I got a cat at the shelter and meaows all day because she wants to go but I want her to be an indoor cat

will she get used to being inside or will the meowing and trying to be tricky to get outside last all summer?
When i have let her out she strats fights with other cats and last time she escaped she came back smelling like old motor oil and had grimmey fur.

  • Keep her inside just give a nice window with a cat tower(and some cat toys catnip always works for mine-keep the windows open for her too) and the both of you will be much happier and your cat will be much healthier too less chance of getting a disease or worse.

  • I think she will get used to being an indoor kitty after a while. You can take her outside on a leash a couple times/day.
