Exploring the Outdoors•
Posted on October 26 2016
As an owner, letting your kitten or cat outside for the first time can be quite stressful. We all want to protect our furry friends from danger but there comes a time when most of us decide that it’s time to let them explore. There are lots of health benefits to allowing your cat to go outdoors. They will be mental stimulated, have more space to exercise, can conduct natural behaviour that would be frowned upside inside (e.g. spraying and scratching) and have the freedom to explore. You might find that your cat likes spending hours at a time outside or they might just venture out for the odd half an hour and spend the rest of the time curled up at home. You won’t know until you start letting them out. (Not all cats can be let outside, some have complicated health conditions, others live too close to dangerous roads or their owners feel they are at high risk of being stolen).
