here to present all the facts and help you make the choice that’s best for your kitty — and to keep him or her safe no matter what you choose.
