A Healthy Outdoor Cat
Outdoor Fun for Indoor Cats
The great outdoors is a good way for your cat to get some exercise and release stress. In fact, cats that go outside have fewer health and behavior problems, Marla J. McGeorge, DVM says.
"Sunlight, fresh air, and outdoor exercise are important for cats' well-being," she says. Your indoor cat can enjoy a bit of the outdoors and stay safe with these feline-friendly ideas:
Harness and leash training. With a little time and patience, leash training is another way to let your kitty get outside. Use a harness when leash training since cats can escape from simple collars when they're spooked.
Indoor window boxes and window perches
. In several rooms of your house, set up window boxes and perches to give kitty some sunshine and fresh air.
