Should You Let Your Cat Go Outdoors?
Thanks to the creation and marketing of cat litter since the mid 1940s, more and more cats are staying in -- becoming indoors-only pets. As such, cats are generally leading longer, healthier lives. The average indoor cat lives to be ten to twelve years old, and many of us know felines who are older than twenty. Conversely, outdoor-only cats survive for an average of two years in that situation. Our homes offer a safer, healthier environment than life on the street.
