The Benefits of Keeping Your Cat Indoors©

  • They’re less likely to be hit by a car crossing the living room than they are crossing the street.
  • They won’t get bitten or get rabies, fleas or worms from free-roaming animals.
  • You won’t have to bail them out of the local animal shelter.
  • It’s unlikely that they will get feline leukemia virus, feline immunodeficiency virus and other contagious diseases.
  • When it’s 10:00 at night, you will always know where your cat is – inside, getting ready to start playing at midnight.
  • They won’t get killed, attacked or eaten by dogs, foxes and coyotes.
  • There is less chance of them getting hurt, abused, tortured, poisoned or killed by humans.
  • They won’t get locked in a garage or shed and freeze to death.
