For cats, outdoors is so “in.” Once stuck inside by their careful owners, now more indoor cats are finding ways to enjoy a slice of the outdoors–and they should. So many problems, from obesity to behavioral issues like pissing outside the box, can be helped if a cat has access to the outdoors.
Whether you are ready to spare no expense to give your cats a taste of the outside or prefer to start with a cheaper solution, here are a few ways to get you indoor cat out:
The Leash: Yes, cats can and do wear leashes. It just takes them a while to get used to it, though, so start young and your cat will learn to love it. Remember, avoid dog parks and always let kitty set the pace.
Enclosures: Moving into more dedicated solutions, check out these outdoor kitty cages, not to mention these unusual cat enclosure tunnels for the lawn. Or try this hardcore Kitty Cell Block H anti-escape fencing. Hey, cat’s gotta get his yard on.
Structures: For those not graced with an interior patio or other area that can be cat-proofed, there’s always the creative cat-architectural solutions of tomorrow. You could just open a window, but you could also have a whole kitty outdoor room built. Why not, what is money when a cat’s happiness is at stake?
With these new spaces and structures in place, what cat wouldn’t venture out for a little outdoor stimulation to spice up its indoor existence?
