Giving an Indoor Cat an Outdoor Space

Although many people see cats as an animal that naturally roams, is this just because it is something that we are used to? After all dogs once were allowed to roam too, however most dog owners would never dream of letting their dog out to roam the area nowadays.

The subject of indoor versus outdoor cats can be one that both sides of the argument are passionate about, however, as times change and the amount of traffic on the roads increases, not to mention the other hazards that cats face when roaming, is it time to start considering the same rules to apply to cats as they do to dogs?

Some people hate the thought of a cat that is indoor only and not able to go out. However, there are many ways that you can get around this whilst keeping your cat safe. Firstly, cat proofing the garden is something that is becoming more and more popular. You can get a company to do this, or you can do it yourself. You can get a professional like this fencing Cheltenham based company www.greenfieldsltd.co.uk/services/fencing to install the initial fencing, and then you can easily fix on the rollers or the mesh that will make it less possible for the cat to get out. This gives the cat outdoor access to the garden only.

Another option that will require patience and training and is not suited to all cats is harness training. Getting your cat used to a harness and lead can then mean you can take them out around the garden under your supervision.
