My cats are old

My cats are old and have always been indoors. It would not be beneficial to let them roam. They would just get hit by a car, or get beat up by other cats. I don't have a rat problem when I don't put out seed, the people next door do. I have had a few cats in my lifetime that stayed outside, and something bad always happened to them. The only reason my cats are 14 is because they stay inside. They don't even play with the June bugs that get into the house sometimes. I know, useless creatures, like I said before, once you take an animal in, they are yours and yours alone. I don't want to put them in harms way just to see if they will catch a rat. The trap will do better than them, believe me.

We have 4 cats (we inherited 2 grandkittens) and they were indoors in town (sorta). But this spring now that we are at the cabin they were restless and i decided to just let them be cats and do what cats do. So far 5 months and all's well. They are pretty good at getting away from the road when cars come, they're out every nite, they bring us presents nearly every morning, the eagles and owls have been clumsy or well fed elsewhere i guess. Even Cali, our shy one, bounces around in wet grass during thunderstorms now - kind of a freedom she never had before. :)
