Yes, if a cat has the possibility to go out, we must not imprison it.Cats around here are just part of the meal deal, uh, that is, "circle of life". The cougars, coyotes, occasional fox and bear, and larger raptors gotta eat too. Oh, and gray wolves are coming back as well.
That said, I'm owned by 3 cats, who come and go as they please. As it should be.
