For cats, the vast outdoors is anything but wonderful. Whether they live in the city, the suburbs, or the countryside, outdoor cats face a variety of threats.

They are prone to infectious diseases, most of which are fatal. Cats that live indoors or in catios with enclosures have a better probability of living up to 15 years or longer, but outdoor cats that roam freely run the danger of living less time.

The expense of veterinary care for the treatment of infectious diseases, parasites, and abscesses from animal fights is decreased because indoor cats are often healthier. Indoor cats can lead full lives if their human caregivers use some creative planning.

Of course, keeping a cat inside from the beginning is preferable if you are starting with a kitten or young adult cat. Most cats kept indoors have little desire to leave their comfortable surroundings.

Other cats that are accustomed to escaping the house could wreak havoc on the entire family by screeching, scratching at windows, and trying to flee via open doors. In today’s story, a Redditor has an indoor cat who has had a difficult life and is wary of strangers.

The OP left the upstairs window slightly ajar during a heat wave, only to discover the cat had vanished when they awoke. As you read the complete story below, you will discover what occurs next.

Although cats enjoy the sun, fresh air, and exercise, they are not dependent on being outside to be content. The shift may require some time and patience, but even the most adamant outdoor cat can eventually come around to the comforts of the interior.
