Keeping a cat inside can ensure your cat stays safe from cars, dogs, and malicious humans roaming around your neighborhood. However, outdoor cats get plenty of exercise and mental stimulation that indoor cats lack. So it’s important to give an indoor cat plenty of stimulation as well.

Think of getting a toy that your indoor cat can chase. The simplest toys are balls but more complicated ones are wind up toys or battery powered robots. Another way to stimulate your cat is to provide it with plenty of access to windows so your cat can stare out the window and watch birds and squirrels. The more ways you keep your indoor cat happy, the more it won’t miss the outdoors after all.
