Some people let their cats roam freely so they can explore their neighborhood and stay active mentally and physically. Yet other people keep their cats indoors to prevent the cat from getting hit by a car or hurt by malicious people or animals.

If you have a cat, you may wonder about the pros and cons of keeping a cat inside or outside. Outdoor cats may be free, but they also attack and kill birds. Indoor cats may be confined, but they’re also safer and can’t kill birds.

Remember, cats depend on humans to keep them happy so make your cat happy while keeping it safe at the same time. You want your pet to be safe and you don’t want it to hurt other people’s properties and animals either.
