I have recently got the most beautiful kitten, who has been immediately integrated into the family with no problems. However, I live in a very busy area in London with a very high cat ownership percentage and lots of traffic. The gardens in the area are minute and our direct neighbours own 5 cats altogether. Recently one of them got poisoned and a cat got run over a few months ago. 7 I'm really worried about mine being an outdoor cat, I've seen a kitten being run over and it was absolutely horrific. However, most people think it is cruel to keep a cat permanently indoors. I'm willing to exercise him every day and provide toys, climbing trees etc... to keep him happy but am very reluctant to allow him outside. I have also researched a little and found that indoor cats tend to have a stronger bond with their owners as they are around them more and will not get in fights with other cats, get parasites, run over or poisoned etc. etc. What are your opinions on the situation?
