This is outwith the normal posting schedule, but just a quick call for some help from anyone that has cats or know about cats: How do you manage a household with one indoor and one outdoor cat?
We are having major issues with our Ginger (that’s him there, with eczema on his eye, poor baby), he’s now got lost 4 times in 3 weeks (he has a tag with our phone number so people call us to get him back), and the last two times he’s turned up really far away and across a really busy road. He’s always starving and then proceeds to sleep for 24 hours straight, so we’re pretty certain he really gets lost and hasn’t just adopted another owner. It’s sad because he does obviously want to go out, but we’ve decided that we’ll need to keep him inside. I reckon if it was just him, he’d get used to it quickly enough, but it’s the fact that Bertie the other cat goes in and out all the time might make it harder. It’s also the logistics of letting one cat go in and out as they please while locking the other in.
So any advice gratefully received!
