Ambivalent but vote for inside long life

I'd vote for discipline to keep kitty inside. I just buried my angel, Cosette. Here's my Memorial to her.
I'm devastated and heartbroken. She did love the outdoors and had a delightfully happy but short life. I really wish I had yesterday back & had decided to always bring her in at night. I could check on her daily throughout the day, as I'm retired. I'd call her when she wasn't visible. She always came until yesterday's tragedy. I checked on her every night and fed her. She often slept on her tree in the carport, or on the roof of my car, or underneath it. She just preferred that to being inside. If I let her in, she always quickly wanted back out, except if there was thunder and lightning. Then she came in and slept the night on my bed. I'm a light sleeper, so I woke at any sound and immediately went to check on her to make sure she was alright. She always was until my heart shattered. I miss her enormously.
