I agree with everyone too. Keep him inside! If you would like to take him on a new adventure outside start training him to go on a leash with a lead. You will need to buy a harness that goes around his neck and belly or upper chest rather(behind his arms) and you'll need a leash. Start by putting the harness on him and give him treats and praise him (by petting him since he's deaf). Let him roam around the house with the harness on for 1/2 hour then slowly increase the time he has it on. Once you see he is comfortable running around in it and playing then add the leash to it and let him walk around the in the house with it dragging behind him. This will allow him to get use to the feel of it pulling on him. Again when you feel he is comfortable then take him for a walk. He may not walk at first but rather he will just lay there crouched down but give him treats and keep praising him and have patients. Eventually he will get the idea and you could enjoy walking him and allowinghim to explore safely.

Taking your time is the only way you will get the cat to like it. You can't expect the cat to like it right away but don't give up. Try to do what I explained in the previous post and see how it turns out. It's worth your time if you want to be able to give your cat the ability to explore safely.
