  • Although I have no cats at this cats were always house cats. I don't agree with my dog running around pooping in people's yard, nor would I want my cat to be doing it. My vet told me that cats are more prone to bringing in diseases if they are indoor outdoor cats because they catch mice, rats, squirrels, that can carry germs, and bubonic plaugue. I couldn't see my kids petting kitty after that.

  • yes. Our cat doesn't have a litter box, she goes outside to go to the bathroom. She is litter trained, but she and we prefer she goes outside. At times she will bring a "present" but she knows not to bring them into the house.

  • No, my cats are all indoor-only, and the whole "dead animal" thing is just one of the reasons why. I know cats are natural hunters, but my cats are well-fed and don't NEED to hunt for food, so anything they kill would just be needless destruction of wildlife. I love all animals, including birds, squirrels, rabbits, etc and don't want my cats slaughtering them.
