Hi guys, I'm pretty new to the forum so I'm hoping someone can help me? I have a 2 year old (n) male cat who was a farm kitten but I have kept as an indoor cat from 8 weeks old, & have taken out on a leash for the past 5 months. In the past month or so my partner and I have taken turns in taking him outside in our garden without the leash twice per day while supervising, however, anytime we get up or open the hall door he cries and cries to get out. I've been thinking about letting him out for a while but i'm terrified he wont come back or something will happen to him as he has been an indoor cat for so long. We are unable to fit a cat flap due to being private tennants, however the two cats who live in the flats next to us seem to get in and out without any problems by just crying at the window. My cat also seems to get on very well with the neighbours male cat when he is out and I'm wondering if he might get on better knowing that he can follow the neighbours cat around? Any suggestions would be greatfully received as I'm very apprehensive !!!
