Should You Let Your Cat Go Outdoors?

When we choose to confine our cat, we have a the responsibility to provide the stimulation that the outside environment provides.  We can include scratching and climbing posts, interactive toys and other objects that a cat enjoys chasing.  These playthings provide excitement, variety and exercise. As the dangers listed below are significant, choosing to provide a safe enclosure for your cat is a wise choice.

Walking your Cat?

The safest ways to allow your cat to enjoy some time outdoors is to either harness-train him or her and go for walks together and provide an outdoor cat enclosure to let them wander around in safety in their own pseudo jungle. After all cats are all tigers at heart

Outdoor cat enclosures come in all shapes and sizes. A variety of building materials is selected based upon what the customer prefers and what is best for the cat. For durability, chain link, chicken wire or wire mesh hardware cloth can be used. Roofing is always a necessity since cats are exceptional climbers. The best structures include climbing and resting furniture inside. A shaded area complete with a water bowl is required for warm or hot weather usage.
