Hi all, We are new to this forum (me and my 3 years old cat Simba) but hope you can share your experience and knowledge. Nearly 2 months ago we adopted Simba from Lady who could no longer keep him. She told us that he is very shy indoor cat and in the past shown not interested of going out even when encouraged. As far as I understand he could access roof through the open window but he wasn't keen. Somehow Simba changed his priorities and twice he managed to slipped out to the front garden. He was super interested to explore but also super nervous. I ended up picking him up and carry home cos he did not respond to my calls. He kept on hissing at me and once put indoor he attacked me Since that incident he really wants to go out - he waits for front door to open or meows to let him out. I feel very bad for keeping him in but thoughts of Simba running away breaks my heart. What should I do? Is there a better way to introduce him to outdoor? Please help.
