Letting cats outside is important for your cats’ health and has many advantages that allow them to feel free by climbing and running in the open air. This helps cats to remain active and healthy, both physically and mentally.
Unfortunately, outdoor cats face many dangers when roaming the streets, which may be a major threat to their health and even result in death.
Statistically, cats that roam the neighbourhood live on average eight years less than cats contained to their own property. Roaming cats are at great risk of injury, illness and even death from dangers that lurk beyond the fence line including dog attacks, getting hit by a car, contracting contagious diseases, and even being stolen or impounded by Animal Management Officers.
Free-roaming cats inevitably face expensive vet bills from preventable injuries, illnesses and accidents. They are also a danger to native wildlife when left to roam the neighbourhood, especially in parks, reserves and wetland areas.
An indoor cat spends most of its time in the confinement of a home. While keeping your cat inside may seem like the safest choice, it may underwhelm the animal as compared to the outdoors. Luckily, there are ways to ensure your cat’s safety outside your home, to help meet their physical and developmental needs.
You can introduce your cat to the great outdoors by walking it on a leash, sending it off into the world with a GPS around the collar or building a catio. These cat containment solutions are not ideal as pet GPS does not guarantee safety and catios offer limited roaming space. Installing an open-air cat enclosure along the perimeter of your property has proven to be the most balanced option. It provides a combination of security and open-air access to your cat. Unlike a catio, an enclosure installed on top of your existing fence does not take away any space from your yard. At the same time, it provides your cat with the maximum amount of outdoor freedom while keeping it in a safe space. Cats can enjoy nature by chewing on grass, catching unfamiliar sounds, and chasing insects around the yard. This will keep them busy, entertained and fit. Although this solution might be a larger investment, yet, in the end, the cat will thank you for it.
