6 yr old kitty, can we let him out?
Hi this is John in Kent, WA. We just adopted two cats (brother & sister) two months ago. They're 6 yrs old and have always been inside only cats.
The big guy is yearning to go outside! Sometimes we let him out briefly and let him roam, only with supervision. I'm kind of afraid he will get lost & not find his way back home. Or possibly get hurt. He's not a small cat (17 lbs).
But it's unfortunate hearing him cry to go outside whenever we go. What to do? Anyone else face this situation? Think he will get along okay if we set him free? Or does a cat need to learn his "outdoor survival skills" at a younger age?
