Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
You husband is bad, Sen ;-)

I donít remember if we ever did this but I think older UK ways would often have put the cat out for the night but I think that largely fell out of favour. Feelings on indoor/outdoor vs indoor can seem to follow a UK/North American divide although perhaps more over here keep their cats in all the time now?

Probably my biggest feeling on this concerns animals that have had the taste for the outdoor life. This could be one like Mewan who found us while still a kitten but had lived all her first part outside and more so with one like Furball whoís known that life as an adult.

Perhaps Iíd feel more inclined to try indoor only with one thatís never known that. I donít know there but, while we are going for in at nightime, with Furball, Iíd likely always finish up with the feeling at some point of depriving our type of cats of something important to them if they were denied the chance to do their own thing outside at other times.
