Have you done something which reminds you that you dearly love your cat companion? — 2 Comments

  1. Have I done something? Really?
    I do everything imaginable, especially to safeguard them.
    My indoor loves are well guarded. But, I look like I’m on patrol when it comes to my indoor/outdoor cats. I want to know where they are at every minute of every day. I make “rounds” and have roll call.
    My ferals aren’t short changed at all either. I’m spending hours caretaking them and running off coyotes these days.
    I dearly love them all and do everything within my ability to protect them.

  2. Michael, I’m so glad to know that you got this device. Once a cat leaves our view, we really have no way of knowing what they do. But we do know that they are more vulnerable free roaming outdoors, even though it’s common in your country.

    The reality of all manners of harm are well known: cat haters, intentional poisons, vehicles, other free roaming animals/pets are among them.

    Most animals would prefer to be free roaming, just as most 2 year old children would. We all want to be free to roam at will; it seems to be our nature.

    But most mature humans have the ability to know when it’s safe to cross a street, animals don’t. So, we have to do what we can to protect our pets. If we choose not to, then the consequences can be a maimed or dead pet.

    I know a woman who lives on a well traveled country road. She’s lost 4 cats to vehicle accidents, yet she believes that they deserve to roam.

    The only way I allow my cat outdoors is with a cotton velcro halter and leash, with me close by. She’d prefer to be free roaming, and cries at the door to let me know. I just scoop her up, and distract her with playing or cuddling or her favorite treat, coconut oil.

    My care is shown by control over anything I consider dangerous, which includes pills dropped by roommates, or other items like tacks, needles, and the like which I see on the carpet from time to time.

    Danger lurks in places we might never guess, like the pull strings on blinds, tinsel on Xmas trees, all sorts of odd items at Halloween, including candy dropped by kids.

    Curiosity can kill our cats! Allow it only in safe environments. Treat them like 2 year olds….
