Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I hate when he can say I told you so!

Posted by   + Show Post
So we live on the 2nd floor of an apartment building and I have a decent sized balcony that I let the cats go on when I'm home and can keep an eye on them.

Well we haven't had Evie and Guinevere long so they haven't learned that they can't go on the ledge outside the balcony and my fiancé bitches about me letting them out on the balcony because he's afraid one will fall down and we will lose her.

Well take a wild guess what happened today? Yup Guinevere fell down to the ground and it took me about 15 minutes to get her and bring her back in the house

She's ok, though obviously very cautious and won't go anywhere near the door but now my fiancé can say I told you so :-/

I've learned my lesson, no kitties outside. Period.

Yes they do. Cats live a hell of a lot longer when they are strictly indoor cats than if they were outside cats besides the fact that I live in an apartment that says animals love inside not outside.

Quoting atyou:

No they don't.



Quoting Roxygurl:

Noooo kitties belong INSIDE





Quoting atyou:

Aw.







Kitties belong outside. =(

Quoting TashaB82:

I wouldn't tell him then!

Quoting Roxygurl:

I'm contemplating telling him, he is actually on a business trip



Quoting TashaB82:

I hate it when I'm proved to be wrong too!

Cats are domesticated. Most wouldn't survive living outside.

Some ass clown abandoned their cat, and it always hangs around our door. It either knows I'm a sucker or my kids secretly feed him! If it weren't for extra rent and a $300 deposit, I'd take it.

Yea if you want them to die from fights, diseases, getting hit by cars, being tortured by others who hate cats or being stolen...Yea that all sounds great if you love your pet. The lifespan of a indoor cat is 12-15 years...and outdoor cat is 2-5 years.
