I love my cat. He has been an indor pet for 10 years. I moved recently and Angel wants to go out. He meows every morning at 5 am to go out . He doesn't stop for awhile. I took him out on a leah with a harness just outside the door. I have done this for 2 weeks. This morning he wanted to venture further than usual. So i went with it. A dog came out of its house barking. Angel flew into the air! Meowed, growled and tried to get away. He sliped right out of his harness and ran home. I know now that he knows where he lives. The question is do i let him out now without a harness and leash? By the way if i don't let him out he attacks my leg and growls at me. What do i do?

Hi Holly, I strongly advise you to keep your cat indoors. Recently there have been many accounts of fisher cats killing pet cats, not to mention other hazards like getting hit by cars, getting lost or getting hurt by other pets. Maybe you could get him some more toys and a scratching post to let out all of that excess energy. Better safe than sorry I can imagine you would be beyond devastated if something did happen. Best of luck.

I have seen so many adopted cats with tags on all the same, running through the streets/yards of EG ! So why aren't they home as house cats to assure their safety ?! When a shelter adopts out cats they always stress they should be indoor cats. So why aren't the adopters complying ? The other night another same tag Dawney street black lil' white on front male fleas all over him ??? Very Sweet Very Vulnerable !

There are so many risks for cats to be outside. Dogs can wear leashes, therefore stay out of danger for the most part, but dogs evolved over many many years to be able to walk on leashes. Cats are not used to this. Cats are the safest inside and are more independent they don't have to be entertained like dogs. Also, you really can't expect to let your cat out just once. Once they go out one time they will get the feel for it and most likely will always be bugging you to go back out or worse-try to sneak out.
