Keeping your cat inside will help your cat’s health and longevity, improve neighbourhood relations, and protect wildlife. In keeping your cat within your property’s boundary there are many options to suit you and your cat’s needs that will keep them happy, comfortable, and healthy including:
- Keeping your cat in the house with you
- Keeping your cat in the garage or shed at night, or
- Installing cat fencing or enclosures on your property.
With the many benefits of keeping your cat at your property, it is essential to ensure that the spaces you provide meet your cat’s needs. It is vital to provide an appropriate environment to maintain your cat’s physical and behavioural health. This includes making sure they have choice about where they play and rest, as well as providing opportunities to engage in normal cat behaviours such as climbing, pouncing, scratching, and exploring.
