Keeping cats safe indoors

March 4, 2011

Here is a link to the Portland Audubon society’s Cats and wildlife essay:

This is well written and strong encouragement to keep our pet kitties inside whenever possible.

One danger to outdoor cats are our urban coyotes. Coyotes generally eat small rodents. However, they will take cats who are outdoors. Sadly, I have discovered the remains of a client’s cat who was killed by a coyote. It is something I will never forget and not a pleasant way for a beloved pet to meet their end.

Read through the Audubon Society’s essays and brochures. I will be adding ideas to the blog and our website about keeping cats entertained indoors.
