Keep Your Indoor Cat From Getting Outside

CATBLINDSI’ve said this many times. Indoor cats live longer, healthier lives.  Cats are predators by nature and if you take in a cat who has been used to being outdoors, the first thing that you should do is try to curb his predator behavior. How do we do this?  The answer is to fulfill his needs to engage in predatory behavior.

    I’ve said this many times. Indoor cats live longer, healthier lives. Cats are predators by nature and if you take in a cat who has been used to being outdoors, the first thing that you should do is try to curb his predator behavior. How do we do this? The answer is to fulfill his needs to engage in predatory behavior. Provide toys that your cat can throw around by himself. My cats like the kind with catnip inside. Also provide toys that you could dangle from a stick and shake around. My cat Millie loves to chase her stick every night. It gives them exercise and satisfies their predatory behavior urge. Provide your cat with cat videos that show close ups of rodents and small birds. Position bird feeders or squirrel feeders outside your window so your cat can observe animals coming and going during the day. Doing these things will satisfy your cats urges to “attack.” and keep him safe, happy and secure indoors.
      Remember, your pets count!
