Inside Cat or Outside Cat?
Wondering if you should allow your cat to go outside
unsupervised? Well there are definitely some pure breeds
never be outside cats. Hairless
breeds like the Sphynx
are extremely vulnerable and should always be supervised outdoors.
Docile breeds like the Burmese
may not be able to defend themselves. All cats allowed
outdoors are exposed to diseases and parasites that they would not
otherwise encounter. Fred Flintstone put his saber-tooth out every
night, but the cat jumped right back in the window - and he was a
saber-tooth! Still, most of us feel a little envy when we see our
domestic companion out on some high perch, sniffing the breeze of
liberty, and there is no doubt that cats love their freedom.
