 YOUR CAT:  INDOORS OR OUT?

Like nearly all animal welfare organizations and veterinarians today, Homeward Bound would like to encourage you to carefully consider the benefits of making your cat an indoor cat.  While we know this may not always be possible we know that cats who live indoors live longer, healthier lives, don’t get lost, don’t get injured by cars, animals or unkind people.  They don’t annoy the neighbors.  They don’t kill wild birds and other small wild animals.  The following links provide more information and some fun ideas for keeping your cat happy indoors!
