The kittens are about nine months old now. None of them has ever been outside, unless they were in a cat carrier coming here to live, or taking a trip to the vet’s. John says keeping the cats indoors is healthy for them and they will be perfectly happy. I on the other hand have doubts. I see them at the sliding glass door, watching the squirrels, chipmunks and birds outside. Smokey has been scratching at the door. It makes me feel terrible to think they will never be outside. Never be able to lie in the sun. Never bring home a present for me, as disgusting as that may be. Should I feel bad? I don’t know.
What does everyone else think about this? Indoor cat? Outdoor cat? What is better for the cat? I don’t know.
