    because outdoor cats get in fights, get parasites, get run over by cars, get attacked by larger predators, and kill wildlife.  Ask your vet--outdoor cats live shorter and less healthy lives.  Responsible cat owners do the right thing and keep the cats inside.

    Millions of Americans have indoor cats.  Maybe you just need to learn to be a better cat owner instead of letting your cats kill the neighborhood wildlife.

    •  Fights, parasites, cars, blah, blah, blah. (0+ / 0-)

      Heard it all before, romanticized nonsense. Neutering reduces fights,  proper medication prevents parasites, cars are a risk to EVERY creature. As for predator / prey, that is the nature of Life.

      Plus,  I'd much rather have a psychologically sound indoor-outdoor cat that lived a shorter life than one of those neurotic pseudo-feline messes that are the result of overprotective, helicopter pet owners.
