Meow Monday: Inside/Outside

The cats have had three homes now in their short little lives (not counting their extended visits with hubby’s Grandparents!). They used to have free reign inside and out when we lived in MS.  There was a park nearby but they mostly hung out on the front porch… wait, scratch that… Cora mostly tried to get herself killed by getting stuck in trees and caught by animal control.

When we moved to CA, they were suddenly inside-only cats with about 600 square feet of space to share. They tolerated each other pretty well, but the confined space led to plenty of spats over territory.

Now in TN, we have a bit more space but the most important improvement (for the cats, anyway) is the screened-in porch.  It keeps them contained with plenty of people/dog/bird watching to keep them entertained.  But really, all a cat needs is some sunshine and a human or two.  I suppose they’re technically still indoor-only cats, but that patch of porch has made all the difference for these outdoor-loving kitties.

It’s a win-win compromise for everyone, human and feline.

  1. I don’t know how you managed having to keep them inside in your second home. And how do people in apartments do it! I couldn’t just physically – my two RUN for the door when I come home from work everyday if they’ve been inside. My aunt in NY tells me they can’t leave their pets out because of squirrels and the danger or rabies! I’m so glad we don’t have that problem here in Ireland because my cats would freak out if they had to be indoor only lol.
